Locus Energy LGate 101E.
Revenue-grade energy meter and web-enabled datalogger for monitoring residential solar photovoltaic systems. It is designed to collect, store and upload a wide array of energy data allowing both system installers and owners to efficiently manage solar assets. The LGate 101E can monitor nearly any type of solar energy system. Regardless of inverter or panel type, it can measure energy production with a 0.5% degree of accuracy. As a datalogger, it has a variety of digital and analog inputs enabling direct communication with third-party devices such as inverters and meteorological sensors. Performance data is aggregated and uploaded automatically to the Solar-OS™ and SolarNOC™ platforms, which provide custom tools and analytics to all project stakeholders.

Data Collection:
The LGate 101E uses a hard-wired voltage reference and a current transducer (CT) to measure power. There are inputs for up to three CTs, allowing the LGate to measure both solar energy generation and the energy consumption of the building. It can also gather data from up to 16 third-party devices, which is collected via RS485 protocol. All data feeds are stored in non-volatile memory and then uploaded with unique identifiers to provide maximum flexibility as to how the data is presented on the Solar-OS and SolarNOC platforms.

Network Connectivity:
The LGate 101E is a plug-and-play device that supports both Local Area Network (LAN) and cellular network options. For LAN-based installations, a hard-wired Ethernet cable is the preferred connection method, but if this is unavailable, the LGate 101E features a built in 110V outlet for easy installation of an Ethernet-over-Powerline adapter.

Data is transmitted only in outbound sessions over open ports, requiring no additional network or firewall configuration. The connection and commissioning process is further simplified by the LED lights, which indicate communication status without installers having to log in
