SunMizer Increases Solar Power Harvest When Installed ONLY on Shaded Solar Modules.
Xandex Inc. and European subsidiary Xandex B.V. will introduce the new SunMizer(TM) shade mitigation tool for photovoltaic modules to the European solar energy industry at Intersolar Europe 2010 in Munich, Germany, June 9-11 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre, in booth A4-181.
SunMizer is a shade mitigation tool that increases solar energy harvest by recovering power that is lost when shade falls on a solar module. By isolating the shaded solar module(s) from the rest of the modules in a series connected string, SunMizer prevents the shaded panel from drawing down the power output of the non-shaded modules. At the same time, SunMizer harvests power from the shaded module and contributes that power to the string. The result is recovered power that would normally be lost due to shade.
“SunMizer is a true plug-and-play tool offering installers a simple and reliable approach to increasing power for systems with shade exposure,” said Tim Kubes, Solar Products Sales and Marketing Director for Xandex Inc. “With selective installation only on shaded modules, SunMizer costs less to install and requires less than 10% of the components of competing systems resulting in the best value for our customers.”
SunMizer is UL 1741 and GS/ CE safety certified and ships with a limited 20 year warranty that includes a provision for replacement labor. SunMizer is available in 48 VDC and 80 VDC models that make it ideal for use with nearly all mono and multi-crystalline solar modules. For more information visit http://www.sunmizer.com
