Here is a quick update about Solmetric and what we have been working on:
SunEye 210 Update
The new SunEye 210 started shipping in February 2010, and has been very popular both for new users and users of the SunEye 110. The electronic compass, level, and inclinometer give a new level of convenience and capability for solar site evaluations.
We have now released a video of the SunEye 210 that is available on the Solmetric web site. The video demonstrates how to use the SunEye as well as previews the new features that the SunEye 210 offers. To view the video and information on purchasing the SunEye 210, click here.
Solmetric iSV iPhone App
SolmetriciSVThe Solmetric iSV Sun Viewer application uses the iPhone camera to provide an "augmented reality" view of the sun paths at your location. This allows you to make a quick assessment of the timing and impact of shading obstructions. Solmetric iSV can be used for evaluation of solar access for solar energy systems, landscaping, agriculture, photography, event planning, or real estate assessment. In the camera view, the user can see how the obstructions interact with the sun path. Where an obstruction overlaps a sun path, shading will occur.
The app can be downloaded from the iTunes Store. For more information click here.
PV Designer
Solmetric PV Designer is available for use through the SunEye desktop software. PV Designer enables you to lay out solar PV modules on a roof surface and calculates the energy production for your system. Results are corrected for the impacts of partial shading, using your Skylines from the Solmetric SunEye.
A 30-day free trial is available through the SunEye desktop software.
