Maximum precision, even in the desert

Solar-thermal power plants currently deliver power outputs of 100 megawatts or more. To generate this energy, many thousands of mirrors need to be aligned precisely and continuously aligned with the sun. This requires sensors that not only have accurate control, but also withstand the extreme environmental conditions, for example, in desert regions. We have developed measurement systems with which you can reliably detect these movements and realise efficient plants.
