Solar tracking

Make the most of the sun with optimal solar tracking

Although we can't influence periods of sunshine, we can make better use of them. With our control systems for single-axis or dual-axis trackers for horizontal and/or zenithal tracking of solar modules, you can significantly improve performance. Tracking is calculated using a high-precision astronomic algorithm (accuracy 0.0003°). The core of our tracking solution is the SIMATIC S7-1200 controller in combination with the ready-to-use solar tracking toolbox. This library reduces your engineering effort and easily enables modular and scalable applications.

Our automation solution, your benefits

  • Efficient and fast engineering of the entire automation task in the TIA Portal reduces time and costs by up to 30%
  • Reach your goal faster with the fully programmed and tested function blocks of the free solar tracking toolbox
  • Fast, precise, and reliable adjustment of the tracking axes thanks to proven SINAMICS V20 frequency converters
  • Simplified commissioning and remote diagnostics by means of the integrated web server
  • Easy communication among all the components of a solar farm thanks to integrated concepts and open interfaces
  • Solutions for single-axis and multi-axis tracking control of photovoltaic and CSP plants
  • Increased energy yield through backtracking function
