Asoka Corporation unveils world\'s first solution to use in-home power lines for data logging

Asoka Corporation, a developer of powerline networking
(PLN) technology, launched the first residential solar solution to use existing
in-home electrical wiring for system data logging and remote monitoring.

The SolarLink PLC adapter directly connects the solar
power system’s inverter and data logger to the residence’s home area network
internet service through the electrical wiring to upload data to the solar
service provider.

This solution eliminates the need for complex cable
installations and is more robust than unreliable wireless systems. This
solution also provides flexibility in installation options reducing
installation costs and customer inconvenience.

With the use of SolarLink providers can remotely monitor
system performance over the Internet and diagnose maintenance issues without
on-site visits. It also gives third party solar monitoring services a way to
provide data so customers can see how much power their system has produced, how
much of that they have used and how much has been sold back to their utility.

“Our PLC technology and simple-to-install hardware
provide solutions that cut time and costs for installers by utilizing the most
ubiquitous network in the home — residential electric wiring,” said Eric Grubel,
CEO of Asoka.
