Dear Readers,

I am delighted to present our new product catalogue 2011/2012. The demand for an energy switch is becoming increasingly important, not only due to the recent events in Japan. For this reason, it must remain our objective to expand renewable energies and therefore create a real alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear power. With an investment in photovoltaics, you are not only investing in climate protection, but also making a safe cash investment. As a wholesaler and system provider, SOLEOS has assumed the task to sell solar power plants nationally and abroad. In doing so, our focus is on the sale of complete, aligned photovoltaic systems that consist of solar modules, inverters, installation systems and suitable accessories. I particularly wish to point out our new products to you. To respond to market conditions in an optimum way, we have added solar modules in black, the SOLEOS Black-Line, the Integreos roof integration system and three-phase inverters to our range. But we are also your contact for the use of independent off-grid systems for remote areas. As a systems specialist, we assume both the planning of the solar power plant and the technical advice. When assembling the components, our aim is to offer you the right products at the right time and right price. We are therefore at your side as a reliable partner. I wish you a successful and sunny year! I hope you enjoy reading our product catalogue. With sunny regards

David Mabille Managing Director/CEO

WP*

Our SOLEOS-LINE includes SOLEOS Black 185-8MM, SOLEOS 190-8MM, SOLEOS 250-2MS, SOLEOS Black 250-2MS as well as SOLEOS 300-8MM. The SOLEOS-LINE is manufactured under the most stringent quality requirements. The modules feature a low power tolerance. This low value is the direct consequence of the optimum processing of excellent cells and prevents

mismatch losses in the PV system. The degree of efficiency ranges from 13.2% to 15.2% and the modules can withstand a snow load up to 5400 Pascal. The increased snow load is an indication of the resilience of the modules to external environmental factors. These modules are hence ideal for snowy areas.

Solarisation


REC European product technology Renewable Energy Corporation (REC) makes solar power accessible and affordable by using the strengths in the entire photovoltaic value added chain. REC is one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of silicon materials, PV wavers, solar cells and modules, and is active in selected markets in solar system integration. REC has been active in the solar sector since 1996 and has become one of the world’s leading companies in the meantime.

REC has low carbon emissions, as the entire silicon production and a large part of wafer and cell processing is conducted with water power. Studies, amongst others by the University of Utrecht, have shown that the amortisation period of REC solar power systems with crystalline, silicon-based solar modules is lower than that of all other systems examined.

New! Transformerless string inverters Powador 3200 — 4400 — 5300 — 5500 — 6600 The successors of our Powador 2500xi to Powador 5000xi transformerless single-phase inverters are equipped with digital controllers so that they can be used internationally. The appropriate country settings can easily be selected onsite; the country-specific settings are stored in the software, so the inverters can be quickly installed in any country. Users can also choose a menu language regardless of the selected country setting. We have changed the product names in line with this improvement. The maximum PV generator power for which the particular unit is optimised can now be read from the designation. All units from the Powador 3200 to the Powador 6600 operate with a full bridge without a step-up converter. Four IGBT power switches reproduce the sine-shaped voltage

curve of the public power grid employing pulse width modulation. These are true single-stage, selfcommutated units. However, the input voltage must be greater than the peak line voltage for them to be used. The units are equipped with a wide MPP range of 350 V to 600 V. The open circuit voltage is 800 V, which simplifies the work of installers when laying out systems. The same is true for the integrated DC disconnect. Screw terminals make connecting to the grid easy. The units contain a single- or three-phase monitoring system conforming to VDE0126-1-1, including an AC/DC-sensitive residual current protector. The units can thus be connected to the grid without any additional measures, even in installations with several inverters.

The particular feature of this solution is that, for the three inverters to be equally loaded, KACO has for the first time implemented an innovative method with rotating Master function. Previously, the same inverter always took care of Master-Slave circuit operations when solar radiation was low. The Master- Change solution is used in the Megawatt Station. According to this principle, the three devices take it in turn as Master - an innovation which increases the life of the inverters many-fold. Furthermore the high degree of efficiency of the Powador 350-HV TL of course continues in the Megawatt Station. The Megawatt Station is available in various configurations and provides the option for custom adjustments (e.g. with integrated proLOG) to the requirements of the system and grid operator (e.g. integration of a medium voltage measuring field).

