The device uses wireless communication technology to monitor each microinverter or optimizer without additional wiring. Data sampling intervals of between four and 60 seconds allow real time performance monitoring and rapid detection of operational failures.
A web-based monitoring portal gives plant operators and installers easy access to daily and historical data of their PV application. According to the company, the setup and configuration of the AURORA CDD is easy as the box just needs to be installed within 50 meters of the installation. The maximum distance between the application and the CDD can be additionally extended with a repeater. Up to 30 microinverters can be directly monitored by a single AURORA CDD.
