Our SiteMonitor products permit the monitoring and control of equipment at any site which has IP connectivity. Designed to provide low-cost monitoring and control, the SiteMonitor products are the perfect addition to any remote site, or to any supported equipment you want to be able to monitor and control. This is the newest version of our SiteMonitor Base Unit, the Base Unit 3. It contains a brand new web interface designed from the ground up to be mobile-friendly and easy to use, and several other new or refreshed features better described below.
Customers who already have a SiteMonitor system with an earlier Base Unit will find that the SiteMonitor Base 3 - Classic Edition is electrically compatible with existing systems. This means that no re-wiring will be necessary to upgrade sites to the Base 3. In addition, existing expansion modules will be able to be used directly with the Base 3. Initially a limited type of modules will be supported. Documentation on which modules are currently supported is available at the documenation link above. Additional firmware will be released over a few months to support most, if not all, of the existing modules in the field.
The Base 3 acts as the foundation of the SiteMonitor system, with a 10/100 Ethernet interface to connect to a TCP/IP-based network. In addition to the web interface, it also accepts SNMPv1 or SNMPv2 queries to permit monitoring of attached devices.
The Base 3 includes a few built-in inputs and outputs. The built-in functionality was designed with a small solar site in mind. For many sites, you may only need the Base 3. However, if you need more capabilities, there are numerous expansion modules available which are connected via the expansion port. Modules available include remotely-controlled PoE Injection, Cambium Compatible Synchronization, additional analog and digital I/O. In addition, modules are available to permit monitoring of other devices such as Solar Charge Controllers and UPS'es. If you don't find a module which fits your needs, please contact us as we're always looking to add support for other devices.
The Base Unit 3 Classic Edition has the following inputs:
