solar monitoring with a difference

  • advanced solar monitoring system with high sampling rates (1 sec data)
  • ideal for analysing short term power fluctuations or long term resource assessment
  • integrates with on-site SCADA via Modbus and data is available via Flightdeck

The Fulcrum3D Solar Monitoring system is a fully automated remote sensing system designed to accurately measure solar irradiance and other weather parameters. It is a portable stand-alone unit, delivered complete with its own mounting hardware, GPS locator, solar power supply and communications system. The system can be integrated with CloudCAM for a host of additional features.

product options


The Fulcrum3D Solar Monitoring system is based around the FDL1 datalogger platform and includes two pyranometers, temperature/humidity sensor, and GPS receiver all as standard equipment. Parameters can be set to measure long term averages for resource assessment, as well as rapid measurement changes to understand system dynamics such as cloud edge effects.
