ECOVACS ROBOTICS NAMED AS 2015 CES INNOVATION AWARDS HONOREE

The RAYBOT from Ecovacs Robotics is a new environmentally friendly robot designed to effortlessly clean solar panels.

Canton, OH, November 2014 – Ecovacs Robotics announced that it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for the RAYBOT, the Water-Free Solar Panel Cleaning Robot. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.


The RAYBOT from Ecovacs Robotics is a new environmentally friendly robot designed to effortlessly clean solar panels. Capable of cleaning commercial and utility-scale solar photovoltaic panels up to a 75-degree angle, the RAYBOT safely sweeps, blows and vacuums the panels to remove dust and dirt, ensuring that the maximum amount of sunlight is exposed to the panels to produce energy.

"Ecovacs Robotics is honored to receive the esteemed CES Innovation Award honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology," said Jeff Mellin, director of marketing for Ecovacs Robotics. "Solar power has become one of the most rapidly implemented renewable sources of electricity for homes and businesses around the world. However, many people forget that dust and dirt can hinder the energy output because it blocks the sun's rays. The RAYBOT can help ensure that solar photovoltaic panel systems are always clean for optimum performance."

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

Ecovacs Robotics will display the RAYBOT at the 2015 International CES, which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada at booth #26014 in the Unmanned Systems Marketplace LVCC South Hall (Ground Floor). Honorees were also displayed at CES Unveiled New York, which features dozens of exhibitors and networking opportunities on November 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, New York.

Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace and unique/novel features present.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market. 2015 CES Innovation Honoree products are featured on CESweb.org/Innovation, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, description, photo and URL.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
