Mobile Software-Solution provides high level of quality for Maintenance, Inspection and Repair of PV-Systems
At the start of November ADLER Solar carried out an inspection for a 4,2 MWp Solarpark for their partner company, the PV-operater greentech. As an all-round service provider ADLER Solar takes great care to be at the forefront of technical development. Hence our PV-Experts and Service technicians are using the innovative software solution “TabTool PV” for the first time. The software is an innovative mobile solution developed by greentech and the software-vendor TabTool that is especially designed for the Maintenance, Inspection and Repair Management of PV-Parks. With TabTool PV specialists, for example Service technicians, have all the relevant data together at hand so that they can carry out their work on-site in an optimal way.The analyses, measurements and tests being carried out can be documented directly by the application, equally, appropriate recommendations and if necessary repairs, can also be carried out directly. The integrated camera of the tablet offers the possibility capture any faults and tests being carried out, and allows comments regarding faults to be noted on the images. Additionally the tool can be integrated into software solutions that are available. At present the software application is in the final test phase. With the help of ADLER Solar PV-Expert Cornelius Mogck the tool is being field-tested to establish in-use reliability and if there is potential for optimization. The PV-Park that ADLER Solar tested is a 4,2 MWp solarpark being operated by greentech. In preparation for the inspection our PV-Expert had an introduction regarding the display, function, and use of the new tool. According to his opinion its use during the inspection was “no problem at all”. Occasionally entries were still somewhat delayed. Overall the application is “user friendly and self-explanatory”. The tool could be used by more than one person at the same time, and the synchronization of all those involved allowed for a complete compilation of information.
As advantage Mr. Mogck emphasised the simple and quick access to all the required documents and plans, as well as the possibility of direct and precise labeling of requirements and the condition of objects on the plans. “With the help of the tools I can document all procedures and results as I’m used to, and in a very simple and practical way. Alone the final report is created by TabTool PV in direct attachment and in the expected quality”, stressed our PV-Expert. That the checklists for test already entered additionally simplified the process. “The application came across as very practical during the inspection, even when there is the requirement for optimization. Fundamentally the tool offers many advantages for our work and defiantly has potential” so concluded our PV-Expert Cornelius Mogck.
The experience and suggestions of our experts will be considered in the continuing development process of the tools from greentech and TabTool. „We are very happy that we could try out the TabTool in a field test together with ADLER Solar. The expected advantages regarding Preparation, Implementation and Documentation of the system inspection have been fully confirmed. Through the integrated tracking of time lines and status of the recorded faults, we assure noticeable time savings and a high degree of transparency in addition to the inspection” noted Ingo Rehmann, Managing Director of greentech. “Through long-term use of the TabTool we receive a complete and high value system-history down to component level. This allows fast and efficient detection from systematic and individual failures and improves the system performance for the customer”. We will inform you in our newsletter as soon as the final version of TabTool PV is available on the market.

5. ADLER Solar – Insurance Day
Following our last information day for insurers at our subsidiary company BEC Solar in Anzing close to Munich, the ‘Insurance Day’ took place at the ADLER Solar head office in Bremen for the fifth time. Around 30 representatives from various insurance companies attended and were informed about the diverse product portfolio from ADLER Solar and their subsidiary company BEC Solar. With the help of case studies the effective and transparent damage management was demonstrated. These solutions help insurers in damages cases to reduce processing expenditure and to offer the policy holder quick and unproblematic claim settlements. As a example from the field, test methods and analysis techniques for hail stone damage were presented by ADLER Solar consultants and engineers. The increasing number of theft of PV-Modules is naturally also a large problem for insurers, and so the introduction of the intelligent theft protection by our partner viamon was of great interest.
In the coming year ADLER Solar will again host the information day for insurers in Bremen and Munich. If you are interested please contact:
