aleo solar today announced that it has received MCS certification for its poly- and monocrystalline solar modules. This ensures that operators of solar power plants with aleo modules will be able to benefit from UK feed-in subsidies. Certification is granted by the British Approvals Board for Telecommunications (BABT), working in partnership with TV Sd.

The certificate confirms compliance with the "Microgeneration Certification Scheme" (MCS) and the high quality of the module production at aleo solar's facilities. A producer of solar modules at its main Prenzlau plant since 2002, the company is one of Europe's largest and most experienced module manufacturers. Certification covers aleo modules S_16, S_17, S_18, S_19, S_24 and S_77.
aleo solar AG already maintains its own local sales office in the UK. "In the British market, as elsewhere in Europe, we are relying on close partnerships with photovoltaic installers," explains Norbert Schlesiger, Chief Sales Officer at aleo solar AG. "We provide support for installers ranging from facility design to after sales." As well as modules, aleo solar also supplies complete photovoltaic systems. Over a thousand specialist dealers and installers are now part of aleo solar's European Partner Network.
Total installed solar power capacity has been rising markedly in the UK, following the introduction of a feed-in subsidy for renewable energies in April. Feed-in subsidies for rooftop systems - aleo solar's core segment - are particularly attractive.

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.
