PV String Monitoring Solution

Electronic Cards for use in PV Combiner Box Applications

Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution

  • The goals of PV String Monitoring

    • For the investor: to measure energy produced and forecasted revenues

    • For the operator: to detect defects for maintenance

       But most existing systems have huge limitations

      • Precision is not good enough at inverter level

      • Monitoring systems are proprietary

      • Data interpretation is not easy

         Need for high quality universal monitoring systems


Mersen pv string monitoring solution1

Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution

  • The advantages of string level monitoring

    • Detection of problems as soon as they appear

    • Precise localization of problems in the PV installation

Pro-active maintenance

Optimized PV installation performance

Secured ROI, predictive revenues and reduced OPEX

Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution

  • Product Offering

    • Flexible, High Performance Solution

    • Three Electronic Cards

      • MAIN Card

      • AUX Card

      • PROBE Card


Mersen pv string monitoring solution5

Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution

  • Monitor 6 to 30 strings by connecting up to (4) AUX Cards to the MAIN Card

  • Monitor up to 8 external inputs (7 analog + 1 digital) by connecting the PROBE Card


Pv string monitoring solution

  • Diagnostic & control:

  • 4 digital inputs

  • 3 external relay control

Communication: MODBUS on isolated RS485 (1.2km cable)

  • Aux Card extension:

  • up to 4 Aux. cards in parallel

  • 6 strings monitored per card

  • 6, 12, 18, 24 or 30 strings can be monitored by one single box

  • 32bits microcontrollers

  • Modbus Communication

  • Measurement & data processing

  • 16Mbit memory (6 months data storage worse case)

  • Probe Card extension:

  • 1 digital sensor

  • 7 analog sensors:

    • 4-20mA, ±1% precision

    • 1-10V, ±1% precision

  • 6 PV string inputs

  • Max voltage: ± 1000 Vdc

  • Max current: ± 25 A

  • Precision: ± 0.5%

  • Autonomous power supply from PV strings

  • 250Vdc to 1000Vdc string voltage

  • Low power consumption: 4W @1000Vdc

  • Reliable operating range

  • -40°C to +70°C operating temperature

  • onboard temperature sensors (-40°C to +100°C ±2°C)

  • Integrated Bus Bar

  • 150A combined output (two output terminals, 75A each)

Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution

  • Features and Benefits

    • Built-in Power Supply – Take power directly from the PV string. Eliminates the need to purchase and install a separate power supply to power the monitoring device

    • Accuracy – 0.5% precision

    • Voltage and Current Measurement – Additional voltage measurement provides a greater level of detail and is required by some integrators


Mersen pv string monitoring solution7

Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution

  • Features and Benefits

    • Flexible 6-String Device – Allows for greater flexibility (can be configured for 6, 12, 18, 24 or 30 string boxes)

    • Integrated Bus Bar – Combines strings into 1 or 2 outputs based on ampere rating. Eliminates the need for separate comb bus bar

    • Increased Functionality – Option to connect up to 8 external sensors (anemometer, thermometer, sun sensor, etc…)
