ASI Releases New Solar Cell SCP 44

Solar cell can support outdoor equipment, including outdoor gate applications

Carlisle, PA – Automation Systems Interconnect, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of their new solar cell SCP 44.

This extremely durable and easy to position SCP 44 solar cell provides a 9 V DC power source to thru beam photoelectric sensors and also enables a direct connection between the cell and the signal emitter through one easily connected 6 m cable. That one cable eliminates the need to install many unsightly and hard-to-manage cable connections to the signal emitter, all the while providing power to the unit as a whole. In addition, the solar cell can increase battery life by up to 2 years, a distinct and critical advantage for outdoor gate applications. The sensor cell also makes it unnecessary to install a moving cable for the sensitive edge and replaces the photocells that are normally mounted in the internal part of the automatic gate.