The second generation of highly efficient, on-grid solar inverters SI 2500 has some new developments in store. As such, the SI 2500, for instance, reaches a better efficiency rate of up to 95.6% by using the tried and tested resonance converter topology. A further interesting feature of the 2nd generation of the SI 2500 is the enhanced input voltage range of up to 540 V. The solar inverter SI 3300 from Delta convinces with its top efficiency of 96.0% and is rightly the top inverter with a transformer (see Photon solar power magazine 05/2008). Thanks to the elegant and compact housing as well as the low-noise function of the SI 3300, the solar inverter from Delta even looks great in the living

area. You can, of course, also fit the SI 3300 in a protected outdoor area, as protection class IP65 means that it is dust-proof, fully contact-proof and protected against spraywater from all directions. Thanks to state-of-the-art high frequency technology the galvanically isolated solar inverter SI 5000 achieves top efficiency levels and therefore guarantees continuously excellent energy production. This highly efficient, on-grid solar inverter can be used both indoors and in protected outdoor areas thanks to its protection class IP65. A simple operation of the device is made possible thanks to the user-friendly display.

KACO accessories for system monitoring Anybody investing in a photovoltaic system wants to be sure that it generates maximum power yields in an optimum operational state. No matter whether you are looking to keep an eye on a small system from the comfort of your home or to control an entire solar park when out and about, you are always the master of the situation with KACO accessories. We will be glad to assist in putting together your tailormade solution so that you are able to keep an eye on yields from the very first second. We offer data loggers as professional solutions which are synchronised perfectly to KACO inverters. The fact that proLog family data loggers and inverters come from the same source ensures optimal functionality and compatibility - perfect monitoring, data recording and analysis of the system, from the 5 kWp system right to the 60 MWp system. For large-scale systems which are rated at 100 KW and which must be connected to the ripple control receivers of energy suppliers, proLog XL family data loggers provide the relevant interfaces to satisfy current regulations.

Various interfaces also provide connectivity for large displays, alarm contacts, in-feed meters, etc. To also enable owners of smaller PV systems to achieve costeffective monitoring of their systems, KACO has extended its range of data loggers. Besides the very affordable miniLOG, elegant displays are available which not only show system data, but also have an aesthetically pleasing design. In addition to the solutions from KACO, we can also offer you data loggers from the Solarlog family for systems with a medium rating (up to 100 kW). These makes the fundamental monitoring of the system very simple. There are also solutions here for mixed systems in which inverters other than KACO models are used. The presence of an Internet router makes remote connection easy.

Der Powador-proLOG: Accessory Powador-link RS 485 The Powador-link RS485 is a radio module comprising a transmitter and receiver acting as a wireless extension of the RS485 bus on the inverter. The 6-port RS485 hub is new to the range of accessories. This device allows the configuration of a star-shaped RS485 network. This enables the simpler configuration of the RS485 bus system in many cases, simplifying cabling and resulting in savings in installation costs. As sturdy and flexible as the RS485 bus may be, it has one decisive drawback - it requires a cable!

So what happens for example when a cable needs to laid across a road - but not above or below it? The solution is the Powador Link - the wireless cable! This enables you to essentially use the Powador Link as a normal RS485 cable. On one side of the road, a module is installed at the point the cable must end. The other module is installed on the other side where the cable continues. The radio bridge is fully transparent to all devices connected. No further configuration is necessary on the devices connected to the RS485 bus.

IO Module The IO module is an extension module with which you are able to increase the number of analogue/digital channels on the Powador-proLOG. The extension module is available in 2 variants:

â&#x20AC;˘ IO module 1 (4 analogue inputs, 4 digital inputs, 1 digital output) â&#x20AC;˘ IO module 2 (8 digital inputs, 1 digital output)

Powador-go As an accessory for the large Powador-proLOG data logger, the current sensor provides two additional functions:

These 2 versions are available: Advanced: RS485 is not optically isolated Premium: RS485 is optically isolated

1. More than 32 string inverters or 10 central inverters can be linked to the monitor and up to 100 Powador-go units can be connected for each proLOG.

