Locus Energy’s LGate M-100 Lite is a web-enabled datalogger for monitoring solar photovoltaic systems. It is designed to collect, store, and upload a wide array of energy data allowing both system installers and owners to efficiently manage solar assets.
The LGate M-100 Lite can monitor nearly any type of solar energy system. Regardless of inverter, sensor or meter type, it can read data from all devices that speak modbus. Performance data is aggregated and uploaded to the LocusNOC™ platform, which provides custom tools and analytics to all project stakeholders.
The LGate M-100 Lite can gather data from up to 16 third-party devices, which is collected via RS485 protocol. All data feeds are stored in non-volatile memory every 5 minutes and then uploaded with unique identifiers to provide maximum flexibility as to how the data is presented on the LocusNOC platform.
The LGate M-100 Lite has a configurable network interface that supports both Local Area Network (LAN) and USB cellular network options. For LAN-based installations, a hard-wired Ethernet cable is the preferred connection method, but if this is unavailable, the LGate M-100 Lite features a built in USB outlet for easy installation of an optional cell modem kit.
Data is transmitted only in outbound sessions over open ports, requiring no additional network or firewall configuration. The connection and commissioning process is further simplified by LED lights, which indicate communication status without installers having to log in to any kind of complex setup processes. The LGate M-100 Lite is a simple, self-configurable device and partners do not require any Locus intervention to commission the M-100 Lite at their PV sites.
