Many homes, businesses and institutions are turning to solar power as a renewable source of energy generation. Installing a tracker lets you maximize your system by adjusting panels to capture the most solar power as the sun moves, and certain features boost their function.
Solar power slew drives enable trackers to support radial force, axial force and tilting simultaneously. These movements are necessary to change the angle and orientation of panels periodically.
Adjustments to solar power systems in response to a shifting sun help generate the maximum energy output. Slew drives accomplish this function through their gearbox configuration and overall design features.
Versions like double-row and cross roller raceways enable slew drives to manage the solar power system's heavier loads. The drive technology stems from worm gear principles, where rotating action in one gear facilitates the rotation of its perpendicular mate. Slew drives allow for low-torque inputs to support high-torque applications to create the necessary rotational movements.
Solar slew drives benefit from specific features, including:
