Flexible configuration options for optimized communications

The Communit communication distributor integrates all the communication components and their copper or optical fiber wiring for large-scale PV plants. The Communit is flexible and can be configured for any plant or communications concept. The highest level of availability is guaranteed by a redundant electricity supply and the use of Ethernet ring topologies by the managed network switch. Disturbances can be quickly detected thanks to the remote monitoring, diagnosis and configuration features. The Communit’s robust enclosure can be used indoors and outdoors. The communications distributor can be mounted as a wall, base or mast unit, even in outdoor applications.
