Solar Panel Data Logging:

Welcome to dotC

SunnyShine Solar Plant Project

SunnyShine is a solar plant logging system, based on a linux Fox Board box. This box communicates with the solar inverter by means of serial RS485 communication. This box serves also as a webserver to read out the data.

The purpose of this project was to develop a low cost monitoring system, to read out the most important data from our solar plant at home. The data should be stored in a SQLite database, and accessible via a webinterface. Also, some diagnostics data should be made visible.

Having a wireless lan at home, made it also interesting to have an interface on the Pronto Professional remote.
