S140 Gearless Azimuth Tracker for parking lots

Azimuth trackers are ideal for parking lots – added production, lowest cost, and high clearance.

A technological marvel inspired by nature

The design of the Mechatron Gearless Trackers 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 strength while the lattice structure transfers the structural load safely. This also makes for higher structural rigidity, better panel alignment and longer structural life.

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.

 

"Astronomical" Performance

The tracking system motion of the S140 Gearless Azimuth Tracker is based on the accuracy of the astronomical algorithm. This makes for maximum solar radiation intake even when it is cloudy, better quality and up to 30% greater energy production, ensuring greater benefit per unit of installed capacity in comparison to conventional systems.

A Smart Thinking Tracker

The S140 Gearless Azimuth Tracker is equipped with an advanced telemetry system, which informs you of the machinery operations in real time.

"Plug and Play"

The installation of the S140 Gearless Azimuth Tracker evolution 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 S140 Gearless Azimuth 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.
