Small-scale controllers with an integrated Modbus interface are ideal for controlling tracking systems.
Step motor drivers and frequency converters can be connected directly without any additional modules. Analog or incremental input channels are available for position detection.
The hybrid motor starter offers four functions for tracking the photovoltaic panels: forward running, reverse running, motor protection, and emergency stop.
In comparison to mechanical contactors, the motor starter is significantly more durable, saves space, and can be wired quickly.
Function block libraries
Phoenix Contact provides a comprehensive library with complete function blocks. This includes, among other features, complex blocks with DIN/NREL algorithms for solar altitude calculation and for monitoring the photovoltaic trackers.
It ensures that the photovoltaic panels are always aligned perfectly with the sun at any time of the day or year and provide maximum yield.
Efficient open and closed-loop control of solar tracking systems
Increase the yield from your photovoltaic system by systematically tracking photovoltaic panels.
