Caleffi Introduces the StarMax V™ Series Solar Collectors

Caleffi proudly introduces the StarMax V™ solar water heating collector for pumped glycol

and drainback systems. The patent pending design is shaped similar to a standard fouroutlet
collector, but features a fifth outlet located at the bottom center. Additionally the
internal upper and lower headers are sloped. When used in a drainback installation, this
combination allows all fluid to drain without the need to pitch the collectors. Installers will
appreciate the labor savings and owners will appreciate a collector array mounted plumb
and level on the roof. The temperature well is directly connected to absorber for very
accurate sensing.

The all copper absorbers are selective blue coated for optimum heat absorption. The
collector is housed in a solid, powder coated frame with welded corners, thus providing
long lasting life under the harshest of climate conditions. The frame is reinforced with an
injection moldered polyurethane foam, which adds to frame structural stability while
providing a high R-value. A dent free, embossed PVC back panel also minimizes heat
loss.

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.
