CB-100 PLC Box

Model Number: CB-100
For communication reliability, Darfon Cloud-based monitoring solution separates the communication before it reaches the service panel. The solution includes two hardware pieces: the PLC Box and Data Logger. The PLC Box is installed between the microinverters and service panel then sends information to the Data Logger. By bypassing the service panel, you avoid all the white noise and get a clean, stable signal. This latest generation of Data Logger incorporates WAN and GSM transmission for connecting to the Cloud.
