We hadn’t updated the Morgansolar.com site in a while, and there were some changes that were overdue. We’ve updated the product photos, descriptions and a few small details about the LSO. Most of these changes were to account for the transition from the triangle LSO design to the square LSO design.
This change allowed us to reduce dead space on the panels (the edges of the optic have a small moulding flange, but it added up) and makes assembly and manufacture easier. It also allowed us to use less aluminum per panel, so in general, it was a big improvement over the previous design. We had always planned to transition to this design, but there were some technical challenges we needed to solve first. When a supplier delay in September forced us to wait a couple of months, we used the time to tackle the challenges and migrated to the current design ahead of schedule.
The new Sun Simba HCPV based on the square LSO design looks like this:
And the product section has been updated to reflect the design changes.
We’re getting very close to having working prototypes of our other products, and we already have working prototypes of the Simba, so things are fairly exciting around here. There are some more photos on our Flickr page.
