Solution Components

Headend Application

KALKI.IO DER Head end provides remote monitoring and management of DER generation plants and its associated components by securely connecting with inverters, weather stations, irradiance sensors, revenue meters and batteries as required for the deployment. DER Head end can also be used to deploy applications for predictive maintenance, degradation monitoring, inventory management and generation forecasting which would help to optimize the ROI.

DER Gateway Software

Kalki.io Edge (KIOE) earlier known as SyncConnect edge gateway software has ready-made templates to connect with common inverters available in the market and also support standard protocols such as IEEE2030.5, SunSpec Modbus, IEC61850-90-7 which helps the user to integrate inverters, string combiners, weather sensors from different vendors seamlessly. It also supports commonly used utility protocols like IEC 60870, DNP3.0, DLMS-COSEM to connect with the grid operators. KIOE enables secure connectivity with each device remotely for configuration and maintenance purposes. KIOE runs in any standard Linux OS based hardware/ Virtual Machines/ Containers.

DER Gateway Hardware

SYNC2310 series gateways are SunSpec Certified IEEE 2030.5 Gateway hardware. DER gateway is used to interconnect Distributed Energy Resource (DER) site with utility headend system, and DER Aggregators over IEEE 2030.5, DNP3 or IEC 104. Gateways can communicate with the DER devices on site e.g., smart inverter or Energy Management System (EMS) using any of the communication interfaces defined in IEEE 1547-2018 (Modbus, DNP3 and IEEE 2030.5).

Embedded Modules

SYNC 200 series would be suitable for device or equipment manufacture who want to add build in features for standard protocol connectivity or edge computing capability with in the inverters. It’s a series are system on modules (SOM) which can be directly plugged inside inverters or string combiners in the field and enable it to communicate on standard protocols like IEEE2030.5, sunspec modbus, IEC61850, IEEE15815.
