The proven reliability and long, maintenance free lifetime of LINAK actuators, even under rough conditions, make the company's TECHLINE electric actuator solutions particularly well suited for solar tracking applications.
Solar tracking is an ideal way to improve the efficiency of solar power plants. As the sun moves across the sky, an electric actuator system makes sure that the solar panels automatically follow and maintain the optimum angle to make the most of the sunbeams. In recent years LINAK’s TECHLINE team of engineers and consultants have given solar tracking their special attention.
With LINAK electrical actuator systems, excellent stepless positioning and feedback can be obtained to control a system - both digital and analogue. LINAK actuators can run on battery backup, with manual override also available.
The photovoltaic solar tracking system has an expected lifetime of 25-30 years and amortises itself within 4 years (on average). TECHLINE actuator systems can easily meet these demands and as LINAK electric actuators are maintenance free, a full return on investment can be expected.
