Meet Radiocrafts at Intersolar Europe 2024 in Munich, Germany

Learn more about how Radiocrafts is enabling the green transition! Meet us on the 19th – 21st of June 2024 at the Intersolar Europe 2024 Exhibition in Munich, Germany!

Come visit Radiocrafts at the Norwegian Pavilion, booth number A4.350, where we will be showcasing our latest Solar Development Kit for our low latency, long range, Sub-GHz mesh solution, RIIM, optimised for Solar installations.

The Solar Development Kit from Radiocrafts contains:
  • 4 Development Boards with RIIM Mesh modules
    • 1 Mesh Router – Gateway connected to the controller
    • 3 Mesh Routers – Devices in the field. Ex: solar trackers, inverters, DC combiners
  • 4 AA battery holders
  • 4 antennas
  • 1 USB Cable

One board is connected to the PC and the other 3 boards are placed in the testing area. In addition, to show case the low power consumption of the RIIM technology, all 4 boards are powered by 2 AA batteries.

After powering the boards, you will run a premade python script on the PC to start-up the mesh network. The PC will show you how the devices are connected, the signal strength, and the uplink and downlink latency when communicating with the controller.

Each of the mesh routers are capable of forwarding data packets between devices up to the controller while at the same time controlling locally connected solar trackers or monitoring inverters and DC combiners.

Stop by our booth for a live demo! 

What makes RIIM a good solution for Solar installations?

  • Highly Scalable – Cover an entire utility-scale solar facility as large as 40x40km squared (25×25 mi squared) or a campus/series of buildings as long as 5.6km with up to 1000 devices on a single gateway.
  • Unmatched reliability in data transmission success rates – RIIM supports various features that enable a data packet success rate of 99.99%. This is essential for solar networks located in campuses, facilities, and building complexes made of reinforced concrete and where high levels of interference from other radio solutions are present.
  • Network partitioning and simplified commissioning for quick rollouts and simple scaling – RIIM is a mesh network which means it is self-forming, self-healing, and self-optimizing. It is a plug-and-play process that simplifies your solar network deployment greatly.
  • Long Range – RIIM supports a communication range of 700 meters between devices in an open area and 150 meters inside a building with reinforced concrete. In addition, a RIIM data packet can also spread across the network by hopping from device to device up to 28 times. Long range with the possibility to have up to 1000 devices in a single network creates flexibility in terms of gateway placements (including indoors), reduces the cost of installation, and simplifies radio coverage planning. Only a single gateway is needed to support a large-scale deployment in a utility-scale solar facility, campus, or series of building complexes.
  • High Data Throughput – For applications requiring higher data throughput like inverter monitoring, RIIM supports a 150 kbps mode. In addition, RIIM supports Adaptive Frequency Agility and Listen-Before-Talk features which together allow you to exceed the 1% duty cycle limitation in Europe to 37%. This means you can send send 37% times more data than technologies that do not support these features.
  • And much more!
