NRG Systems recently announced the release of NRG Cloud Version 2022.3. This marks the third major release of 2022, and carries with it a host of new features and capabilities on the web platform, including:
- ZX 300 and ZX 300M Lidar integration (learn more in this video)
- Data logger redeployment and multiple site data loggers
- Updated wind rose plots
- Site enhancements and bug fixes
These updates are explored in greater detail below.
ZX 300 and ZX 300M Lidar Integration
NRG Cloud sites for ZX 300 Wind Lidars can now be added. NRG Systems worked closely with our colleagues at ZX Lidars to create the best possible experience for ZX 300 users. The Site Summary page for ZX 300 includes plots for:
- Wind speed and direction
- Vertical wind speed
- Wind rose
- Met sensor readings
Timeline features, events, and data import/export features are supported as well.
Data Logger Redeployment and Multiple Site Data Loggers
SymphoniePRO Data Loggers and ZX 300 Wind Lidars (which we will refer to as data loggers in this instance) may now be used across multiple NRG Cloud sites. Previously, data loggers could only be associated with a single NRG Cloud site. The loggers and lidars in existing sites should be updated with start and end dates through the Timeline view, then new sites can be created in NRG Cloud with data files outside the existing dates.
NRG Cloud now supports scenarios where loggers are changed at a site. When a data logger must be swapped out due to something like a lightning strike, or when a ZX 300 is cycled out for scheduled maintenance, the replacement logger may be added via the Site Configuration page in NRG Cloud. This helps ensure a smooth transition and in turn more consistent data collection while you are navigating changes to your fielded equipment.
Updated Wind Rose Plots
Site Summary wind rose plots for wind sites now follow the standard of other NRG software projects. These new plots provide an improved overview of site wind conditions as well as additional data filters: height and wind speed bin.
Site Enhancements and Bug Fixes
There are several adjustments and bug fixes that are included in this release. Many changes were requested by our fantastic user base (thank you!) such as:
- Allow users to change email addresses
- Cycle API client secrets
- Move Data Management features to pop-up screens
- Better tooltip text
What is Next?
Our development team is already hard at work on the next release.
