Spanish solar tracker maker Soltec today announced the launch of SFOne, a new solar tracker with a 1P dual row configuration.

The SFOne is designed for modules with 72 and 78 cell designs and is self-powered by a dedicated module which Soltec says results in lower operating cost.

Soltec already launched the SA Series 1P multi-row technology tracker, in 2009, and is now taking it up, with further advancements. Among them, Soltec highlights its ‘Dy-Wind’ technology, which offers a methodology for the design of wind-resistant tracking structures and the optimization of the diffuse boost system for low light conditions.

The tracking system also includes the StringRunner, which is Soltec’s proprietary standard component that combines fused PV source circuitry and wiring in the tracking torque tube, to a DC power switch. This technology allows the management of cables in the tube and the minimization of low voltage trenches.

According to the manufacturer, the installation of the device is similar to that of its SF7 tracker but it is simpler and faster. In addition, the company claims that the new product offers a 75% reduction in working time. “Additionally, [with the] SFOne, Soltec provides the ability to minimize imported components for manufacturing in each country where projects are developed, through Soltec factories, thereby reducing the carbon footprint, ”said the manufacturer.

The SFOne will be available in all markets where the company is present.
