EcoPhi boxes

EcoPhi boxes

In order to monitor and control both small and simple as well as large and complex plants smoothly, we have developed an intelligent box system. Four different boxes with different functions allow efficient monitoring from small plants to complex and large projects. All boxes are robust, easy to install and can be quickly configured on site using our software. This means that you can install and activate the boxes easily even with little technical knowledge. Once installed and set up, the boxes send directly to our cloud platform.

Simple plug-and-play installation

The boxes in detail

Our low-end solution makes it possible to monitor even small applications cost-effectively. It is ideal when data resolution and transmission frequency requirements are low. Up to 5 different sensors can be connected, which means that a wide range of applications can already be monitored. The Sensor Box is available in two versions. Either for Modbus communication or for analog/digital sensors.

The inverter or controller as the central unit of a solar plant or pump system already provides important data about the system. With the Inverter Box, this data can be easily transmitted and visualized. If required, another sensor can be connected to obtain additional information. The Inverter Box is installed very quickly and is able to read most inverters and controllers.

The Inverter Box Premium is the refinement of the Inverter Box and is used for larger or more complex systems. Different device types can be read out and up to three additional sensors can be connected. The box also allows simple logic operations on site and remote control of the systems if required.

The Premium Box is our top product. It is robust, failure-proof and smart. It controls devices on site and integrates a wide range of devices and additional sensors. The EcoPhi Premium Box is the perfect combination of quality, performance, flexibility and price. By selecting suitable sensors, actuators and individual logic circuits, almost all use cases in the fields of solar, water and agriculture can be covered.

Sensors and counters

We have put together a selection of sensors and meters that are compatible with all EcoPhi boxes and are specifically tailored to each solar, water and agricultural sector. The cables and connectors of the sensors and meters are pre-assembled so that they can be connected to the boxes with reverse polarity protection and plug-and-play. Yet, you are not bound to the EcoPhi sensors. If you want to use your own or additional sensors, these can be connected to the boxes as well.

Currently we have about 30 different sensors for different applications and system sizes in our portfolio. Our product catalog provides a comprehensive overview. Examples of sensors and meters for solar, water and agriculture from our portfolio:

  • Current and voltage sensors
  • Level sensors for groundwater monitoring
  • Irradiation sensors
  • Water meters
  • Soil moisture
  • And much more

For intelligent audits: The audit box

Often, solar systems are designed based on simple checklists or estimates. With the EcoPhi Audit Box, you can perform real-time energy audits easily and professionally. The data is sent to the EcoPhi platform immediately after connecting the Audit Box. The data can be accessed directly on the dashboard and is graphically visualized for direct analysis and evaluation. This gives you an immediate overview of the load profile and allows you, for example, to individually determine the length of the audits if required. Thanks to the integrated clamps in various sizes (200 A – 5000 A per phase), there is no need to intervene in the running system. This means that the EcoPhi Audit Box can also be installed by non-experts.

For your own system sizing calculations, the data can be exported in csv format or via API. If required, EcoPhi can also perform independent data-based sizing of systems.
