LORENTZ is well known as a quality designer and manufacturer of solar pumps. Through innovative electronic controlling, outstanding manufacturing quality and a simple design, Lorentz have managed to reduce the high cost of solar water pumping. Their submersible helical rotor pumps consist of only two parts, Lorentz's brushless motors are water filled and maintenance free, while the electronics are NOT inside the submerged motor but easily accessible on the surface.

The helical rotor solar pump can deliver up to 39,000 litres of water per day, and the centrifugal pump can deliver up to 137,000 litres of water per day. These pumps can lift water up to 240 metres, which is astounding for a solar pump.

Energy Matters provide simple DIY installation kits, plus pumps are virtually maintenance free and come with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty. Each solar pumping system includes Lorentz Submersible Solar Pump, Lorentz PS series controller, motor, plugs for connecting all components, low level switch, splice kit (ie. lugs and heat shrink), and a circuit breaker.

The PS series solar controller manages the pump system and monitors operating states. It is mounted on the surface with no electronic parts submerged. It has two control inputs for well probe (dry running protection), float or pressure switches, remote control, etc. The PS solar controllers also include speed control, integrated maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and battery operation.

The brushless DC motor contains no electronics, and the dynamic slide bearings are made out of carbon and ceramic. The wetted material of the motor is made of rubber and stainless steel and is drinking water approved!

The applications of the solar pump include: irrigation, water bores, pond management, drinking water supply, pond management, livestock watering, topping up tanks. Please contact Energy Matters for more information.

Darfon G320 Microinverter

Darfon G320 Microinverter

The Darfon G320 is the microinverter solution for today's high-power solar modules. The G320 handles 60- and 72-cell modules up to 350W DC and outputs up to 300W AC. The G320's 3-phase configuration accommodates the electrical distribution systems of most commercial buildings and to reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive transformers. The G320 comes in four voltage/phase configurations, so it can be installed in residential, commercial or utility applications.