In the Premium variant, RS485 communication is galvanically isolated from the bus system. This is recommended if the sensors are combined with inverters in the bus network. The Advanced variant is used in the Powador-go Set - galvanic isolation is not required here.

2. Inverters without an RS485 interface can also be monitored with the PowadorproLOG. Two versions of the Powador-go current sensors are now available.

Inverters

Module temperature sensor This self-adhesive temperature sensor measures the temperature of photovoltaic modules. In order to do this, the temperature sensor is stuck onto the rear of a photovoltaic module. This silicone rubber plaster contains a PT100 thin film temperature sensor. The sensor is held tight against aluminium film used as the base. After removing the protective film, the self-adhesive aluminium film can be stuck directly onto the surface to be monitored. The sensor is supplied with a 2m connec-

tion lead (wires 7 x 0.2), and works together with the PXT 10 temperature converter. This conditions the signal of the PT 100 temperature sensor for the PowadorproLOG. Line resistances between temperature sensor and temperature converter are compensated for. This converter is required for the self-adhesive module temperature sensor. For the Powador-proLOG, we recommend a 230V AC power supply to relieve loading of the internal PSU of the Powador-proLOG.

Irradiation sensor The irradiation sensor is used for professional monitoring of a photovoltaic system. The irradiation measured is used to determine the expected yield of a PV system and to compare it to the actual yield. The shortcircuit current of a silicon (Si) solar cell is proportional to the solar irradiation. The Si sensors use a monocrystalline solar cell which is operated virtually in short-circuit with a low-impedance resistor. The positive temperature coefficient of the short-circuit

36

current results in a low measurement error. The Si sensors (with code TC) therefore have active temperature compensation which reduces this error by a factor of 20. A special temperature sensor is laminated into the rear of the solar cell for this purpose. All sensors have been calibrated against a pyranometer when exposed to sunlight (Kipp & Zonen, model CM11).


Analysis options Powador-monitor Powador-monitor is PC software for the local analysis of readings recorded by the Powador-proLOG data logger. Data is transferred to the computer via a modem or over Ethernet. The data can be impor-

ted with a compact flash card. Different views can be selected. Archiving is also possible, allowing users to visually check inverter values over longer periods.

Powador-web Powador-web is an Internet portal which, in conjunction with the Powador-proLOG, enables comprehensive analysis and visualisation of photovoltaic systems. The options range from energy production related to different time periods and sub-systems (including actualtarget comparisons and individual inverter values such as current, volta-

ge, power on inputs and outputs) to module temperature and solar irradiation. Also, alarm conditions and types of messages can be configured and regulated. Powador-web displays are available in 10”, 15” and 42” sizes.

KACO CALC Pro — The free-of-charge design program KACO CALC Pro is a free-of-charge program for the professional design and yield simulation of grid-connected photovoltaic systems. It runs under Microsoft Windows and is available for download on the KACO homepage (www. kaco-newenergy.de). Technical details for all KACO inverters, several hundred PV module types and irradiation data based on average values for the last 10 years for Germany are all available for calculations.

KACO CALC Pro enables you to design your overall system - either based on module data already stored or based on parameters you enter yourself. You can also carry out a yield forecast and calculate the loss of AC and DC lines, including the loss for single and threephase feed. The program is available in German, English, Spanish, Italian, Czech and French.

37


Inverters Wechselrichter

The following calculations are possible: PV system design:

Using the module type and the number of modules as the starting point, you can establish which KACO inverters are suitable for your system. This takes into consideration the ratings of modules in relation to the inverter rating, the MPP voltage, the opencircuit voltage and the system voltage.

Yield forecast:

An average annual irradiation figure is recorded for every postcode. The irradiation is used to calculate a yield forecast (dependent on alignment and setup angle of the modules). The yield forecast is a conservative estimate which is generally exceeded in practise.

38


Cable losses:

Cable loss calculation is divided into three subgroups - DC cable losses, AC cable losses and AC three-phase cable losses. This enables you to calculate cable losses individually. For cable losses on the DC side, you should also consider generator connection boxes.

