About Cell Sweeper®
Cell Sweeper® is a fixed type solar panel automatic cleaning robot.
Cell Sweeper® can be installed on the existing and new solar panels. It removes dirt, soil, volcanic ash, yellow sand, fallen leaves and bird’s droppings, etc. that have accumulated on the panel with the various, purpose-specific brushes, cleaning water and wipers. Cell Sweeper® stabilizes the power generation efficiency of the solar panels even under the harshest environment.
Cell Sweeper® uses lightweight carbon material and places the linear motor outside the main body, which moves the solar panel up/down and left/right along the vertical and horizontal rails, so that the main body is kept lightweight and without electric wiring.
Because the main body is lightweight (approx. 7 Kg.) and no wiring is necessary, it’s installation is easy and the unit can withstand harsh weather conditions and long operational life.
Cell Sweeper® can be used even in the residential area during night, since the linear motor and specially designed resin slide bearings keep the cleaning operation quiet.
Two vertical carbon shafts are employed in combination with the linear motor, to achieve lightweight and quiet operation.
Select brush option
6 purpose-specific brushes are provided as options, depending of the types of the dist.
It is recommended to use snow removal brush in some areas during the winter season.
Automatic Sprinkling of Water
Cleaning water is required to remove some dirt. The main body contains a 4 Litre water tank and sprinkles the water automatically.
A set of wiper is equipped, to wipe the panel surface after cleaning by the brush and water.
Cell Sweeper® can be installed on the solar racks with up to 50m in width (typical for mega solar farms) with the wireless remote control system. Its solid rails withstand the expansion/shrinking and warping of the solar panel and racks due to heat/cold and keep the operation smooth.
