LAFAYETTE, Colorado – Next Generation Energy, LLC, introduces the SunBandit®

Water Heating System for preview at the Solar Power International 2012 conference. The SunBandit® is a revolutionary new approach to solar water heating that utilizes PV technology instead of solar thermal collectors providing an easier, more reliable, and cost-effective renewable energy solution.

The patent pending SunBandit® Water Heating System employs PV modules as the primary energy source to heat water, integrating electric, gas or oil as the secondary source. The NGE® controller maintains the desired water temperature by regulating the flow of energy. The economical price and simplicity of the SunBandit® over traditional solar thermal greatly expands the market for those interested in using the free energy of the sun to deliver hot water.

"The SunBandit® Water Heating System is a disruptive technological approach to water heating by utilizing PV technology to heat hot water simpler, more reliably, and more cost-effectively than conventional solar thermal systems," CEO Dave Kreutzman said. "With the release of the SunBandit® Water Heating System, everyone has access to trouble-free, practical, and affordable solar hot water."

Next Generation Energy® is a cutting-edge energy solutions provider. Through

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

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.
