The Locus Energy LGate 101 is a 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 101 can monitor nearly any type of solar energy system. Regardless of inverter or panel type, it can measure energy production with a high 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 Locus Energy Smart Monitoring website which provides custom tools and analytics to all project stakeholders.

PARTS LIST - Product Features
  • For use with a solar energy system - Qualifies for PV solar tax credits and rebates
  • DATA COLLECTION - The LGate uses a hard-wired voltage reference and current transformers (CTs) to measure power. There are inputs for up to three CTs allowing the LGate to measure both solar energy generation and whole-house electrical consumption. It can also gather data from up to 16 third-party devices simultaneously which is collected via RS485 and Modbus RTU protocols. 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 online.
  • NETWORK CONNECTIVITY - The LGate 101 is a plug and play device supporting a multitude of connectivity options. It can communicate over Ethernet, powerline carrier (PLC), or cellular networks. Hard-wired Ethernet is the preferred connection method, but if this is unavailable, the LGate features a built in 110V outlet for easy installation of a PLC 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 LGate’s LED lights which indicate communication status without installers having to log in or call home.
  • APPLICATIONS - Revenue grade PV metering, load metering, and inverter direct communication. Combined ANSI C12.20 certified energy meter, datalogger and gateway.

Went the extra mile with tech support February 7, 2013
Reviewer: Kenneth M from Escondido, CA  
Had a 6kW SMA sunny boy system installed a year ago, and wanted to add a monitoring package to keep track of performance. Doing a little research, it seemed like the Locus system was the right one. Once I installed the unit, it turned out that getting it activated was a challenge with manufacturer. FreeCleanSolar stayed on the case until everyting was working.
