Draker Corporation, a global provider of data management, analytics and control systems for distributed power generation and a subsidiary of BlueNRGY Group Limited, announced its new generation data acquisition and control systems for connecting solar power plants with Draker’s monitoring and analytics platform. The new systems will be available for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The data-handling protocols and communications interfaces are optimized for Draker’s monitoring software, which is offered as a subscription service. Both DAACS designs build on Draker’s experience of more than a decade delivering the industry’s highest reliability data acquisition solutions. Each configuration now incorporates two-way communications and control capability to increase operational efficiency and ensure compliance with demanding interconnection requirements in most global markets, including all states and territories of the U.S.

Draker’s new entry-level solution is tailored for smaller power plants and sites that require a limited number of data collection points. Draker has tightly integrated everything needed to reliably monitor inverters, performance instruments and meters along with cellular network connectivity into a single low-power device. Its streamlined configuration and practical options provide the essential features needed to track, operate and meet performance and profitability goals of smaller-scale installations.

Draker’s new generation flagship product is designed for larger commercial and small utility-scale installations. This system configuration has the performance and capabilities to monitor and control complex sites with hundreds of monitored devices (smart combiner boxes, storage systems, etc.). It draws on Draker’s expansive library of interface software to enable connection to nearly any device and collects data at a fast sampling rate. Draker is excited to be offering this data acquisition and control hardware at a price point that delivers the best value in the industry.


Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
