iPV Tracker

“iPV Tracker has been tested and verified in field operations, delivered more than 99% availability from global case studies. Also, the internationally renowned consulting firm, Black and Veatch, has issued their technical due diligence report for the iPV Tracker. Thus, we can say the technology of iPV Tracker is really mature.” - Chairman of BIG SUN, Summer Luo

Producing up to 30-100% more energy*

iPV Tracker tracks the Sun precisely, regardless of the season or the time of day, it is able to maximize the amount of solar photovoltaic energy production.

Features

iPV Tracker

iPV Tracker consists of uncomplicated components, which are easy to be maintained. Its mounting frame is able to accommodate most commercial modules. Integrated with iPVita monitoring system to get the real-time control, and enhance overall benefits. Also, iPV Tracker can be applied in different circumstances even in severe environments.

Easy Maintenance

iPV Tracker utilizes user-friendly design to lower component and O&M costs than other complex dual-axis solar trackers.

The universal joint is designed to rotate the module frame in two perpendicular directions.

The steel cables steer the module frame and also function as four anchor points.

The springs act as cushions for wind gusts.

High Reliability

iPV Tracker can be used in different environments.

Wind Resistant
Wind Resistant

High wind loads automatically stow to horizontal position (safety mode).

Backtracking
Backtracking

iPV Tracker is programmed automatically to adjust to an optimal angle according to location, season and time of day, to prevent mutual shading.

Dust Removal
Dust Removal

iPV Tracker can be activated to rotate at a tilted angle to remove excessive dust.

Snow Removal
Snow Removal

Rotation at a tilted angle removes snow accumulation on the PV modules.

Flood Avoidance
Flood Avoidance

The main motors away from the ground and higher than 1.5M at least.

Meeting the Needs

iPV Tracker can be applied as on-grid or stand-alone PV systems.

On-Grid

A grid-connected PV system consists of iPV Tracker is able to produce more energy throughout the day to gain more profits.

iPV Tracker On-Grid

Stand-Alone

iPV Tracker is able to make power production more constant throughout the day. In the morning and late afternoon, when electricity demand is high, power generation of iPV Tracker can meet commercial needs closely. The stand-alone system with batteries also provides a backup electricity supply.

iPV Tracker Stand-Alone

Foundations

Fast option is offered to speed up installation.

H-Piling
H-Piling

iPV Tracker can be installed rapidly without extensive land grading and concrete curing time.

Cross-Foundation
Cross-Foundation

iPV Tracker can be deployed on flat roofs or other ground sites.
