iTracker
THE INTELLIGENT TRACKER TO MAXIMIZE PV OUTPUT AND OPERATIONS
iTrackerTM, the intelligent PV tracker, can deliver annual energy gain up to 30% vs traditional fixed structures.
Thanks to its continuous tables, it optimizes the use of available land and maximizes the yield of investors.
With iTrackerTM Soltigua bring to the PV market their many years of sun tracking experience in the highly demanding concentrating solar thermal industry.
iTrackerTM has many innovative features:
- Single-row tracking: no tracker mechanical components in the corridors between tables
- Long & optimized tracker structure: up to 90 PV modules per tracker to optimize drive costs
- User friendly size: 1-module-portrait/2-module-landscape configuration to simplify installation and O&M
- Maintenance free components: minimized O&M costs
- Balanced design: improved mechanical accuracy and reduced mechanical internal stress
