Remotely Monitoring Industrial IoT (IIoT) Sensors for Real-Time Telemetry with Solar Power Charge Controllers
You’re looking at a solar charge controller here! This one’s made by Morningstar.
Solar charge controllers handle the power switching and charging of the battery via solar panels. The charge controller keeps a steady flow of power to the sensor hub and sensors.
The lights on the solar charge controller show you when solar power is charging the battery. The LED indicators also tell you how charged the battery is.
Essentially the unit runs on solar power and charges the backup battery (e.g., sealed lead acid battery / SLA) during the day. Then during the night or when it’s super cloud and there’s not much sun then the battery powers the Valarm unit.
Thanks to the solar charge controller all of your Industrial IoT sensors and sensor hubs stay healthy and alive! Then the other components in your Valarm boxes regularly send your remote monitoring and telemetry information to Tools.Valarm.net.
Note: This page is a detailed breakdown of 1 critical component in solar-powered, Valarm remote monitoring units.
