C140 Gearless CPV Tracker

The C140 Gearless CPV Tracker is Mechatron’s latest model within its “beetle” product series. It is build with the same rigid enforcement, strength and advanced hydraulic motion as the other products of that series but has the best possible accuracy of 0.05° in following the sun both azimuthally (around its horizontal axis) and elevationally (around its vertical axis).

A technological marvel inspired by nature

The design of the C140 Gearless CPV Tracker structure is inspired by the beetle’s exoskeleton, known for its superior strength to weight ratio. The structure is a combination of an elliptical tube design (similar to the wing of a wind turbine) and a simple lattice structure, which holds the PV panels.

The elliptical tube provides superior rigid enforcement and strength while the lattice structure transfers the structural load safely. This also makes for higher structural rigidity, better panel alignment and longer structural survivability.

A patented zero-backlash drive mechanism allows for smooth movement and operation. Its continuous slip capability under strong winds keeps the drive mechanism extremely robust and capable of surviving even hurricane conditions.

 

A Smart Thinking Tracker

The C140 Gearless CPV Tracker is equipped with an advanced telemetry system, which informs you of the machinery operations in real time.

 

Intelligent Control

The C140 tracker control system is developed and optimized for maximum power yield. It relies on a sun sensor, capable of monitoring the incidence of the sun, with precision of 0.01°. Smart control software continuously tracks the real production output and optimizes the motion path for maximum yield.

Mechatron Solar is confident that the C140 Tracker is the optimal CPV dual axis solar tracker solution in terms of design, construction, accuracy, and ease of installation, while achieving important economies of scale!

 

“Plug and Play”

The installation of the C140 Gearless CPV Tracker is quick and easy with the highest degree of standardization (plug & play). All work takes place on location, no need to hire experts. The photovoltaic panels are clipped on purlins with the Mechgrip™ Clamp, which is Mechatron Solar’s exclusive design providing anti-theft protection.

Each system operates independently and undergoes extensive testing prior to delivery to ensure conformity to Mechatron’s operating specifications.

The C140 Gearless CPV Tracker has been designed keeping in mind the optimization of the logistics and parts that go into it so that the installation and maintenance are easy and the transport costs kept to a minimum.
