If you want the most from your PV (photovoltaic) array, then you want the sun
to be at high noon all the time. This simple, reliable tracker keeps the PV
array precisely fixed on the sun at all times, just as though it were high noon.
The result: 20 to 40% more power than from a comparable fixed array
depending on weather and latitude, an investment
that quickly pays for itself. Wattsun trackers need no seasonal adjustment, are
available to fit all commercial PV modules and contain no freon or other harmful
Many owners don't equip their PV arrays with solar trackers even though
tracking will greatly increase the power output. The experience has been that
passive trackers (which typically use the expansion of harmful freon gas to
provide collector movement), have serious limitations: they do not reset quickly
enough to fix the panels on the early morning sun, they are often overpowered by
the wind and they do not work well at low temperatures. Hence, their pointing
accuracy is not precise and (because they are single axis) they require seasonal
adjustments to maximize power output.
The Wattsun Solar Tracker is different. Its revolutionary solid-state sensor finds the maximum sun available in the sky, even under overcast skies, from sunup to sundown. Using dependable motor-driven actuators it keeps the panel array pointed accurately at the sun at all times. For a Wattsun tracked array, it's high noon every hour the sun shines.
It makes sense to equip every array with a Wattsun tracker. It will pay for
itself in a short period of time, and its simplicity and durability will provide
long-term, low-maintenance performance with thousands of extra watts during the
lifetime of the array. Wattsun Trackers maximize power production without the
shortcoming characteristics of freon trackers.
STANDARD FRAME SIZES
The easy-to-install Wattsun solar tracker features rugged anodized aircraft-quality aluminum frames that come in standard array sizes ranging from 2 panels to 24 panels. Larger sizes are available on special order.
The Wattsun tracker comes complete with all of the hardware needed to mount it and the collector array on your pole.
