Tamil Nadu-based Sleepwalkers has launched the Zero Dust-BOLT, an automatic robotic system for waterless mud elimination from photo voltaic panels. The system operates with out rails and is appropriate for ground-mounted and rooftop/RCC installations, together with mounted, seasonal tilt, and single-axis trackers.
The corporate claims that the robotic system achieves 99% cleansing effectivity, making it perfect for PV installations in deserts. It’s out there in automated and semi-automated fashions, providing dry, moist, or hybrid cleansing strategies.
In keeping with Anil Zinjurke, chief advertising officer of Sleepwalkers, the robotic is powered by an onboard lithium battery and may journey 2 km to three km on a single cost. It might clear greater than 2 MW a day, relying on website circumstances. Set up is simple, as no extra railing is required.
“The automated fashions that pay for themselves from the inbuilt photo voltaic panels. Within the pick-and-place mannequin, there’s a battery swapping facility,” stated Zinjurke. “Our moist cleansing robots scale back water consumption in half, in comparison with typical guide moist cleansing.”
The PV cleansing robotic is designed to deal with panel-to-panel irregularities as much as 25 mm and land slope undulations as much as 15 levels. It has a excessive torque motor, industrial-grade controller, SCADA and cloud connectivity, and climate monitoring.
Zero Dust-BOLT robots are UL-certified and at present deployed in practically 300 MW of PV capability, in numerous sizes from 2 meters to eight meters.
