Solar Thermal Systems can be Planned and Simulated Quickly and Effectively with New T*SOL basic 5.0

With the introduction of T*SOL basic 5.0, Valentin Software will add a practical tool with a modern interface, simple user navigation and new design assistance to the T*SOL® range, providing users with convincing arguments to present to customers considering investing in a solar thermal system.

In particular for residential buildings, T*SOL® basic With 50 allows both beginners and professional planners to rapidly design, simulate and clearly present the planned solar thermal system, including a yield forecast and financial analysis, 20 pre-configured standard systems, T*SOL® basic 5.0 covers around 80% of the systems used for housing in Europe and the USA. The menus and features in T*SOL® basic 5.0 have been adapted to the current needs and requirements of the solar industry.


The integrated design assistant for collectors, storage tanks and boilers gives the planner concrete design proposals that can be compared to one another. In addition to the pre-configured systems, component databases are available with 1,600 collectors, 700 storage tanks, as well as 1,100 boilers and heaters. T*SOL® basic 5.0 includes convenient functions such as favorites management, searching in tabulated texts, and sorting/filtering of components. The integrated photo-dimensioning program "Photo Plan" makes it possible to realistically present the customer's roof with the planned solar thermal system and also facilitates customer acquisition. And the heating and hot water consumption for swimming pools can be just as effectively planned and simulated with T*SOL® basic 5.0.

The climate database of the MetoeoSyn tool, which is included in T*SOL® basic 5.0, contains more than 8,000 locations worldwide.(The latest climate data from the Geman Weather Service (DWD) is delivered with T*SOL® basic 5.0. For Germany alone, around 450 locations are available)

T*SOL® basic 5.0 is available in five languages – English, French, German, Italian and Spanish – as are the user handbook and the context-sensitive help facility. Valentin Software's regular free introductory webinars for the design and simulation of a solar thermal system make it even easier for users to get started.

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.
