Product Upgrade Announcement PVGuard® Supervision Platform 1.8

skytron® energy is pleased to announce the release of version 1.8 of PVGuard®. The new version will be released on the night of Tuesday - Wednesday, 11 - 12 June 2013, and then will become automatically available to all PVGuard® customers.

New Features in Version 1.8

Apart from fixies, version 1.8 brings a number of improvements to the application:



Revision of the individual elements of the display, bringing a unified look and improved appearance

New symbols in the Plant Explorer and View Navigator: Distinctive icons to ease your use of the application.

- Improved layout of controls in the toolbars: The toolbar controls, for example in the time bar, have been rearranged and grouped for better visibility.

Uniform design for the predefined views

The PVGuard® views have been given a fresh modern look with uniform design and pastel shades: The components of the display can be distinguished at a glance and the colour scheme will, for example, avert alarms from becoming obscured.

- A new chart showing the energy output and the performance ratio over the current month in the predefined views, such as those for plant blocks and inverters: In addition to the display of the daily energy output, you can now see the overall performance of the entire power plant over the month to date.

Further integration of the service log

Display of open service log entries in the "All Plants (Small)" overview: A single click will open the corresponding service log.

- Service log entries for a device or data are available through the Plant Explorer context menu: The automatic filter helps you locate the entries associated with the corresponding components in the service log.

Additional features

- New automatic version-check: PVGuard® ensures that you are always using the latest version, so that you obtain the supervision platform’s full range of functionality.

- There is a new translation and localization for Japanese


We are excited about being able to bring you this upgrade, as part of our commitment to increasing the availability and profitability of your solar installations.
