PVmet-500-M3 Weather Station:

The PVmet-500-M3 station is a unique modular platform to configure the most comprehensive weather station compatible with IEC 61724 standard requirements for PV monitoring. Multiple high-end pyranometers and weather sensors can be combined as a turnkey solution for PV monitoring applications. This low-cost station is compact and simple to install and to connect to any inverter or SCADA system. PVmet is an innovative sensor platform for PV monitoring applications, which is developed by Rainwise Inc. and provided by EKO. PVmet-500-M3 weather station comprises a powerful electronic interface to connect all sensors and convert the output to a Modbus data string (RS-485 Modbus interface – Sunspec® certified).

The PVmet-500-M3 is a unique weather station based on the modular PVmet-500 platform plus a CV7-V Precision Ultrasonic Wind Sensor.
The CV7 has no moving parts, requires no maintenance or routine calibration and delivers high-accuracy wind measurements with low power consumption.

Standard measurement parameters are PV back-panel temperature,  Relative humidity,  Barometric pressure,  Ambient temperature,  Wind speed, and direction (Ultrasonic) Optional parameters are irradiance (POA, GHI), precipitation, and additional back-panel temperature). EKO offers 5 different pre-configured PVmet-500 systems.

PVmet series are turn-key, easy to install, and can be deployed under harsh environmental conditions. EKO provides a unique radiometer calibration compliant with the international standards defined by ISO/IEC17025/9847. Various mounting options are available, including the Mono Mount. The PVmet is supplied with a detachable mast section that can be bolted to an existing structure.

All electrical connections are made using screw terminals. Standard sensors are factory installed. As a user/installer the only connections required are power and communication peripherals to connect the weather station.
