Enphase Energy Adds Cellular Ability To Microinverter Systems For Consistent Association
The Cellmodem-M1, Enphase Energy’s latest introduction, is now available in the markets. Enphase customers will now stay connected to their systems remotely without needing a dedicated local network. Based on the LTE Cat-M1 standards, Cellmodem-M1 helps applications targeting machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and Internet of Things (IoT).
The Cellmodem-M1, being a part of the Enphase Mobile Connect family, uses LP-WAN (Low-Power Wide-Area Network) Technology to transmit energy data from the Enphase Envoy communications gateway over extensive ranges at very low power. After connecting to the IQ Envoy or Envoy-S, the Cellmodem-M1 terminates the need for an on-site Internet connection to monitor Enphase Microinverter systems.
The new gadget enables Plug-and-Play IoT connectivity to the service platform for solar systems with up to 60 Enphase microinverter systems and Enphase Enlighten monitoring systems. AT&T offers a 5-year prepaid data plan and 5-year Warranty with the Enphase Cellmodem-M1 device.
The new IoT cell modem from Enphase will help companies offer next-level customer service. Since customers will have information about their solar systems, they can report the problems/glitches to the customer support team for resolving issues quickly. With high-fidelity energy monitoring of Enphase microinverter systems, the event remarks a significant change in the access of advanced IoT applications.
System owners and installation professionals – both will benefit from monitoring, especially to maintain and support the solar systems. Solar professionals will find Enphase Mobile Connect suited for installation flexibility and system monitoring even without on-site Internet connectivity. Enphase, the world’s leading supplier of solar microinverters, offers the Cellmodem-M1 with the pre-configuration for data service. This new device will activate only after connecting the Envoy communications gateway.
