Locus Platform Supports Direct Integration of Solar Performance Data Feeds from Campbell Scientific Data Logging Hardware
August 24, 2015, Hoboken, NJ – Today, Locus Energy, a performance monitoring and data analytics platform provider for the distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) market, announced its platform supports direct integration of solar performance data feeds from Campbell Scientific data logging hardware. Campbell Scientific is a provider of data loggers, data-acquisition systems, and measurement and control products. Locus Energy’s unique application program interface allows users of Campbell Scientific data loggers to seamlessly implement Locus Energy’s fleet management and data analytics solutions.
“With this new integration, solar asset stakeholders with existing or planned projects can adopt premium software solutions without the added cost of new hardware systems,” says Michael Herzig, CEO of Locus Energy. “Knowing how critical performance data is, we have always been driven by unparalleled customer service, and we’re happy to extend this offering.”
Campbell Scientific hardware users can now easily implement Locus Energy’s cloud-based asset management software, SolarNOCTM. The software provides enterprise-class tools for fleet managers to collect, organize and assess performance data from a diverse set of solar PV assets. Additionally, they can utilize Locus Energy’s PVIQ Suite of advanced analytics tools. Leveraging an unparalleled data set and the deepest intellectual property portfolio in the industry, Locus Energy’s PVIQ Suite is ideally positioned to provide differentiated analytics. The tools offer real-time intelligence on performance, allowing asset managers to easily identify which systems are not meeting performance expectations and the reasons for that under-performance.
The integration with Campbell Scientific is the latest in a broad set of tools Locus Energy has developed to help the growing number of asset owners looking to migrate to its platform. “Since we’ve demonstrated that our platform can increase plant revenue by 1.5 to 2.5 percent, we’ve seen strong interest from fleet managers seeking to transition legacy assets,” says Herzig.