PV modules:

All popular PV modules are kept in a list which is continually updated. If your module is not in the list, you can easily add new modules from the input screen. Modules entered yourself are retained when the list is updated later.

Sloped-roof installation frames are understood to include all roof parallels and elevated systems with a certain module angle.

soleos

Outdoor elevations are used for erecting on concrete foundations or with ground bolts. Roof integration systems are integrated directly into the roof as sealing roof coverings. • Mounting systems for trapezoidal sheet roof • Roof integration systems Our installation systems form an inherently coordinated range of individual components. Trained personnel configure these for a particular project with an eye to simple and quick installation, required safety and cost optimisation of photovoltaic systems. Of particular note is the fact that materials with the necessary resistance to environmental factors and destructive processes are used.

Flat-roof systems are elevated systems with loading by curb stones or gravel.

43


Tailor-made mounting systems The suitable system for any application Tailor-made customer-specific price calculations and material compositions of materials are based on individual customer-side data entry, preferably using our company’s various checklists and of course over the telephone. Preparation and planning of installation systems is only possible with good customer contact. Customer consultation and support is hence our top priority. This starts with bid proposal and continues through the ordering and delivery phases, ending with installation on the roof.

Important applicable standards and directives: • DIN ISO 900:20081 • DIN 1055 Effects on bearing loads • Part 4 Wind loads, Part 5 Snow loads • Joints in accordance with DIN 188000 • DIN 1052 Timber structures Static structural integrity verification can be provided for all installation systems if so required.

Sloped roof installation system This substructure can be used for attachment on sloped roofs with different roof coverings (module independent). This comprises a of a roof attachment element (e.g. roof hook, roof seam clamps, hangar bolt, trapezoidal shoes, etc.), aluminium profile rails, stainless steel joint elements and a material for clamping the modules on the profile rails.

44

Selection of the appropriate roof attachment element is based on the roofing, the condition of the loadbearing roof sub-structure, the load-bearing capacity of the roof and the roof angle.


Installation systems

Variant 1: Modules mounted vertically (standing)

Fig. 1

Fig. 1 shows a simple, lightweight substructure on horizontally positioned DC profile rails. The horizontal roof hook gap here is <= 1600mm. M6 cylinder head bolts are used as components for the installation, with washers and nuts to ensure non-slippage of the modules. Hammer- head bolts connect the aluminium profile rails to the roof hooks used. Threaded plates, clamping plates and washers are hooked into the DC profile rail premounted. Two aluminium clamping plates are used to attach two modules together on the aluminium profile. Clamping brackets are used at the end of every module row. The same procedure is used for all other rows.

Variant 2: Cross bracing Fig. 3 shows an assembly substructure of cross bracing design with vertical connection rails and horizontal attachment rails mounted on top. This system is used for heavily loaded systems.

Variant 3: Fig. 2

Modules elevated With elevated systems, a sturdy triangle made of aluminium L-profiles is placed on the roof attachment to position the modules at the correct angle. The profile rails are screwed with hammer-head screws to the tilted traverse of the elevation triangle.

Flat roof installation system A flat roof installation system is used for the deployment of ballasting for simple and quick installation of photovoltaic systems at ground level and on flat roofs up to an angle of approx. 5째. The load-bearing capacity of the roof must be checked beforehand by the customer. The standard products for elevations, the anchor bolts for attachment in concrete and the T-brackets or plastic plates for taking ballast are included in the delivery. The concrete blocks and gravel are not included in quotations or deliveries. We determine the ballast weight necessary for a specific case on the basis of all static information

such as snow and wind load, self-weight, elevation angle, module size and position. Positioning of modules to approx. 30째 is recommended to leverage the optimum annual efficiency. The universally deployable triangle structure made of aluminium Lprofiles, for bolting or already welded, has a reliable and proven track record in many applications. The modules can be mounted vertically or crosswise in observance of the installation instructions from the module manufacturers. If modules are to be elevated crosswise, it would be useful if you could tell us the clamping method you plan to use.

