Solar Pumping with Lorentz submersible pumps


Many companies are trying to improve their image by using renewable energy. A solar pumping solution is a public and practical use of renewable energy.

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.

Kipp & Zonen - Smart SMP Pyranometers

Equipped with an extremely low power, smart interface the Smart SMP pyranometers offer industry standard digital and amplified analog outputs within the well-known CMP series housings. The output range is programmed so that all SMP pyranometers have identical sensitivities, allowing easy installation and exchange for recalibration. Serial communication allows access to measurement data, instrument status, operating parameters and calibration history. Building on the proven CMP Series design and technology that is used around the world, the new SMP pyranometers add digital signal processing and interfaces optimised for industrial data acquisition and control systems.
