Quad Energy introduces new LED lighting for conventional and solar applications

Quad Energy has added two new LED based products to their line for 2008. They are also going to produce their new controller which utilizes a new operating system called "Whitefoot".

The Whitefoot OS was the culmination of 2 years work by Quad Energy to produce a smart solar controller which has a remotely-programmable real time clock (RTC) that allows several programmable timed events to take place within the controller. The device is also networked with other controllers through Zigbee ( 802.15 ), which allows all controllers on the network to communicate to a central control point. This allows the device to be used for monitoring remote alarms, lighting systems, and irrigation systems. Alarms are reported automatically by sending an Email to the user notifying them of an alarm. Since the whole system can be run with solar power, it can be used to monitor and control structures or buildings that do not have conventional grid power, such as warehouse buildings, barns etc. It can also be used to run solar lighting within those structures as well.


Our new line of LED lights will be an excellent complement to the controller. The outdoor LED lights are currently available in a 12-30vdc 3 and 6W version and conventional 120 - 260vac 3, 6 and 10W versions for US/European conventional grid power use. There are also plans to produce larger lighting systems for parking lots and street lighting.

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.
