APsystems expands EMA system monitoring & alert capabilities
New features provide comprehensive visibility and enhanced remote troubleshooting

APsystems proudly announces new system monitoring alert capabilities within its online EMA portal. The new alerts will improve communication regarding any production and communication issues with an enhanced email alert protocol, giving installers and homeowners further insight into any potential issues affecting their systems.
 
While the APsystems EMA has always provided system production reports and alerts, the new alerts will be more targeted, more frequent and more informative.
 
  1. System alerts will notify an installer if one of their installed systems has an inverter that ceases producing energy.
 
  1. Registration alerts are issued in the case of inaccurate or incomplete system registration.
 
  1. Communication interrupt alerts will notify installers in cases where their ECU gateway ceases communicating properly with the EMA online monitoring system which could indicate an interruption of communication between inverters, ECU and/or EMA; or simply a local internet, ISP or router issue.
 
  1. Production alerts will notify installers of unusually low power production at the individual inverter level, giving them an opportunity to check status online and verify proper operation.

 
These alerts offer installers a more refined tool for notification and troubleshooting of potential system issues. As with any apparent issue, APsystems always recommends contacting our technical support team if you suspect a problem. Most issues can be r
eviewed and resolved online and without a trunk roll.
 
Changes made to the EMA are seamless and will be automatically available to all new registered systems and over 31,000 existing APsystems installations worldwide.

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT:
Sylvan Star Cheese Factory
Canadian cheese maker Sylvan Star's gouda has a secret ingredient: the sun.

The Red Deer, Alberta's plant is powered by a massive solar array featuring APsystems YC1000 true 3-phase microinverters. The owners worked with local installer CarbonBite Innovations and National Solar Distributors of Edmonton toward achieving a 100-percent solar, net-zero installation. The 460-module, 122kW array was commissioned in 2016 and now powers the processing of popular and award-winning cheeses for the dairy operation.
