LORENTZ is well known as a quality designer and manufacturer of solar pumps. Through innovative electronic controlling, outstanding manufacturing quality and a simple design, Lorentz have managed to reduce the high cost of solar water pumping. Their submersible helical rotor pumps consist of only two parts, Lorentz's brushless motors are water filled and maintenance free, while the electronics are NOT inside the submerged motor but easily accessible on the surface.

The helical rotor solar pump can deliver up to 39,000 litres of water per day, and the centrifugal pump can deliver up to 137,000 litres of water per day. These pumps can lift water up to 240 metres, which is astounding for a solar pump.

Energy Matters provide simple DIY installation kits, plus pumps are virtually maintenance free and come with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty. Each solar pumping system includes Lorentz Submersible Solar Pump, Lorentz PS series controller, motor, plugs for connecting all components, low level switch, splice kit (ie. lugs and heat shrink), and a circuit breaker.

The PS series solar controller manages the pump system and monitors operating states. It is mounted on the surface with no electronic parts submerged. It has two control inputs for well probe (dry running protection), float or pressure switches, remote control, etc. The PS solar controllers also include speed control, integrated maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and battery operation.

The brushless DC motor contains no electronics, and the dynamic slide bearings are made out of carbon and ceramic. The wetted material of the motor is made of rubber and stainless steel and is drinking water approved!

The applications of the solar pump include: irrigation, water bores, pond management, drinking water supply, pond management, livestock watering, topping up tanks. Please contact Energy Matters for more information.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
