PPE count on Lufft weather sensors for PV Monitoring

For several years Lufft USA and Pacific Power Engineers (PPE) has collaborated successfully. The Lufft quality as well as the products’ and teams’ compatibility was the reason for PPE to standardize on Lufft’s weather sensor solutions. In the following you learn more about the applications…

Pacific Power Engineers, Inc. (PPE) was formed by experienced engineers from different branches and offers a range of services e.g. in project management. Together with Lufft USA we provide photovoltaic monitoring solutions.

For us, the values integrity and transparency are core values, and we have found these attributes in Lufft USA Inc. and their products in working with them over the years.  The value, performance, and ease of setup and installation makes choosing their products for use on our projects a no-brainer.

PPE standardized on Lufft’s weather sensors because of their seamless integration with our remote intelligent gateway (RIG) and Human Machine Interface (HMI) implementations, and the transparency that comes with their open communication protocols.  A Lufft all-in-one weather station, with the addition of one or two sensors, meets all CAISO requirements for most solar installations; when Lufft’s equipment is used with PPE’s HMI for site monitoring and control, it allows our customers to view and trend site data in real-time, as well as archive all relevant data points for future analysis of component and system performance.

The number of metrics measured by the Lufft’s weather stations in combination with the high accuracy of the sensors gives our customers the ability to forecast short-term and long-term generation capabilities of their site with a high degree of confidence so as to optimize scheduling and maximize their return on investment.
