Tracking the sun with parabolic troughs

Precise position detection for high efficiency

The solution

For high efficiency, all troughs in the parabolic trough power plant have to be continuously adjusted to follow the sun's path and be focused exactly on the receiver tubes. Our BML magnetic encoders are located right on the rotating shaft and allow for precise position detection.

The features

  • Direct measurement
  • Precise position detection
  • Determining reference points
