Collecting sensor data from distributed solar sites has never been easier
One supplier for your entire SCADA solution
If you want to monitor your solar PV assets, you have probably heard of SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) systems. The existing solutions are often sold as standard packages whereby custom systems are designed to meet large utility-scale customer specifications by integrating many different third-party components. These systems are high quality, but are costly due to the time investment and hardware costs required for effective deployment.
Skyfri SolarSCADA is the industry’s first fully integrated SCADA system specifically designed for solar PV asset monitoring. The hardware is developed in-house to simplify sensor install, calibration and maintenance for common instrumentation used in solar PV monitoring. This, combined with the industry-leading solar monitoring software Skyfri Intelligence, enables a full-turnkey data acquisition system installation without delays and expensive commissioning over-runs.

Monitoring distributed rooftop solar assets
When monitoring rooftop solar assets, one has previously chosen the systems that are built on legacy hardware choices which were never intended to support high resolution data or real-time controls interfacing, and in many cases lack the scalability required for modern larger grid interactive PV Installs. This approach to rooftop monitoring has come from the traditional requirements of small-scale rooftops.
SolarSCADA leverage the inherent repeatability of data points within a Solar PV site, and are designed as a commodity, low-cost hardware solution to implement standards that are common for all PV sites.
Our SCADA systems is delivered fully configured from our facility in Denver, CO, USA, with sensor calibration, point configuration, and alignment-care prior to shipping.
SolarSCADA was designed to meet the IEC-61724 photovoltaic system performance monitoring guidelines. All our sensors meet the required accuracy specifications and logging intervals, and system compliance depends on sensors selected during configuration.
SolarSCADA’s first system with our company was installed in 2020. The products allow the customer to quickly visualize relevant KPI’s that assist with site operations and reporting.
SolarSCADA’s platform continues to be an asset for our growing operation. By providing both on-site hardware and rapid commissioning support in addition to API data feeds and analytic capabilities through their analytic approach, the SolarSCADA approach to SCADA for PV sites has helped us grow rapidly while helping to keep costs under control.
Our company depends on high-quality solar monitoring data to run automated data analytics on system performance. In terms of data export features and data time resolution, the SolarSCADA platform matches or exceeds the capabilities of more expensive, established competitor products. SolarSCADA’s system modularity, unique approach to high-frequency data, and flexibility in rolling up data at different time intervals are unmatched by other commercially available platforms with which I am familiar.
Immediate data availability and file export
Save yourself hours of tedious calculations and use our solar monitoring software Skyfri Intelligence to know how your solar plants are performing. We know the different KPIs that owners and operators care about and we know how to calculate them all. If you want to do the calculations yourself, easily export the data using any type of request you want – OPC, DNP, Modbus, SQL, HTTP or Microsoft excel query.

We are simplifying large-scale solar monitoring. We’re cutting out the back-and-forth engineering drawing swaps, the confusing onsite installation and the unnecessarily long commissioning and testing. We provide easy Excel integration for your specific performance testing requirements. No more CSV file downloads with mismatching timestamps.
Our all-inclusive SolarSCADA system arrives onsite, ready to install: All brackets, instruments, and equipment are assembled at our facility and shipped to you complete. We can provide on-site communications via wireless data, fiber, serial, or any combination you may need. With SolarSCADA, you can see your data before you turn on your AC, with the use of our fully-standalone solar powered or 1500V PV Array powered options.
To provide the most rapid to install solar asset monitoring systems for all projects from from small commercial rooftops to fully IEC-61724 compliant ground mount systems for the lowest possible commissioning and installation cost.
Our competitors use systems based around a plethora of different vendor components, often requiring stick-building in the field under time duress at the end of projects. SolarSCADA ships its system assembled, tested, and ready to go. Our fully modular system includes the world’s first hardware specifically designed for integrating sensors specifically for photovoltaic generating assets as outlined by IEC-61724-1. Our hardware can interface with any sensor common to the Solar industry, including pyranometers, reference modules, thermocouples, RTDs, and metering of any kind with minimal in-field configuration. We can supply our standard sensor suite, or integrate sensors that you may need for your own obligations. We supply cellular comms, calibration certificates, setup, and all data point mapping.
