A Remote Control (RC) Solar-panel cleaning dusting arm,
controlled by software from a PC or mobile phone.
The unit which costs $387 and a 10 year warranty not
including the replaceable arm, is fastened to the solar
panels somewhere in the middle of the roof.
A. A rag holder
at the end of
B. A folding arm, and
C. A telescopic antena with a low resolution camera.
The arm works in three stages:
a. Storage: The arm and camera are folded in, so as not
be affected by the elements (wind, sun or dust).
b. Loading: The arm reaches off the roof and down to
loading platform where a rag is attached. (Or a rope with
a tiny elevator is used for bringing the rag or a "rag
magazine" to the end of the roof, where it then loads
with the rag.
c. Cleaning: A human controls the unit from the PC. If it
a "cleaning company" the unit is run from a mobile phone
with a code. The rag keeps the arm from scratching the
panels, and cleans them from dust.
