New dedicated range of solar tracking actuators
Monday, 01 October 2012 06:00
The overwhelming requirement in the solar tracking industry is reliability, precision and durability to assure maximum operational efficiency and minimal downtime. ZIMM has committed significant research and development resources to establish high credentials in this regard.
Simple design and the use of lean manufacturing techniques however have enabled ZIMM to achieve an excellent price to performance ratio for these products that are also very easy to install.
From a mechanical standpoint its ZSA screw driven actuators are robust and include the highest quality components. They are sealed for life and designed to provide more than 20 years of reliable service with minimal or no maintenance. In common with the company’s popular Screw Jacks, ZSA actuators are assembled individually from stock, standard components providing short delivery times.
What makes the ZSA total fit-for-purpose however is the dedicated electronics that are integrated into the body of the actuator and the complementary software that has been developed to control and network the system; it is suitable for both photovoltaics and solar mirror arrays.
The ZSA product programme comprises three sizes for fixed, single axis or two axis installation. In addition to their prime use in solar tracking, ZSA are eminently suitable for use on satellite systems, building facades, or for wind energy and door actuation.
