Programmable power supplies test environmentally friendly vehicle roof systems

Z+ Series

Sun roofs have provided drivers and passengers with fresh air and light for many years. Like almost every aspect of automotive manufacturing, technology is dominating even roof systems, as they are now referred to. The weight has been reduced dramatically to improve fuel efficiency through the use of polycarbonate materials and they can now provide solar power. Cells embedded in the glass panel operate the vehicle’s ventilation fan to extract heat. This avoids having to turn on the A/C at maximum when first entering the car, again saving fuel and reducing CO2 emissions. continue reading »
