The Maxracker drive unit is powerful and compact. The unit is delivered to the field ready to plug in to power which can be 115, 208 or 230 single-phase as well as 208, 230 and 460 3-phase.
Grid power is where volume output comes in to play. The Maxtracker single-axis (oriented North-South) tracking system uses a single high-capacity linear actuator to move multiple rows of flatplate photovoltaic (PV) panels for up to approximately 150 kiloWatts of electricity fed directly into the grid. There are 250 units in operation without any controller failures with 30 more units going online by the end of June 2006.