Variant 1: With concrete blocks

Fig. 1

It is possible to position the concrete blocks underneath the elevation frame so as to then anchor it in the concrete with anchor bolts. The frame can sit on the concrete with the base bracket or be secured at the tie bar.

Variant 2: With curb stones

Fig. 2

Fig. 2 shows loading with curb stones which are placed directly onto the brackets of the aluminium T-profiles. The distance between brackets must be 1m. Laying of the building protective mat must prevent the T-profiles pressing into the roof membrane.

Variant 3 With gravel loading

Fig. 3

46

Existing gravel layers on flat roofs can be used as weighting. For this we offer trapezoidal plastic plates onto which the elevation triangles are screwed with hexagonal screws. The plates can take up to 12cm of gravel. If the gravel is only limited to the photovoltaic surface, aluminium sheet metal trays with welded-on elevation brackets are available. These two variants allow a row network.


Installation systems

The ConSole is an innovative system specially developed for the installation of PV modules on flat roofs. All popular modules and laminates can be attached to it. This all-inone system comprises the ConSole, aluminium profiles and all minor parts for assembly. Installation is quick and easy. Simply attach the profiles on the module, fill the gravel or slabs as ballast into the ConSole and screw the module to the ConSole. The ConSole is made of recycled, durable plastic, is 100% chlorine-free and requires no maintenance. The ConSole is also TĂ&#x153;V-tested.

Outdoor installation system The outdoor installation system enables the implementation of diverse configuration options on even ground. The attachment of single or multi-row photovoltaic systems is independent of the module type and the position of modu-

les is variable. Diagonal struts secure the system against lateral forces. The setting angle used can be configured according to customer requirement and local conditions.

ReMAX ReMax is a rail system to implement large spanning widths. In addition to the main application (installation in open spaces), it is also very well suited for custom structures such as multi-row elevations, large roof beam gaps and flat roofs with large distances between supports. All ground connection options are open for system installations in open spaces. The number of rows above one another and the gap between supports can also be freely selected within wide ranges. This enables you to implement the most cost-effective solutions (conformant to the static requirements). An extremely installation- friendly claw fastening system is used to join individual rail levels. Telescopic inserts are provided for connecting individual carriers.

Outdoor installation system Variant 1: Angled design on concrete foundation

Fig. 1

The proven system offers the simplest configuration in which the angled structure is used on individual foundations, strip foundations or foundation plates. The substructure comprises aluminium brackets or profiles made of hot-dipped galvanized steel or stainless steel, aluminium profile rails and stainless steel joint elements (bolts, nuts, washers).

Variant 2: Steel tube design on concrete foundations Another system installation configuration is the steel tube carrier design with supporting feet. The telescope- type design allows additional height compensation. The structure comprises hot-dipped galvanized steel tubes, aluminium profile rails and stainless steel joint elements. Mortar cartridges (two-component adhesive) and threaded bolts are used for the attachment to the foundations. Fig. 2

Variant 3: Steel tube structure with DOMA速 screw foundations

Fig. 3

48

The use of a steel tube structure in combination with DOMA速 screw foundations provides for a very uncomplicated type of outdoor system installation. Screw foundations are turned into the ground for anchoring, hence making the pouring of concrete foundations redundant. This variant is excellently suited to compensating for unevenness in the ground and can be used for different ground types without sealing the ground. The steel tubes on which the proven installation system is attached are mounted on the screw foundations.


Installation systems

Installation system for trapezoidal sheet roofs ReDuce For trapezoidal sheet roofs in particular, SOLEOS offers an attachment system which has crossbar profiles and is suitable for all module types. The ReDuce installation system is a riveted variant used mainly for sloped trapezoidal roofs. Modules are placed directly on the rails and locked into place. Wind and eddy forces are low here because the contact surface of the wind is lower due to the lower mounting position. On the ReDuce system, a special coating ensures securing of the countersunk head screws in the pressure plates and the correct seating of the threaded plates. All screws are stainless steel and rustproof and all rails are made of sea water-resistant aluminium (EN AW 6060). This installation system is guaranteed for 10 years.

