XCPC: Patented & Solar Ratings & Certification Corporation (SRCC) Certified Advanced Solar Thermal Collector High Temperature—Non-tracking XCPC Concentrating Parabolic Collectors for up to 400o F Works Efficiently in Both Direct and Indirect Sunlight Allowing for Installations Worldwide Displaces Natural Gas and Electricity Reduces Emissions and Demand Charges 5191 Shawland Road, Jacksonville, FL, USA 32254 www.articsolar.com 904-513-4638 Bill@articsolar.com High Temperature XCPC Solar Thermal Collector The XCPC is a Non-Imaging Concentrating Collector (NICC) that pairs a custom evacuated tube solar collector with an external non-imaging reflector in a non-tracking, roof or ground mountable system.

This combination enables the XCPC East/West design to cost effectively achieve temperatures in excess of 200oC (392°F) at more than 50% efficiency – which current market incumbents cannot attain without costly tracking. The concentration ratio is 1.4 meaning the absorber receives an additional 40% of the suns energy allowing the collector to achieve high temperatures. The XCPC collector power rating is 1.235 KW. Perhaps the greatest advantage of the patented NICC over competing high temperature solar thermal technologies (trough and linear Fresnel) that can achieve 1200 Celsius and higher temperatures is the simple to deploy collector design. Other technologies are high profile (up to 50ft), needing large land areas to be effective and have tracking mechanisms requiring costly maintenance. Aesthetics are also a concern – the NICC is the only high temperature collector to be configured in an extremely low profile
