Align Fresnel mirrors with the angle of the sun

Higher efficiency unlocked by precise and reliable angle measurement

The solution

For maximum efficiency, the individual of flat mirrors that form a Fresnel collector should simultaneously direct the sun to a single focal point. Balluff's inclination sensors reliably ensure precise tracking, providing an absolute position indication - even after a power failure. This eliminates the need to "home" the system after a power loss, meaning that energy production can be resumed in a shorter time.

The features

  • Detects the change in angle with respect to the horizontal
  • High accuracy over a measurement range up to 360° (one rotation)
  • Compact, robust metal housing enables simple installation
  • Absolute measuring signal eliminates the need to "home" the system to find a reference
