Sprinkler system is an automation in module cleaning system designed for Bugalows, factories rooftops where the access to panel is not very easy.
Robotics is an automation in module cleaning system deployed for large utility level solar plants
Anti Dust shielding helps reducing cleaning cycles in the localities where the chemical dust is high.
This is applicable for the solar plants which are spread across large geography and water distribution is very important for module cleaning.
Solar panels are susceptible to mineral deposits of water used for cleaning the modules. The water used from boring is treated for right quality before splashed over the modules using these reverse osmotic (RO) water treatment plants
Specially designed storage tank for storing water to be used for module cleaning services
Airborne dust particles, sticky tree and plant sap, lichen, soot and bird droppings are just a few of the things that can contribute to a build-up of dirt on your panels. Accumulation creates shading and therefore will prevent sunlight reaching the cells. This results in poor system performance, loss of efficiency and a loss of financial return for the owner and investor of solar energy. Various reports mention losses of up to 10% to 25% in electricity generation as a result of dirt. Most of the time modules are not cleaned regularly due to
Sprinko is water-sprinkler based programmable & automated Module cleaning systems helps module cleaning without getting into any inhibitions, and maximizes production from solar panels. Our system offers state-of-the-art automation, Customised for specific soiling environment. System once installed requires minimal maintenance & highly useful where the available water is with high impurities.
Sprinko is highly scalable and adaptable to any number & type of panels placed under mixed layouts, be it small Bungalow, factory rooftop or large utility scale project .
The Central unit packaged with various automated facilities like
It is suggested to operate Sprinko system during night or early morning, when solar panels are relatively cold & moist , for 15 to 25 minutes. Customer are facilitated to set convenient cleaning schedule through micro-controller and allow module cleaning done unattended.
• Improved Electricity Generation

Module cleaning Robots are indigenously designed and manufactured by M/s Jetsons Robotics Pvt Ltd, in India
M/s PlasmaBerry Solar Pvt Ltd is a sole distributor of M/s Jetsons Robotics for their module cleaning robots in India.
*Peak Utilisation of the cleaning frequency is selected such a way that Robot is used for min 4 Hrs per day for min 26 days of a month.**Gross Merchandise MW is total amount of MW that needs to be cleaned in 3 years taking into consideration frequency of cleaning. Modules are assumed to be of 300 Watts# The cost of Robot mentioned above is indicative and has variances based on size of the plant, cleaning frequency and % utilization. It also does not take care of other cost associated with module cleaning like operating manpower, water, electricity etc.
•High Quality & uniform cleaning quality
•Offers higher no. of cleaning cycles per month hence higher power generations
•Operates on chargeable batteries, which can be charged using solar energy during day
•Conservative usage of water using combination of water-based and waterless cleaning cycles
•Ease of portability, mobility, serviceability and maintainability.
To create customer experience, Plasmaberry has launched Center of Excellence Partner program. For more details , look out for the section Partner Program or download COEPP document.
Jetsons Robotic module cleaning system offers variety of models that supports various needs of the customer.
Jetsons Robotics has devised new family of Robots which are modular to adjust various Row heights depending on customer site requirements. Current model supports 2M, 4M, 6M without losing any of it's flavor of portability.
Standard robotics system of 2M row height is fixed on movable chassis. The chassis height can be selected based on the Row height requirements of the specific solar project. Entire chassis moves on the Module table and cleans 2-M height in one pass.
Water distribution system involves pumping unit, HDPE pipeline and quick release valves.
Reverse Osmotic water treatment system is custom-made packaged unit to treat all types of water problems. It can be easily installed for diverse residential, commercial and industrial application. The system is designed for TDS ( total dissolved solids ) of 1500 ppm. However, the system can be redesigned as per the water analysis provided by the client.
The standard sizes available are 500 / 1000 / 1500 / 2000 Ltr/hr.
We use storage tanks made out of Zincalume sheets for the water storage, for module cleaning services.
Zincalume steel has an alloy coating with 150 / 1100 gram/m2 coating equally on both sides of the coated strip. These sheets worldwide have set the standard for corrosion resistance and long life and are manufactured as per Australian Standard AS 1397:2002, American Standard ASTM A792M and Indian Standards IS 15961:2012 & ISO 9364. Zincalume steel has the following major advantages over Zinc Galvanized sheets in the same environmental conditions: Zincalume steel delivers outstanding durability, with a lifetime up to four times that of ordinary galvanized steel against corrosion.
The sizes of the tank are custom built
