Plan Your Monitoring System

Software – Advanced DECK software is the heart of every DECK monitoring solution. Each customer gets access to a password-protected Admin Panel that is packed with system management tools, including performance alarms and powerful analytic graphic abilities. These tools will help O&M detect performance issues quickly and locate problem areas before they lead to significant revenue loss.

Each customer also gets a personalized Dashboard. This web page is intended for public display and is an ideal tool to generate positive green PR. You can customize your Dashboard with a logo, image files, and your own copy… you can even match your brand colors. DECK also offers touch-screen kiosk displays for building lobby areas.

Hardware Procurement & Fulfillment – DECK Monitoring offers hardware procurement service in order to provide integrators and installers with convenient turn-key solutions. Many hardware packages are pre-wired and pre-configured by DECK, expediting the on-site installation process.

  1. Start with Basic Monitoring Hardware: all monitoring systems require a meter, CTs, and a gateway device. DECK sources revenue-grade meters from Veris and Elkor and will source the more appropriate meter to meet your project specs. DECK will provide split-core CTs to match your system size. DECK sources the AcquiSuite 8810 gateway from Obvius.
  2. Choose Among Several Basic Monitoring Hardware Packages: you may choose to receive these hardware items packed separately and execute all wiring and configuration tasks yourself. Other packages provide the meter and gateway pre-wired and mounted in a weatherproof enclosure for a simplified installation experience. Consult the current Soligent catalog or call a Soligent agent for a complete list of Basic Monitoring Hardware Packages from DECK.
  3. Get Inverter Data: Inverter communications let you examine inverter performance side by side with other system data and avoids the necessity of site visits to get inverter readings. DECK can communicate with most major inverter brands… consult a Soligent agent for details.
  4. Weather Stations Provide Valuable Irradiance Data: environmental sensors greatly increase the analytic power of your monitoring system by providing irradiance data. This information accounts for cloud cover to enable the most accurate assessment of your system’s performance in all weather conditions.
  5. Consider Granular Monitoring Options: you may choose to expand your analytic capabilities by purchasing sub-array or string level monitoring on the DC side of your system. Granular monitoring can detect isolated performance issues in your array that may go unnoticed with just AC side monitoring. Detect smaller performance issues before they add up to big financial losses… then locate the problem areas quickly and efficiently.
  6. Consider Wireless Communication Needs: avoid costs associated with digging trenches and running wires by using paired ModHopper transceivers. DECK can also provide cellular modems for project locations without access to a wired web network.
  7. Choose Interactive Display Monitors: DECK can provide touchscreen displays for building lobby areas. Choose among desktop, wall mount, or kiosk-style displays.

Managed Services – DECK offers a full suite of managed services to help you achieve a successful monitoring experience:

  1. Engineering Services: experienced DECK engineers help plan custom systems and provide one-line diagrams for most monitoring solutions from DECK.
  2. OTIS (On-site Technical Installation Service): DECK will send an experienced support technician to your project site to provide oversight and advice for your monitoring installation.
  3. Full Installation Service: DECK can provide full installation service anywhere in the continental U.S.
