Voyager is a next generation, single-axis tracker that provides industry-leading ease of installation, performance, and reliability, driving the lowest total installed cost. The FTC team that brings the Voyager tracker to market does so with the experience of designing and installing GWs of third-party single-axis tracker projects in addition to delivering over 1 GW of FTC Solar's AP90 tracker.

The Voyager tracker is designed for project engineers and installers, requires no special tools and only three wrench socket sizes to be fully assembled. It features the fewest foundations per module in the industry and employs a fast and intuitive clamping system that makes module install a breeze. The balanced DC string architecture not only reduces the overall DC collection cost, but also is ideal for DC cable harness systems. And, the single row, 2-portrait module mounting architecture allows engineers to make the most of the available land while maintaining suitable accessibility for cleaning and mowing in higher GCR designs. What this all means is that the Voyager tracker provides the lowest installed cost per watt in the industry.

Voyager is equally designed with performance and reliability in mind. The single-row, self-powered actuation and control system utilizes a power architecture that puts little demand on the battery, providing three days of back-up power while requiring battery replacement half as often as competitive designs. The row-level control features communication redundancy through a wireless mesh network and bi-directional communication with zone controllers. Voyager's proprietary control system allows for continued performance optimization through custom backtracking.

If you are a developer, EPC, or asset owner working on ground-mount projects, FTC Solar's Voyager tracker should be part of your next project. Contact us at trackers@ftcsolar.com for more information or to schedule a private viewing of the Voyager tracker at SPI.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
