the HUB in general


The HUB is an online portal used to monitor, configure and control your SolarGatewaySE devices. Each SolarGatewaySE can be connected to a single namespace, where a namespace can hold multiple SolarGatewaySE devices. The namespace can be shared with multiple users, where each user has there own privileges.

Extra licenses are always bought for a single device, regardless of the number of devices in the namespace.


Maintenance banner

The best possible experience on the HUB Portal is aimed to be provided by Embion. To achieve this, periodic maintenance will be required to ensure the platform’s smooth functioning and reliability.

Scheduled maintenance will be conducted to implement updates, security enhancements, and necessary improvements. The maintenance banner will be prominently displayed days before the maintenance period to provide advance notice to users, serving as a notification that maintenance is scheduled to take place.

During these scheduled maintenance periods, the HUB may experience periods of being offline or running slower than usual. This is a normal part of the maintenance process, as certain features or services may need to be temporarily taken offline or optimized to ensure the smooth functioning and reliability of the platform.

The importance of keeping users informed about any temporary changes that may impact their portal experience is understood. Embion apologizes for any inconvenience caused during this time.

A namespace is basicly a group of users, where each user has there own permissions based on their role inside the namespace. Multiple SolarGatewaySE devices can be connected to a namespace and the device data can be monitored on dashboards which can be created or read by the users with correct permissions. This way a namespace can be created and managed by a company who invites their customers to their namespace and provide roles based on their preferences.

When a user who does not have access to any namespace logs in, they will be prompted to create a new namespace. Additionally, a namespace can be created by clicking on the “Create Namespace” button located in the top right corner of the user menu.

New user landingspage

Create a namespace

When a user without access to any namespace is logged in, it will be prompted to create a new namespace. Also, a namespace can be created by clicking on the “create namespace” button in the top right corner user menu.

Create namespace form

During the process of creating a namespace, you have the freedom to choose a name for the namespace. It is advised to select a distinguishable name that helps to differentiate it from other namespaces. You are free to use any name of your choice.

Additionally, you have the option to select a symbol and color to enhance the visibility and divisibility of the namespace. This allows you to customize the appearance of the namespace according to your preferences.

If required, the namespace can be made public. By checking the “public namespace” checkbox the namespace becomes visible for all HUB users. All HUB users can see the namespace and request access to the namespace. The namespace administrator should still accept the requests.

When the namespace is created the current users becomes namespace administrator of the namespace. The administrator can invite, accept and create new administrators within the namespace. Each namespace should have at least one administrator.

Join a namespace

When a namespace is public, it is possible to join. An administrator of the joined namespace has to approve your request. When a namespace isn’t public, another user with the correct permissions has to invite people to let them join.

Join a namespace

These options provide users with flexibility and control over the management of their devices registered within the namespace.

Access tokens

Multiple access tokens can be created for each device, granting access to the public API. These tokens enable interaction with the public API and remotely read or control the plant connected to the device. By default, a total of 250 API calls per day are permitted for each device, and these calls can be distributed among the multiple tokens associated with the device.

When generating an access token, you have the option to specify a maximum number of requests allowed for that particular token. This feature allows you to set a limit on the number of API requests that can be made using the token. If you prefer the token to have no request limit (always limited to the maximum of 250 calls per device), you can leave the maximum requests value as 0.

Managing access tokens and their corresponding request limits gives you the flexibility to control API usage and optimize resource allocation for each device effectively.

List of access tokens

The list of tokens shows all the currently availible access tokens, and allows the user to create a new one by pressing the “Generate token” button. Per token the expiration date can be selected, and the uid’s (meters and inverter) to which the token has read access can be selected.


Additional licenses are available to increase the maximum number of API requests per day per device beyond the default limit. For more information about licensing options and pricing, please contact sales. They will assist you in selecting the suitable license to meet your specific needs.

Add tokens

To add a new access token, users are required to provide the following inputs:

Token name: Users should enter a descriptive name for the access token to easily identify its purpose or the associated device.

Expire date: (Optional): Users can specify the expiration date for the access token. Once the expiration date is reached, the token will no longer be valid.

Enable control access (Optional): Users have the option to enable control access for the token.

Safe state reset (Optional): Users should indicate whether the access token should allow or disallow a safe state reset.

UID access: Users can select specific UIDs (like meters and inverters) which can be accessed by the token.

