SolarBOS Proud to Introduce Battery Connection Panel

Allowing customers to employ multiple battery banks with a single inverter.

LIVERMORE, California (May, 2015) - SolarBOS, a leading developer and manufacturer for balance of system products in the solar energy industry, is pleased to announce the release of their new Battery Connection Panels product line.


"Developing the Battery Connection Panel product to serve the rapidly growing energy storage industry was a natural fit for SolarBOS, given our long history manufacturing high voltage DC fuse and breaker panels for the solar industry," says Daniel Sherwood, Director of Product Management for SolarBOS. "Batteries as a voltage source present some unique challenges for safe overcurrent protection. Our customers can now safely connect several storage batteries in parallel to achieve any required storage capacity, with a product that was specifically designed with battery storage in mind."

The SolarBOS Battery Connection Panels combine the outputs of multiple storage batteries before the inverter, allowing customers to employ multiple battery banks with a single inverter.

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.