ReJect The ReJect installation system is an elevated system suitable for different subsurfaces and facades. Triangles are available in all angles and sizes, welded or bolted - depending on customer requirement. The system is secured with weight loading, hanger bolts or rivets. Individual, optimal roof layouts can be attained with edgewise or crosswise assembly. The roof surface area is used to its maximum. Easy insertion and fixing enables simple installation of the modules. All screws are stainless steel and rustproof and all rails are made of sea water-resistant aluminium (EN AW 6060). This system is also guaranteed for 10 years. For the lightweight design of trapezoidal plates in particular, an extended variant of the ReJect system is available as a riveted elevation with so-called wind deflectors. The rivet joint (the ground rails are riveted directly to the trapezoidal plate) and the wind deflector compensate for the wind forces and no additional weighting is necessary.

Roof integration systems The system of your choice for BIPV During the new development or roof refurbishment, questions are increasingly being asked about an intelligent solution that is, in particular, easy on the eye for the combination of photovoltaics and existing roof surfaces or such to be created. SOLEOS offers specially developed roof integration systems for this need. They are characterised by a flat design of the system and are suitable for nearly all roof slopes. Our roof integration systems are made in Germany and come with a 10-year warranty. Mounting of the innovative in-roof installation system is possible for vertical and horizontal module installation. It combines the proven module clamping system with sealing, integrated roof components and stainless steel joint parts. On

request, you are given the free SOLEOS planning tool to enable quick and simple planning. For individual questions and planning support, please do not hesitate to contact our team.

Mounting of the innovative in-roof installation system is possible for vertical and horizontal module installation. It combines the pro-

ven module clamping system with sealing, integrated roof components and stainless steel joint parts.

Integrate The main components of this installation system are aluminium plates which are bolted to the roofing battens. These form a kind of trough for accommodating the other parts. Both vertical and horizontal module installations are possible. All of the attachment materials are part of the preconfigured installation system. You also receive

materials for final sealing of the system as per the installation notes. Because the plates are split into vertical sections, there is a „chimney suction effect“ in every segment which cools the modules. This results in particularly positive yield trends.

The benefits:

50

• Roof integration with standard modules • Made in Germany • Simple installation • Water-conducting layer ensured by aluminium sheets • Construction sealing • Suitable for nearly any module • Suitable for one- and two-layer installation • Arrangement of the modules possible vertically or horizontally • 10-year warranty • Suitable for various roof covers


Installation systems

Integreos - The innovative in-roof solution The roof integration system Integreos can be combined with many different modules. It was ensured during construction that the use of most framed standard modules is possible. For standard modules, the frame may not have an absolutely watertight connection with the laminate under certain circumstances, which means that water by drip passed leaking areas. The leakproofness of the module edges is not ensured with additional sealing elements in the Integreos system. Instead, the water

that drips through the edges of the modules is collected by horizontal and vertical launder systems and directed into the dripping direction. The Integreos is fitted to the roof battens with screws. In the event of sufficient stability, the existing roof batten can be used. In doing so, the fastening of the sealing is carried out with an EPDM seal below the screw head and by an EPDM strap attached to be bottom side of the C profile.

Installation system accessories Suitable accessories for your PV system We have put together some explanations for you so as to enable you to more rapidly locate the roof hooks required. Roof hooks are used for roofs with roof tiles, slate tiles or concrete tiles. An additional distinction is made between pantile and plain roof hooks. The use of roof hooks with a base plate is recommended because the best place for feeding through the bracket can be found by moving the plate on the rafter. We make our roof hooks from different sorts of steel. This is why our standard versions are labelled appropriately: • Stainless steel*¹ = stainless steel 1.4301 • Stainless steel*² = mixed (clamp: stainless steel 1.4301; base plate: stainless steel 1.4016) Roof hooks in other steel types are available on request. To find the right roof hook for every load, our roof hooks are calculated statically and labelled accordingly.

