Soltec introduced SF7, its next generation horizontal single-axis solar tracker. The objective of this launch is to increase competitive advantages for customers, and it has found success by maximizing tracker yield potential and site-filling options while also reducing costs.
By eliminating all array-gaps on the tracker over pile-mounting locations, SF7 enables up to 5 percent greater MW per acre than other trackers. Yield is further enabled with TeamTrack asymmetric backtracking control of individual trackers, and a tracking arc of 120°+.
The SF7 tracker equipment provides the market-highest assembly tolerances to construction variables including steep-slope (17% grade NS), short-steps and irregular site boundaries (<48 meters), and terrain contours (+/- 0.20 meters’ pile-to-pile). These features result in simple installation where others simply cannot install without additional cost. They reduce the cost aspects of civil works and site preparation, and reduce the disruption of natural terrain.
The SF7 short-tracker design with two-up portrait module configuration enables greater site-fill options, and results in double-wide aisles between tracker rows that facilitate maintenance and vehicle passage, and results in the lowest piles-per-MW spec on the market.
The self-powered SF7 tracker achieves the lowest cost of operational power thanks to the unique PV Series Power Supply that leverages tremendous PV array power availability to supply the remarkably low power demand of tracker drive, control, and communications.
Installation time-saving is at the heart of SF7 innovation. It is evidenced in comparison with a leading competitor: 54% fewer piles-per-MW, 15% less parts count, and 58% fewer screw type connections. That all adds up to faster installation.
