SUN – Fibre optic system for solar and photovoltaic panels
SUN™ protects solar and photovoltaic panels from attempted removal, joining the panels together with a fibre optic cable. The system allows the protection of very large photovoltaic fields with detection of the area subject to attack. SUN™ is simple, inexpensive and allows protection of hundreds of panels with a single cable. The fibre optic has a small diameter and is easily installed on solar panels. The fibre optic does not deteriorate, does not rust and lasts for many years. SUN is a mechanical system, that can not be seen or removed. Resistant to weather conditions and electromagnetic disturbances.
The system is divided into 2 main parts: fibre optic and the sensor.
The fibre optic "ties" the panels together, while the sensor generates the modulated light and analyzes the light received via the fibre optics.
Simplicity: Protection is effected with a glass multimode optical fibre that can be connected and joined using cold connectors without the use of splicing equipment.
Flexibility: The fibre optic has a small diameter, is easy to install and after installation, is virtually invisible.
Savings: SUN is a simple and economic system that allows the creation of fibre rings of 1200m to protect hundreds of panels together using a single cable.
Resistance: The fibre optic does not deteriorate, rust and is therefore hard wearing over time.
Protection: The fibre optic security system is excellent because of the reliability of the optical signal. In addition, SUN cannot be intercepted and is therefore not removable.
