Product Briefing Outline: The TITAN TRACKER 122-219 ATR PRECISION is a new concept in solar trackers and has been developed for flat-plate and high concentrating photovoltaics  CPV). It breaks with the usual trend, based on mounted-pole systems, and is claimed to offer improved benefits during the whole life-cycle of the installation.

Problem: Accuracy is a critical parameter for high concentrating photovoltaics, but also reliability and cost-effective. Many two-axis sun trackers do not cover the whole angular field in the zenithal tracking properly and therefore they do not get the maximum performance with double-axis tracking.

Solution: TITAN TRACKER provides adjustable accuracy, better than 0.01 degrees, thanks to the stiffness and rigidity of its 3D structure, geometry based on five supports and the location of the motor gears in the outer sides (with a long lever). TITAN TRACKER is claimed to be the only tracker that makes a continuous tracking in azimuth for CPV applications.

Applications: Flat-plate and high concentrating photovoltaics.

Platform: The foundations are minimal due to there being not bending moments (such as in mounted-pole systems) and hence important savings in materials (up to 35% less concrete and 85% less steel) can be achieved. Formwork is not needed, thereby reducing the need of specialized staff. Wind speed up to 125Km/h at any position. The tracker has a patented mechanism, which allows for adaptation to possible irregularities in the track, thereby avoiding any possible errors due to uneven surface. The structure is composed of cold-formed sections of steel using screws and galvanized in continuous process. All components have been designed and tested according the most demanding international standards.

Availability: April 2008 onwards.
