DAT-8 Solar Tracking Unit (16m2 Racking)

Dual Axis-solar Trackers are Superior at Generating Energy !

Dual Axis Slew Drive.

A DAT-8 Solar Tracker Generates;

  • 61kWh/p Energy per Day with 8x 700W panels.
  • 44kWh/p Energy per Day with 8x 500W panels.
  • 39kWh/p Energy per Day with 8x 445W panels.
  • 33kWh/p Energy per Day with 8x 380W panels.

This sized DAT module supplies enough energy for a large Residential or Semi-Commerecial energy consumption.

noted the further South of the Equator you live, all DAT units will Generate more energy.

This Customer set his 130cm Foundation Pole 30 cm above the Ground.

All Double Flanged Foundation Pole Hole, requires an additional depth of 30cm, to provide a 30cm Cement Bed below the bottom Flange Plate!

It is advisable to install a Earth/Ground spike at the same time, old school would be a Re-bar or Star Picket.

The Rotation of a DAT Racking.

For those looking to Dig or Auger a minimum 40cm Diameter Foundation Hole for a Double Flanged Foundation Pole, you should allow an additional depth of 30cm, to provide a 30cm Cement Bed below the bottom Flange Plate to take the vertical load of the DAT.

It is advisable to install a Earth/Ground spike at the same time, old school would be a Re-bar or Star Picket.

All you need to know to install a DAT Array;

1. A standard DAT does NOT include a Foundation!

As some customers prefer to manufacture there own foundation.

However, A standard Double Flanged Foundation Pole for a DAT-8 is 130cm.

There are another 3 Foundation types to chose from, based on the Ground type!

2. What is the Solar Panel Ground Clearance height in the morning & evening ?

A DAT-8 installed with a standard 90cm Main Mast, with the Racking Tilted 60 degrees, the panels will be approx. 300mm (30cm) above the ground, a 130cm Main Mast provides 70cm Clearance.

If you want to increase the ground clearance the Main Mast heigh needs to be increased, allow approx. $1.25 per cm increase.

3. What is the Ground spacing require between multiple DAT's to stop panel shading?

North-south direction spacing is approx. 8 meters.

East-west direction the distance is approx. 9 meters.

These distances will change depending on your Latitude location & any Shading from Trees/Terrain.

4.What height are the Panels in the Tilt & Stow Position?

In a Tilt position of 60° the panels will be approx. 600mm (60cm) from the ground.

In the Stow position (Horizontal) with a standard Mast, the height will be approx. 250cm Heigh.

5. The location & Height of a DAT units will be set by the Surrounding Trees, Buildings &/or Terrain, as DAT's should/need be installed in an area that capture the most Sun.

Australian INSTALLERS: Make sure that in Winter any Trees growing on the North side of any DAT's location, does Not Cast a Shadow over the Solar Panels, as it will simply reduce the Daily Energy Generated.

the height of the tree.

Below information is required, before we manufacture a DAT unit to your Specification;

1. You tell the exact height from the ground (at a 60 degree tilt)

2. Tell us how many units are needed (according to North-south direction and east-west direction).
