NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 17, 2015) - ACT Aurora Control Technologies Corp. ("Aurora" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ACU) is extremely pleased to announce the receipt of a letter of intent from an existing customer for the purchase of two Decima inline measurement system with Veritas™ software. The expected order is for the new Decima technology that measures three tracks down every wafer as they emerge from the annealing or diffusion furnace at full production rates. Aurora's patent-pending Veritas software displays the resultant emitter profiles in three dimensions thus monitoring the quality of each wafer from the furnaces, comparing them with specifications and allowing operators to adjust and optimize the furnace parameters for higher yield of top quality cells.

"Our work with this customer quickly demonstrated the accuracy and repeatability of the Decima measurement technology," said Steve McDonald, Vice President of Business Development. He went on to say that "Aurora's tube uniformity visualizations highlighted previously unknown levels of process variation. This information was vital to our customer when selecting the best furnace technology for their new line where Aurora's Decima technology will be integrated inline for batch-to-batch diffusion furnace optimization."

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.
