The SolComm Board is a PicoCell daughterboard that is ideally suited for applications that require remote monitoring and control of pumping systems.


The SolComm Board integrates seamlessly with the PicoCell and enables IoT capabilities like remote system control, and remote system monitoring. When combined with the SolSense Board, the SolComm Board enables the operation of external sensors of the customer’s choosing such as wind speed, or flow rate sensors.

The sensor outputs, and control capabilities, can be accessed through the internet using our SolComm Portal platform. The SolComm Portal allows for access and control using a standard browser on either a desktop computer or smartphone device. Through the SolComm Portal, a deeper understanding of your system’s operation can be gained by observing long term trends that can give insights to optimize system performance.
