     Multifunction meter reads multiple electrical systems Facility managers can easily measure
and monitor power quality and demand via six critical parameters of their electrical systems with the VCFP96M Multifunction Meter from ATC Diversified Electronics. It is a complete single-phase and three-phase digital metering system, suitable for low-, medium-, and high- voltage control panels, gensets, load banks, building management systems, and power management systems. The VCFP96M can be used on single-phase, three-phase three wire, as well as three- phase four wire balanced or unbalanced systems. The six easy-to-access front control keys are used for scrolling up
or down through the parameters being measured and displayed. They include voltage, current, power factor, power (active, reactive, apparent), energy, and frequency. The VCFP96M multifunction meter is permanently installed into the panel box. Output specifications include pulse output and RS485 Modbus RTU communication protocol compatible with PC, PLC, RTU, data loggers, and SCADA programs. The VCFP96M is available in a 96mm x 96mm housing (front panel IP65) with red LED display for easy viewing
in a variety of conditions. It features an easy to read display with four rows, LCD backlight, and a convenient bar graph for current representation.

Half-cut cell module
The new high-density module technology from Vikram Solar is engineered to generate more power from advanced mono-PERC half-cells, thus achieving better Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE). The innovative design principle minimizes shadow-loss through a series- parallel cell connection, when one-half of the modules are affected by shading. The high efficiency half-cell modules
are a solution for all utility and rooftop projects. The new solar module consists of 144 and 120 half-cells instead of 72
and 60 full cells, yet keeps nearly the same dimension as standard 72 and 60 cell modules. It provides high energy yield through lower cell resistance. Half- cell modules have a high fill factor and high efficiency. The cells are cut with
low temperature and lower kerf depth, maximizing cell yield with no junction damage. Module power mismatch loss
is reduced by a factor of four as power loss is proportional to the square of the current. There is no hotspot degradation on the modules and the split junction box provides better heat dissipation, which improves the life of the module.

Wind-load analysis method for solar trackers
RenewSys launches a PV Module Soltec presents Dy-WIND, a method for comprehensive dynamic analysis
in tracker wind-design. To develop Dy- WIND, Soltec has teamed up with the engineering consultancy Rowan Williams Davies & Irwin Inc (RWDI), which specializes in wind engineering projects. RWDI already has the expertise and
wind tunnels that use stereolithography technology, integrated data acquisition, storage and processing systems, computer-aided drafting, and a broad base of specialized instrumentation. Dy- WIND analysis is applied to tracker wind- design for accurate modeling that leads to precise manufacturing processes. This allows accurate economic calculations regarding the profitability and robustness of a solar tracker plant. The hybrid experimental-numerical approach accurately estimates tracker behavior under the action of wind in multi-row arrays, and allows flexibility in the design process that is generally not practical through full aeroelastic model testing.

New thermal solar collector
Solar Hybrid Technology Corp.’s products use reflective mirrors to increase the sunlight and double the power of the solar collector. Solar Hybrid Technology new products are all stainless steel and used for residential, commercial, and industrial facilities. The new products are for high temperature applications and used for distillation, hot water, swimming pool, heating, and air conditioning. These solar collectors offer double the efficiency with higher temperature, less real estate, and less cost. They are protected against hail and snow, and are self-cleaning for max efficiency. The tank, lamps, reflector, and base are all in one unit so there is no need for elevated cold-water tank. The base provides for latitude adjustment and the focal point moves along the lamps with the change of seasons. The 20sq/
ft absorber area has a reflector on the bottom and top allowing for continuous all year sun tracking without any moving parts. Available options are insulated water tank or heat exchanger, and different lamps and coatings.
Solar Hybrid Technology Corp.
S-5!® has introduced a new and improved PV Kit, boasting lower installation time and cost for PV flush-mounting. The kit comes preassembled with both MidGrab and EdgeGrab for easier and more efficient installation. A single tool drives the top bolt, eliminating several installation steps. The PV Kit 2.0 features more aggressive bonding teeth for better grounding. Fewer lugs/ground wires required.
• Pre-assembled components save time and money
• Only one tool needed for installation
• Bolt head uses standard hex bit tip which is provided
• Improved single piece EdgeGrab installs with ease
• Low profile bolt head provides a flush, clean finish
• Also available in black by special order
• One inch gap between modules, allowing load reduction per ASCE7
• UL 2703 Listed
