Solar FlexRack Announces Self-Powered Tracker

[Youngstown, OH] Solar FlexRack, a division of Northern States Metals, now offers an integrated Self Powered Solution for its TDP Solar Trackers. The Self Powered system uses an integrated lithium iron phosphate battery, a 30 W PV module, a dc charger and a dc motor for tracker actuation, which enables independent row operation. The Self Powered Solution’s design incorporates one controller, battery and dc motor per module row. Self-powered designs reduce trenching and cable costs by eliminating the ac circuits otherwise needed to provide power to tracker motors and controls. Solar FlexRack’s Self Powered TDP Solar Trackers use Zigbee wireless communications to further reduce installation costs by eliminating hardwired networking in fielded tracker systems.