Maximum bearable vertical force These values correspond to the maximum bearable vertical force and have been calculated for the following conditions: • Roof angle 30° • Permitted pressure 18.0 kN/cm² • Up-to-date drawings of the roof hooks An average value has been determined for height adjustable roof hooks - this lies at a height adjustment of 25mm. Slate roof hooks are exceptions. Here the height adjustment does not have any bearing on the maximum bearable vertical force. For pantile tiles and plain roof hooks, the lower bracket is designed to be used for a standard slat height (cross slat) of 3cm. A custom hook must be produced for lower slat heights. The height difference for larger slats can be

compensation with rafter attachments 5mm thick by bolting them to the rafter. Height-adjustable roof hooks are used to level uneven roofs. • Max. height adjustment for pre-mounted clamp position: approx. 2.5cm • Max. height adjustment for turned clamp: approx. 5cm Some of the factors affecting the selection of roof hooks: • The diameter of the attachment screw. We offer as standard an elongated hole in the upper part of the bracket with a diameter of 9mm. • The static requirements for the installation system. We supply our hooks in bracket thicknesses 30x5, 35x6, 40x6 and 40x8. • The demands made of the base plate holes: Small base plate: 150 x 60 x 4, 8 holes @ 9mm Standard base plate: 180 x 80 x 4, 8 holes @ 11 mm Base plate for highest static load: 180 x 80 x 5, 12 holes @ 11 mm

Clamping brackets Aluminium with M6 threaded plate, screw and washer Module clamping brackets are used at the end of each row or column to attach the modules. Clamping brackets must be adjusted to the thickness of the module frames. Module clamping plates always clamp the modules between two neighbouring modules. The M6 threaded plate is similar in shape to the head of a hammer-head screw. This is fixed to the screw with a special adhesive to enable effective mounting of the clamping plates. When tightening clamping brackets and clamping plates, ensure that the threaded plate is turned into the DC

Fill up with sunshine With the Solar Carport New to our portfolio, and available now, is the Solar Carport rated at 5-5.5 kWp. This is achieved using 24 photovoltaic modules. The angle of incidence can be adjusted within a range of 5° to 25°. Simple installation and easy expansion are two major features of the design. A profile attached underneath the modules as a sealing rail ensures the roof is watertight. This profile ensures orderly water drainage. A perforated plate is attached below the profiles to address the safety issues pertaining to overhead glazing. The plate guarantees rear ventilation of the modules and can also be coloured so that unsightly cables cannot be seen.

Many other accessories, such as roof sheeting, guttering and lighting, are of course also available.

The new Carport – elegant and practical Do you want to give your carport colour-matching side walls? We offer the following solution: Static cross beams made of zinc-plated steel lend the system stability. Select your very own colour from the current RAL range for the aluminium profiles. We can supply the shapely and modern Carport in a standard size, as a double carport or with a field-wise extension option. You receive all fastening materials for the concrete foundation as well as detailed setup instructions. Use the roof to support a photovoltaic system.

Off-grid systems An off-grid system is the name given to a self-contained energy supply system. These types of systems have no connection to an available power network. The following pages describe all of the components which make up an off-grid system: • Off-grid inverters • Solar charge regulator • Batteries Please contact us should you not be able to find the product you are looking for. Our technical staff are available at all times to help out: We provide support in the technical design of your project and provide you with technical documents - with tailor-made drawings for your project if so required.

61


What are off-grid systems? Individual solution for your application Off-grid systems are used in areas where there is no electricity network. They are also used in applications such as toys, mobile phone chargers, garden lamps, allotments, mobile homes, holiday homes, residential buildings and parking meters. Off-grid photovoltaic systems comprise a generator (solar module), a charge regulator and, where required, power conversion (off-grid inverter) and energy storage (battery). We will be glad to assist in the design and configuration of your tailor-made solar system. For optimal system design, we will need certain information from you, without which we will be unable to generate a quotation.

62

Because solar irradiation levels and differ in every location on the planet, an exact description of the location is important (country, place, features of the surroundings, type of roof, etc.) Because the size of the system is heavily dependent on the daily consumption (in Wh), accurate information on individual consumers and how long they use the equipment must be available.


