Trackers in HelioScope

Single-axis trackers are currently in Beta in HelioScope, and are free to use while they remain an in-progress feature. Note that our third-party engineering review is in process and has not yet been completed, so the calculations are subject to change. 

Currently back-tracking is on for all trackers, and the tracking range is set to +/- 60°. Both of those will be configurable in the future, but are hard-coded at the moment. 

When setting the azimuth, think of the azimuth as the direction of the axis that trackers will rotate around. An azimuth value of 180° will result in the modules rotating to the east and west.

To access trackers, please contact support@folsomlabs.com to request the beta. Then go to your racking type in your Field Segment and select Single-axis Trackers from the options in the drop down menu:
