Morningstar Introduces the SunSaver MPPT' Controller

The controller (15 amps at 12/24 volts) features a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the energy harvest from the PV. This product also provides load control to prevent over discharge of the battery.

Washington Crossing, PA USA - Morningstar is pleased to announce its latest product release, the SunSaver MPPT solar controller with TrakStar Technology'. The SunSaver MPPT is an advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery charger for off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 400 watts.


The controller (15 amps at 12/24 volts) features a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the energy harvest from the PV. This product also provides load control to prevent over discharge of the battery.

The SunSaver MPPT enables the use of high voltage and thin film modules for off-grid PV battery charging. In addition, the controller provides a means to use up to a 36V array to charge a 24V or 12V battery.

This product is well suited for both professional and consumer PV applications. Its charging process has been optimized for long battery life and improved system performance. The SunSaver MPPT is epoxy encapsulated for environmental protection, and is adjustable via on-board switches or PC connection.

Morningstar is the world's leading supplier of solar charge controllers and inverters whose quality products provide higher reliability and better performance. The firm's products are sold through a network of over 164 authorized solar distributors worldwide.

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.
