Solar Powered Data Loggers

Solar Powered Data Logger An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate data loggers in locations where a traditional 120VAC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money powering data logging equipment in remote locations.

Solar Powered data loggers vary between types for a range of measurement applications to very specific devices for measuring on parameter or application type only. Solar powered data loggers have replaced chart recorder in many industrial and scientific applications. One of the primary benefits of using solar powered data loggers is the ability to automatically collect data on a 24-hour basis in remote areas. Solar powered data loggers are typically deployed and left unattended to measure and record information for the duration of the monitoring period. This allows for a comprehensive, accurate picture of the conditions being monitored, such as temperature and relative humidity.

Solar Powered Data Logger System

A solar power system for data logger applications consists of a solar module, a solar charge controller, a rechargeable solar deep-cycle battery, power converter, regulator or inverter and a weather-proof outdoor enclosure. This system is used to collect solar energy and the store electrical power, and then convert the stored power into the correct voltage to operate the data logger.

What Size Solar Power System For Data Loggers?

Solar Data Logging To select the correct size solar power system to power a Data Logger there are a few things that must be known.

1. What is operating voltage and power consumption in amps, or watts of the Data Logger?

2. How many hours each day will the Data Logger be required to operate.

3. What is the geographical location the solar powered Data Logger will be installed.

4. How many days of battery reserve power are desired for "no sun" days?
