17/05/2020 - Solar panels in larger power classes

Phaesun now supplies the competitve Insdustrial solar panels in larger power classes with 72 cells from 320 to 350 Wpeak. Morevoer, the Sun Plus 100 now gives 110Wp instead of 100Wp and the Sun Peak with Sunpower cells give 10Wp more in the same dimensions. Also SOLARA, through consistent research and development has been able to develop all framed S-Series solar panels with 10-30 watts more power for the same price and the same dimensions.

Details can be found here.

 


30/04/2020 - Solutions for energy independence

Even in times of crisis, almost all workshops and delearships in Germany continue to work and deliver pre-ordered cars or repair damages. A well-known, large dealer from Norderstedt was faced with the task of accommodating as much wattage as possible in the limited space available in this Pössl. With the Sun Plus 170, 12V, 170 Wp. and the Phaesun Spoiler Profile Set: Perfect Mount 68 silver, this has been achieved considerably!

The customer is happy has a lot of available power.

 


30/04/2020 - BOSS Kit Solar Cold Room SelfChill


The Phaesun Cold Room SelfChill is designed to make use of surplus energy of mini-grids while fulfilling cooling equirements. The Solution is based on four main components:
• Insulated room of different sizes and wall thicknesses
depending on required volume, desired storage
temperature and average ambient temperature
• Ice-storage available in two different sizes depending on
energy availability (avrg. hours/day) and cooling demand
• Fan-coil with integrated temperature control
• Smart control unit for load shifting in communication with the
grid

30/04/2020 - Hybrid Inverter Range Made in Europe!

The WESTERN CO. Leonardo Off-Grid GE was conceived and specially developed for the production and storage of energy; combined with photovoltaic modules and storage batteries, it provides power to the house until it is fully self-sustained, with the aid of a generator (back-up) in case of reduced renewable energy.The system provides independent MPPT inputs through a dedicated charge controller. This technology implements a search circuit of maximum power depending on the voltage and current of the PV module, always maximizing the energy delivered. By connecting a generator to the AC input, the system ensures continuity of operation of the users without perceptible discontinuity in case of low battery. In fact, the genset simultaneously manages the power supply of the loads and the charge of the battery bank. Available are the following four power ranges: 1kW/1500/24 GE Version, 4kW/3000/48 GE Version, 4kW/5000/48 GE Version, 8kW/8000/48 GE Version.

 


 

31/03/2020 - New Western WRM20+

We present the new charge controller for photovoltaic applications WRM20 from Western Co. WRM20 is a complete solution for off-grid PV systems, to supply power to road signs systems, lighting systems, small low voltage systems and for recharge of batteries inside caravans or boats.
Several programs of load management, selectable by the user, make WRM20 the complete solution in many applications i.e. to supply power to CCTV cameras that have to work only during the day, or for blinking light systems/road signs that have to work only during the night, or to supply power to lighting systems that have to work only for a certain number of hours during the night.

01/02/2020 - Global Leap Award for Steca PF fridges / freezers

The Global LEAP Awards, an initiative of the Efficiency for Access Coalition, supported by UK Aid and Power Africa, is an international competition that identifies and promotes the world's best and most energy-efficient off-grid refrigerators for compatibility with off-grid solar systems.

The Steca PF 166-H Off-Grid freezer is convincing! Advantages such as the climate-friendly R290 coolant, low consumption and good value for money helped the chest freezer to win.




01/02/2020 - Remote control RCC and Energy Monitoring App from Studer

The following Video explains the programming of the Remote Control RCC. The new Easy Monitoring App has a user-friendly design which makes easy to keep an eye on an installation, displaying the most important system values at a glance. While the Studer Portal provides full access to the control and configuration of the system, the Easy Monitoring App is a pure monitoring tool reading real-time and past data from the installation.  Also, this remote monitoring can be shared without risks to any final user of the system.
Download the Studer Easy Monitoring App today in the Apple Store or Google Play.
