The SF7 Tandem reduces the number of motors and controllers by half, which reduces costs. A 1.80 metre high cardan joint allows vehicles and cleaning robots to pass through.

Soltec, a leading company in the manufacture and supply of solar trackers worldwide, presents its SF7 Tandem tracker. It is the first tracker on the market to be linked every two rows in a 2-in-vertical (2V) configuration. This model is an implementation of its standard solar tracker, the SF7. The features of this tracker combine the best of 2V trackers with the best of two-row trackers, while reducing installation and operating costs.

The SF7 Tandem has a cardan shaft to connect the two trackers, which is installed at a height of 1.8 metres, allowing vehicles to pass between the aisles. In this way, maintenance and cleaning of the plant can be carried out more quickly, easily and effectively regardless of weather and climate conditions.

"With the SF7 Tandem we want to guarantee the best service to our customers by reducing costs and installation times," explains Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec. "This tracker maintains the best features of our standard SF7 with the performance of the double row solar trackers," he explains.

This two-row linked tracker model also features TeamTrack 2.0 to maximise solar plant generation. This system includes asymmetrical backtracking that takes into account slope and terrain characteristics, time of day and season. Soltec's TeamTrack allows for cost reduction in projects with non-uniform slopes or terrain. This system is maintenance-free.

With 20% fewer parts, 45% fewer pins and 50% fewer motors in the tracker controller than a 1V tracker, the SF7 Tandem is faster to install. This results in reduced costs and installation times.
