Schletter to Introduce New Tracker at Intersolar

Traditional tracking systems use hydraulic dampers to mitigate the vibrations and torsional forces caused by the wind; however the Schletter system has self-locking mechanism that allows it to lock elements automatically as soon as the rows stop moving.

Tracking System Mounted Racks

Scheletter Group, a manufacturer of solar mounting systems, is introducing a new single-axis tracking system at intersolar. The new tracker system touts to not only allow a ground cover ration but also be stable as a fixed mounting system.

According to Dr Cedric Zapfe, who along with his team developed the system, said, “For the first time ever, this tracker combines the benefits of our fixed mounting systems with the additional yields of a tracking system.” “Easy assembly and servicing were also key aspects when designing the system.”

Unlike traditional trackers the new tracker doesn’t require hydraulic dampers and completely avoids dangerous ‘galloping effect’ under wind loads.

To make it self-sufficient, in terms of power, each row has a dedicated PV panel with a battery pack that ensures great possible reliability of operation. The system is controlled through wireless technology which completely obviates expensive wiring for both power supply and communication.

Traditional tracking systems use hydraulic dampers to mitigate the vibrations and torsional forces caused by the wind; however the Schletter system has self-locking mechanism that allows it to lock elements automatically as soon as the rows stop moving.

The new system developed can withstand wind speeds of up to 260 kilometers per hour thus ensuring maximum safety.

According to statement released by the company the mechanical connections between the rows have been deliberately avoided to ensure smooth maintenance and servicing work.
