Dual (2 Axis) Tracker Controller

by | Sep 9, 2017 |

Wind Protection

  • Wind protection algorithm adjusts position to a predetermined safe position
  • Share wind speed over the network thereby reducing the number of anemometers needed
  • Simulate wind speed for easy testing

Limit Stops

  • 2 mechanical limit switch inputs per axis to prevent over travel
  • 2 programmable soft limits to limit over travel and provide redundancy
  • Automatically re-calibrate based on touching lower limit stop

Operation Features

  • 0.5 degrees accuracy
  • Embedded NREL’s SPA Solar Position Algorithm
  • Environment Operating Capabilities (-40 to 70C)
  • Auto Calibration feature re-calibrates the tracker each morning
  • Environmentally & Electrically certified for world wide deployment

Sensors

  • Hall feedback
  • Analog Inclinometers 4-20mA, 0-5 VDC , 0-10 VDC & Special Configurations
  • (Optional) Solar MEMS

Communications

  • Modbus RTU & TCP
  • Connect seamlessly with all major HMI/SCADA software (including Wonderware, Intellution, Citect, Allen Bradley)
  • Remote monitoring & Control through GRIDview cloud
  • Data Logging, Alarming & Messaging

Actuators / Motors

  • Brushed & brushless
  • Slew or linear actuators
