SPI 2016 - Grupo Clavijo is presenting the most reliable and efficient trackers for the global photovoltaic market at Solar Power International 2016.

The Spanish company Grupo Clavijo will once again be attending the Solar Power International trade show (from 12 to 15 September) in La Vegas (NV, USA), with the latest generation of its advanced single-axis trackers.

The Spanish company Grupo Clavijo will once again be attending the Solar Power International trade show (from 12 to 15 September) in La Vegas (NV, USA), with the latest generation of its advanced single-axis trackers.

After more than 12 years of work by its entire engineering and R&D team, aimed at developing leading single-axis technology, Grupo Clavijo is now able to offer the global photovoltaic sector the SP160 (single-row) and SP1000 (multi-row) models, whose outstanding features include their optimal reliability (demonstrated in over 16 installations completed), and their reliability/efficiency in adverse weather conditions (from -5ºC to +50ºC and at altitudes of up to 1000 m), thanks to the circuit board and microprocessor which incorporate advanced wind control software that enables pre-flag positions, thus ensuring the tracker's structural integrity.
In an effort to continuously improve the performance of its trackers, so that they are increasingly cost effective for developers and EPC contractors, Grupo Clavijo has also developed a new spherical bearing for its single-axis trackers which, addition to the benefits already found in the previous model (no maintenance and easy installation), now also include a faster assembly time (as it is made up of fewer pieces), the capacity to absorb a working angle greater than 60 degrees with structural systems that reduce the centre of mass and decrease the consumption required for movement, and greater stress resistance. The manufacturing quality has recently been acknowledged by the certification it obtained for the execution of steel structures for the structural components that it designs and manufactures, according to UNE-EN 1090-1, with execution class EXC2, certifying the quality of its structural calculations for the sizing of components, its factory production control and the performance of those components.
All of these innovations will be exhibited at stand #2560 in the Las Vegas Convention Center in September.
Grupo Clavijo has production centres in Spain, the USA, Brazil, Chile and South Africa. It has recently opened new offices in Miami and San Francisco (USA), in addition to the ones it already has in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Chile, Brazil and its corporate headquarters in Viana (Navarra, Spain). This global presence allows it to offer a comprehensive service in any country in the world, where its trackers are present with over 1.2 GW installed.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
