Remote power monitoring server
Because L'Monte is located in rugged mountain terrain, the best solar site was
almost 200 meters from most of the actual electric loads. In order to
continuously monitor critical electric power values, we designed and built a
remote monitoring system based on Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM)
technology. The laptop in the center of the picture below receives
voltage, current and battery bank charge level information, via an RS-232
connection, from nearby monitoring instruments.
