The dual axis solar tracker (Model No.: V-SOL-2A2P) is an all-weather positioning platform used to point specialized instruments/sensors at the sun's movement across the sky. It is fully automatic and does not require a computer or software installation to control the tracking of Sun movement. The integrated GPS receiver automatically configures location and time data. An RS-232 port allows for software upgrades. The high- efficiency gear drive system requires no maintenance. The tough and distinctive cast aluminum housing has an integrated tripod stand with leveling feet. A side plate with mountings for a pyrheliometer is included as standard and a second side mounted plate can be fitted for an additional pyrheliometer.
