Helioclim-1 automatic access

Last update: Feb. 2016

Particularly suited for monitoring applications. Several of our Customers use the HelioClim data as an alternative source of irradiation values. The machine-to-machine access to the data with the wget command is suited when you have to proceed to a large number of repetitive requests (same sites and same panel orientaion, but with different dates).

NB: Please note that your automatic access to HelioClim-3 also includes an automatic access to the HelioClim-1 database.

Since Jan. 2011, the SoDa Service has been duplicated.
