SPI 15 - Optimum Tracker will announce stepping up of its development at SPI 2015

New York, 09/07/2015 - After opening an office in San Diego CA, Optimum Tracker, a company specialized in solar trackers for utility PV plants, will strengthen its presence on the American market at SPI 2015

New O-Track HZ structure at Solar Power International 2015

After the opening up of offices in South Africa, Chile and Mexico, Optimum Tracker is now looking again towards the United States with the creation of a subsidiary in New-York. Thanks to this strategic step in its international growth, the company will expand its solar structure design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance operations over North America. Developers, EPCists and the general public will be able to discover the company's latest products and services at the Solar Power International 2015 show in Anaheim CA. The new O-Track HZ tracker will be on display, equipped with Solar Frontier's latest generation Thin-film CIS modules, at booth 6630.

A new and exclusive patent
Optimum Tracker will also take the opportunity of SPI 2015 to showcase its new Opti-Sky Sensor© patented product. This particularly innovative system makes it possible to increase even more the efficiency of photovoltaic plants. Thanks to an elaborate system of sensors and a powerful algorithm developed in-house, the tracking of the PV panels is now optimized in real time according to the sky's brightness. An innovation which is directly part of the leitmotiv followed by Optimum Tracker: a continuous process to improve PV-plants' performances for its customers.

Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
