QUINT "ORing" Redundancy Module for Redundant DIN rail DC Power Supplie...

The QUINT ORing redundancy module from Phoenix Contact is a perfect solution for machine building or the process industry. The QUINT ORing uses Auto Current Balancing (ACB) technology to ensure that redundant DIN rail DC power supplies are load-sharing evenly, which results in these power supplies being balanced. ACB technology - coupled with load current monitoring, remote diagnostics and visual indications - ensures maximum reliability in redundant power systems.

ACB technology automatically and symmetrically distributes the load current without regard to effects, such as temperature drift. With a balanced current draw, lifetime expectancy of each power supply may double. The Quint ORing redundancy module displays the status of the load sharing, generating an alarm in cases when the module nears a critical state or the redundancy is defeated.

Solar Car Charger Panel Tracks The Sun

WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- The summer of 2012 has been scorching hot. The heat at times has been practically unbearable. In Monday's Extra Mile report, there is one advantage to the rays emitting from the sun these days: free energy for electric vehicles.
If you drive along Route 355 in Bethesda, you may have noticed tall, futuristic looking panels high in the sky along the road. They're called solar car chargers, giving electric vehicle owners a way to refuel cars with clean energy . . .

See the article and more at

Below is a bit of information from the manufacturer, Advanced Technology and Research Corporation at

The Solar Car Charger incorporates a 1,410 watt sun tracking array to supplement electric vehicle charging requirements. Standard Level II Car Chargers are mounted to the base of the tracking pole and conveniently situated to service two vehicles at once.

Sun Tracking provides up to 30% more power which is converted to AC and fed into the utility grid for generation credit. Car chargers are similarly connected to the local power grid and maintain 100% availability.

The solar power production and power suppied to EV's is monitored for a complete energy system accounting and analysis and it is available to the owner over the internet.
