Renewable energies: electric linear actuators for the photovoltaic field

MecVel electric linear actuators are used also in the renewable energies industry, first of all in the photovoltaic field, for handling solar concentrators and panels.
Previewing growth and expansion of this market, MecVel has developed solutions respecting the environment and dedicated to optimize solar tracking processes, specifically:
• Photovoltaic panels and solar concentrators: inclination and rotation through electric linear actuators, customized according to application technical specifications


Electric linear actuators allow to rows of panels and concentrators cells the chasing of sun movements, for the whole day, adjusting continuously their position and orientation to storage the energy to be converted in electricity.
Rays, in fact, must be always perpendicular to the photovoltaic module surface to get the maximum efficiency.
Moreover, photovoltaic plants using electric linear actuators, applied to one or two rotation axes, increase the productivity when compared to fixed photovoltaic systems.
The proposed technology has the advantage of being performing, precise and at the same time eco-friendly, less impacting than a hydraulic or pneumatic system.
To the reliability of these linear motion devices must be added the strongness, which ensures a long life for the application, due to the fact that, having a static load higher than the dynamic one, they resist also in case of harsh climatic conditions as the wind.
