Sandia National Laboratories, the operator of the NSTTF, required a cutting edge solution that would provide updated data connectivity for the site's solar array of 218 heliostats (individually-guided mirrors that reflect concentrated sunlight to a target located at various positions on a 200 ft tall tower.
The NSTTF is the only test facility of its kind in the United States, providing experimental engineering data specializing in testing solar technologies, such as concentrating sunlight to heat a fluid that generates thermal energy to generate electricity.
Prime Core Systems is contracted to handle Sandia's NSTTF PLC implementation, and was responsible for conducting the preliminary testing during December 2008 to prove Telkonet Series 5's suitability.
