Electricity from the sun using a photovoltaic (PV) system is available today! It is a technology full of promise and possibilities. It is the promise of a future with less pollution and less conflict. It is the possibility of a future with a more reliable energy supply and an end to squandering our precious natural resources.
Schools are embracing these promises and possibilities. Students and teachers want to know how PV systems work. Parents and taxpayers want more clean energy sources. What better way is there to accomplish all this than to put a PV system on a school?
Starting this year, schools can now combine a PV system with Heliotronics'EpiphanyTM series software and hardware to produce a Solar Learning LabTM environment for teachers and students. This enables schools to embrace a positive future, students and teachers to learn about solar energy, and parents and taxpayers to have another clean energy source.
Heliotronics' EpiphanyTM series offers user-friendly software and instrumentation hardware with lively real-time graphical displays. The array operation is displayed on a classroom computer or on multiple computers throughout the school. In addition to the energy produced by the array, a variety of other quantities, such as temperature and sunlight, are monitored, so that students can see how they affect the array operation.
The data acquisition systems range from simple and inexpensive systems that measure, display, and store sunlight, temperature, and energy to sophisticated systems with complete performance measurement capability and comprehensive meteorological instrumentation.
Our software is rich in graphical and technical content. Students can explore the displays, moving from simple to detailed displays. Static displays are included which show pictures of and explain the various array and data acquisition system components.
The Heliotronics data acquisition systems are now in production. To place an order or to learn more about applications, contact Sales at +1 781 749 9593. For detailed technical information, contact Technical Support at +1 781 646 8622.
