Higher efficiency unlocked by precise and reliable angle measurement
Generating peak thermal energy in parabolic trough power plants requires the troughs to be well-aligned with the constantly changing position of the sun. 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.
- 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
