Milford, N.H. - Hendrix Molded Products announces its vandal-resistant HPI High-Density Polyethylene insulators. The impact resistance of the HPI insulators means that they are shatter resistant when hit, making them an excellent choice for vandal deterrence. Additionally, ballistics tests have shown that even with damage from rifle or shotgun fire, the HPI Insulator will still operate, providing assured reliability even during hunting season.

Ballistics testing was performed on HPI Insulators to ensure that service would continue, even after being shot. After being subjected to multiple shots at approximately 40 feet with a .308 caliber rifle, 12-gauge buckshot and a 12 gauge deer slug the insulators still passed wet and dry flashover requirements.

Additionally, the insulators' rugged design makes them shatter-resistant when hit with balls, stones or projectiles. This lessens their appeal as targets of vandalism, which help utilities ensure continued service and reliability.

The Hendrix Molded Products division has been offering innovative product solutions to a multitude of industries for over 45 years. For more information about the products and service solutions from Hendrix, please visit www.hendrix-wc.com.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