Off-grid systems

Off-grid inverters KI-Series Local power generation is where the future lies, especially in areas with no reliable public electricity network. Offgrid inverters enable local electricity networks to be set up to support any kind of alternating current consumers. The requirements for off-grid inverters are high - good conversion efficiency, high overload capability, tolerance to voltage fluctuations of batteries, and an economical operating state. Not a problem for our KI family of off-grid inverters! They provide independent power supply in regions away from the grid under extreme conditions. The KI family comprises galvanically isolated devices with MOSFET semiconductors.

Electrical details

They convert the direct voltage (e.g. 12V, 24V or 48V) of a battery into alternating voltage (230V/50Hz or 110V/60Hz). Even sensitive electronic devices such as energy-saving lamps and laptops can be run with it. Using our inverters is often cheaper than purchasing less efficient 12V DC devices. Beware: Solutions with a „modified sine wave voltage“ (trapezium or triangular shape) or square wave voltages can even damage sensitive operating equipment.

The reCUBE The independent off-grid system The reCUBE was specially developed for use in areas away from the grid. It forms a mobile supply unit which can work without a diesel generator and which is completely based on renewable energy sources. It uses a PV generator to convert solar power into electricity and stores this in a battery. The system is aided by a wind wheel which compensates for the lack of solar power at night and during months with less sunshine. At the heart of the system is a KACO off-grid inverter (model K 3000) which can provide a maximum power of 9 kW at short notice. The system is tailored to the requirements of the customer and is provided to the customer as a completely configured unit. The reCUBE is also available in versions tailored to the needs of the customer. The number of modules (6 or 9) can be specified by the customer to align the

Technical details

power of the PV generator to requirements. In addition, a bypass switch for connecting the reCUBE to an existing or future electricity network is provided. After the connection is made, the reCUBE checks the actual energy provision of the network and accepts the supply if the network cannot deliver any power.

Accessories In addition to the major components (modules ,inverters and assembly systems), an array of different electrical accessory products are also available, which we would like to introduce to you here. In our accessories portfolio: • Solar cables • Plug-in connector systems • Sockets When selecting products, we pay particular attention to long life, highest quality and simplicity of use so as to guarantee reliable and simple assembly.

71


Solar cables Our solar cable are made of tinned, fine-wired copper with a double jacket as an insulation layer. We supply our cables with different external diameters depending on the customer-specific requirement profile. All cables are TÜV certified. Strippable or bonded sheathing is a typical feature of our solar cables. The cables feature high temperature resistance and mechanical stability and are UV and ozone resistant. The expected service life for trouble-free use is 25 years. The cable varieties shown here only represent a selection of all available cables. We have decided to only offer our solar cables in black. There are two reasons for this: Firstly, black cables are more stable under exposure to UV light. With red and blue cables, UV light penetrates relatively deeply into the insulation. This means that the UV stabilizers in the material intervene to protect the base material.

Leads Cable diameter

With black cables, the pigments producing the black colour also help to absorb UV radiation. So UV radiation does not penetrate deep into the material. The consequence is long service life of the insulation. Perceived safety is another reason for colour coding between the positive and negative lines. Many inverters have been damaged by attaching the red cable to the positive terminal and the blue cable to the negative terminal. We therefore recommend always running a polarity check with the meter before connecting to the inverter. We see the lack of colour coding as a gain in safety during installation because the polarity must be determined with a measurement.

Plug-in connectors If you are not sure which connectors are required and you do not want to buy expensive specialist tools for every connector model, we can provide you with a solution: Butt connector set model no.: 50400 comprising: 1 x butt connector 4-6 mm² 1 x special shrink hose with hot-melt adhesive, resistant to UV light and weatherproof

The butt connector set is a low-cost alternative to the many different plug-in connectors available on the solar market for which expensive specialist tools must be purchased. Standard electricianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tools are all you need to work with the butt connector set.

A perfect and inexpensive connection in 3 steps: Step 1: Strip outer cable sheathing by about 14mm, the inner one by about 7 mm

Step 2: Push the shrink hose over the cable and place the butt connector into the crimper. Insert cable end and crimp. Repeat the process with the other end of the cable.

Step 3: Push the shrink hose over the crimping point and crimp until adhesive escapes at the ends of the shrink hose.
