Place n´Plug description
Easy transportation and installation
Place n’ Plug is delivered as a 2.0Xx1.4X1.7 meter, 1 tone, easily handled, all weather container. It has incorporated everything required for its operation, including 2 kWp photovoltaic panels. The PV panels are retracted to minimize volume for transportation. When placed at the operation site they are extended in a few minutes. Operation starts immediately. All tests and adjustments have been completed at the factory.
System control and management
Although the Place n’ Plug is a fully automatic stand-alone system, it is continuously monitored through a sophisticated Telemonitoring and Telecontrol system. This feature offers the possibility to have always a complete real-time image of the system. All data is saved in a database and can be retrieved easily in history mode in case you want to see what has happened at any moment in the past. The data collected by the Control and Management System is compared to previous historical data values, in order to help us foresee and so to prevent damages before they occur. An Extra Benefit for the owner of the Place n’ Plug is that he can also monitor and control, through the Telemonitoring and Telecontrol facility, the rest of the installation equipment, beyond the Place n’ Plug itself.
Modular and expandable
If more power is required, one or more similar units can be simply added to form a mini grid. Optionally they may be connected in parallel or can form a three phase system.
Place n´Plug diesel
An optional unit is available with a backup diesel generator and a 1000 Lt oil tank. It has the same size with the main units and has also 2 kWp photovoltaic panels on top. It is interconnected with the system and will run automatically in cases of energy shortages.
