    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice covers a means of generating all-day thermal performance data for flat-plate collectors, concentrating collectors, and tracking collectors.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E44 on Solar, Geothermal and Other Alternative Energy Sources, this test method was withdrawn in November 2013. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement because it is believed that this document is no longer used and therefore not needed.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers a means of generating all-day thermal performance data for flat-plate collectors, concentrating collectors, and tracking collectors.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in the parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
