A unique tracker with self-reliant, self-aligned and self-protected mechanism
The technology innovations and engineering advancements Mechatron incorporated in the tracker design developed a technological marvel with unique features like auto-slippage capability, platform self-stow using eccentric platform mounting, auto-alignment, automatic tilt adjustment per wind conditions.
Specifically, in the event of abrupt wind loads the drive mechanism will slip thus protecting the mechanism from damage. Also in the case of a main brake failure, the tracker goes to a safe flat position without external power source by utilizing the platform’s gravity. The built-in nitrogen accumulator holds the system immobilize and protects it during the power-off event.
Last but not least in the event of power failure the fail-safe mechanism utilizing safety vales makes the large tracker’s platform to stow at a horizontal stationary position until power is restored. Since gravity is driving the self-stow movement of the platform, no need for additional diesel generators in the field to power up the electronics and hydraulics.
The tracker’s unique gearless design, a global innovation in the tracking industry, introduces ZERO backlash which makes the mechanism, unbreakable, durable and resilient.