Request limit: Users have the ability to set a limit on the number of requests that can be made using the access token. By specifying a numerical value, users can control the maximum number of requests. Setting the limit to 0 will remove the limit. Keep in mind that by default the total number of request per device is 250 requests per day.

By providing these necessary inputs, users can successfully add a new access token with custom settings and access permissions for their devices.

Users can add pricing schemes to use them across multiple devices in their namespace. A list of pricing schemes will be displayed with their selected bidding zone and provider margin.

Pricing schemes

Add or edit pricing schemes

To configure an pricing scheme, the following inputs are required:

Name: this name will be displayed when selecting pricing schemes on devices.

Color: is optional for recognizability when configuring multiple schemes.

Variant: the variant of pricing scheme, for now only EPEX is available.

Bidding zone: bidding zone of the country/countries users want to use.

Energy provider margin: the amount of margin based on your energy provider.


When editing pricing schemes that are already being used by devices, it will affect the devices as well.

Add pricing scheme

Edit pricing scheme


Users can configure their devices with pricing schemes and set control rules to them. A list of devices in the users namespace is shown with their current active scheme and amount of control rules.


Device settings

Users are able to assign multiple pricing schemes to their device that will be used based on the date that is set. A list of the pricing schemes will be shown, sorted on date. If plant control is enabled on the to be configured device, users can set control rules to their device and manage them by dragging them or use of up/down arrows.


Plant control needs to be enabled on the device to set control rules.

Update device settings

Plant control disabled

Add or edit pricing scheme

To assign a pricing scheme to the selected device, the following inputs are required:

Pricing scheme: select one of configured pricing schemes.

Start date: start date of when pricing scheme needs to be used.

End date: end date of the pricing scheme (when empty no end date is set).

Add pricing scheme

Edit pricing scheme

Add or edit control rules

When plant control is enabled on the selected device, users can set control rules to their device. The following inputs are required:

If inputs:

Property: the property of the control rule.

Operator: the operator to of the control rule.

Value: the property value.

Then inputs:

Command: the command that the control rule will trigger.

Value: the value for the command of the control rule.

Operators explanation

== equals to.

> greater than.

>= greater than or equals to.

< less than.

<= less than or equal to.

!= not equal to.

Further explanation for control generation and consumption

  • The control_generation and control_consumption items can be used to control plant generation and consumption independently of the plant configuration.

  • Setting control_generation to min reduces the power generation to the minimum, resulting in solar power converters to shutdown and wind turbines to stop.

  • Setting control_generation to nom allows generation of solar and wind to operate normally.

  • Setting control_generation to max allows the start of any extra generators (if available at plant).

  • Setting control_consumption to min reduces the controlable loads like heatpumps and EV-chargers to minimum consumption.

  • Setting control_consumption to nom enables normal controlable loads to operate within the plant limits.

  • Setting control_consumption to max increases the power for controlable loads to maximum. EV-chargers will increase charging power to maximum (within plant limits) and heatpumps will increase or decrease setpoint to increase power consumption.


Actions triggered by the energy price will overwrite any existing plant control actions. All triggered actions have a valid time of 1hour. Sending a new plant control action will counteract the action done by the energy price.

Control rules simulator

The control rule simulator can be used to simulate how the plant reacts on the provided price. This way users can check if there control rules are set well.

Combined views

Combined views can be reached by clicking the symbol on the left side menu or on the buttons on the homepage. Users can use this application to get an overview of all their namespaces and the devices in a single table.


Users need the right role and read permissions for the information displayed in the combined view, otherwise it will not be shown. This can be enabled by enabling Combined views permission for the role of choice.

Combined views application


In the combine view for devices user can view details about devices in their joined namespaces. The user needs the role with correct permissions within the namespace to see the device in this overview, otherwise it won’t be displayed.

Devices combined view

The following details can be read from the devices:

  • Online / offline status
  • Name of the device
  • Namespace where the device is registered in
  • Actual plant power
  • Actual grid power
  • Run status amount
  • Amount of warnings
  • Amount of errors
  • Plant control status
  • Status message
  • Device software status
  • Serial number of the device
  • Product number of the device
  • Date of last data call
  • Date of last status call

Arrange and filter options

Users can arrange the columns of the table by dragging the top of the column to the left of right. It is also possible to select which columns should be displayed in the view, this can be done by opening the filter on the top right side of the columns.
