Pittsford-based Solar Sentry Corp. has been issued a patent for its eSmart solar energy monitoring system, company officials announced this week.
The system collects monitoring and diagnostic information from photovoltaic panels in a solar electric power site, using embedded electronics in each panel and a wireless mesh network, officials said.
The patent was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday.
“We cannot overstate the significance of our patent protection, as we believe it puts us in a position to uniquely provide these valuable capabilities in the protected markets,” co-founder and CEO Gordon Presher said in a statement.
Founded in 2005, Solar Sentry has similar monitoring patents pending in Europe, Japan and Canada, company officials said.
