About SPI

At Solar Power International you can meet everyone who’s anyone in solar energy in North America, like installers and contractors, engineering firms, architects, builders and developers, investors and financiers, i.e. the full range of industry experts, leaders, and professionals. There are ample networking opportunities and over 100 education sessions throughout the event, including sessions right on the show-floor. This robust educational program includes innovative sessions, in-depth workshops and sponsored trainings. And above all you’ll find Kipp & Zonen there to help you resolve your day-to-day solar monitoring issues.

Why meet Kipp & Zonen?

You probably know us for our high quality instruments for solar radiation measurement and maybe also for our atmospheric science equipment. Our Smart SMP series pyranometers are a perfect match for solar energy systems. These pyranometers have digital signal processing and interfaces optimized for industrial data acquisition and control systems. Apart from pyranometers we can also offer SHP1 pyrheliometers combined with a SOLYS sun tracker. As an affordable alternative for this combination Kipp & Zonen developed RaZON+, the all-in one solar radiation monitoring system. But there’s more.

Check out our latest developments, the DustIQ soiling monitoring system and the RT1 rooftop PV monitoring system, described below.

Have you already heard about DustIQ, our new, real-time soiling monitoring system?

Everyone knows that clean solar panels yield optimal results. DustIQ, based on unique optical soiling measurement (OSM), tells you when it’s time to clean your solar panels. This is not only very cost-effective since you no longer need to clean them at regular intervals, but it also enables you to maximize your plant’s performance ratio.

DustIQ is what the solar industry has been waiting for. The system is really impressive, especially if you compare it to traditional systems using a reference PV panel as such a reference panel needs to be kept clean all the time. DustIQ can be cleaned in one go with the solar panels, it does not need extra maintenance.

DustIQ helps you decide when to clean your solar power plant. Is saves costs and ensures maximum performance.

RT1 rooftop PV monitoring system.

In 2017 we developed RT1 the new smart monitoring system for rooftop PV. A clear advantages of RT1 is that it’s easy to install because of its unique design and plug-in temperature sensor. What’s more, it is low-priced.

Welcome to booth #2986!

The Kipp & Zonen team will be there for you. We will be pleased to answer your questions and assist you on any solar monitoring issues you may have. Should you want to find out more on DustIQ, then stop by for an interactive demonstration. Of course you are also welcome for a friendly chat.

We’d like you to share your views on (the future of) solar monitoring with us. It’s your feedback that enables us to meet the expectations of the solar industry!
