Array Technologies has launched it next generation DuraTrack HZ v3 solar tracking system for utility-scale power plants. DuraTrack HZ v3 offers unique features such as a single-bolt per module clamp and zero scheduled maintenance. This new version is designed to deliver a variety of efficiencies allowing faster installation times, elimination of scheduled maintenance costs and maximizes power plant up-time to deliver optimum LCOE (Levelized Cost of Electricity).
Solar Data Systems, a subsidiary of Solare Datensysteme GmbH has launched its ‘Solar-Log 370’ that has been specifically designed for the US market to provide advanced residential solar PV monitoring with power management. The Solar-Log 370 combines the ‘Solar-Log’ monitoring technology into GE's 1-210+ residential revenue grade meter.
Ecoprogetti has launched its latest innovative sun simulator with LED technology in A+A+A+ Class certified and verified by TÜV. The newest levels in A+A+A+ of uniformity, stability and repeatability are the most advanced available in the market, according to the company. Ecosun Plus is the solution for precise and reliable I-V Curve tests of both standard PV modules and mainly for testing all new high efficiency cells technology in PV modules.
PV Nano Cell has commercially developed ‘Sicrys’, a single-crystal, nanometric silver conductive ink delivering enhanced performance for digital conductive printing in mass production applications. The inks are also available in copper-based form, delivering all of the product’s properties and advantages with improved cost efficiency.
SENTECH Instruments has designed the SENperc PV for the measurement of Al2O3/SiNx layer stacks and single films for the passivation of PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) solar cells. The stability of the deposition process is monitored over the long-term thereby the maintenance intervals of the deposition tools can be optimized.
Canadian Solar has introduced a new suite of 1500V system voltage monocrystalline and multicrystalline solar modules in 60-cell and 72-cell configurations as well as a T4 field-installable PV connector portfolio for commercial and utility-scale PV power plants. The products were launched at Intersolar North America 2016.
