COMPLETE DOCUMENTATION, MAXIMUM CUSTOMISATION
The program proves to be simple and intuitive right from the initial design phases. Once in the program (just click on the button on the top right on the Sun Ballast website), start immediately by entering the exact address where the installation is to be located. After entering the height, roof type, obstacles and a 3D model of the building roof, proceed with the system characteristics by first choosing the modules and support structures. While in the case of panels all parameters can now be customised, from measurements through to power ratings, the most suitable structures can be selected directly from the Sun Ballast catalogue, which features the technical data sheets for all systems and the entire accessory range, from Cablowind to No-Flex. Compatibility between the panels, ballasts and accessories is determined automatically by the software, making this phase considerably quick and easy. Finally, a complete list of the materials and an analysis of overall system performance are produced by the platform and provided for users. For each change to plant components, the configurator updates these and all relevant documentation automatically.
RAPID SHARING AND VALIDATION
Calculation of shading factors, customisation of panels, obstacles and surfaces, fitting methods, sketches and direct access to all catalogues – these are just some of the functions available with the new Sun Ballast configurator, and they don’t end here. One of its main advantages is the option of easily sharing system data with the Sun Ballast technical department. Once all technical documentation has been obtained, it will be sufficient to request validation of the technical service directly from the software. The request will be forwarded automatically and quickly dealt with by one of our 15 specialists in the technical department, who provide thousands of installers and designers throughout the world with full support and expertise every day. The possibility of quickly accessing all technical documentation is also of considerable benefit for communicating with end clients, and thanks to a new app all documents can be shared directly via smartphone, making the project easy to consult at any time and from any place.
