Private and public organizations in the renewable energy sector around the world have been involved in intensive research to drive up the efficiency of solar panels. In the past 30 years, we have seen firms come up with several innovations that have gradually boosted the efficiency of solar panels. Organizations have been developing new technologies based on novel solar cell architectural designs and innovating materials that provide more efficient energy conversion. These efforts have reduced the price of solar power significantly. In 1977, the cost of solar panels was US$76.67/watt and today, it is just US$0.613/watt.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
