Purlin

Self Balancing Arch Purlin

purlins

Self-balancing solar tracker is equipped BOFU unique arch purlins to support solar panels. This is the most obvious difference between BOFU Self-balancing solar tracker and other brand trackers. Why ?

Ordinary Flat Purlins

The barycenter of ordinary flat purlins is located above the main beam, when the main beam rotates at a certain angle, the barycenter of the purlins and solar panels will deviate from the pivot of the main beam, resulting in an eccentric torque. Therefore, when the slewing drive rotates, it is not only necessary to overcome the friction of the supporting bearing itself, but also to overcome the torsion force caused by the eccentric torque, which inevitably increases the power consumption of the motor.

Self Balancing Arch Purlins

The BOFU unique arch purlins makes the total barycenter of the purlins and solar panels coincide with the pivot of the main beam at any angle, thus the overall eccentric toque is almost zero no matter how the main beam rotates, the slewing drive only need to overcome the friction of the supporting bearing itself, so to reduce the power consumption of the motor.

Advantage

Self Balancing Arch Purlins

purlins

Reduce the power consumption of driving motors, thus improve the power generation rate of the system.

The load of the drive motor is stable, prolong the service life of the drive motor.

Ordinary purlins have a short-term zero eccentric toque only in the horizontal state, and arch purlins are in a zero-eccentric toque moment at any time, which  reduce the swing caused by wind, so the windproof effect of self-balancing bracket is better.

H Strut

H Strut With Q345 Material

STRUT

BOFU single axis solar tracker uses Q345 carbon steel and H-beam steel as the support column to ensure that the tracking bracket is still strong and durable in bad weather.

Solar Panels

For Bifacial Solar Panels

panels

More and more power stations are choosing to use Bifacial solar panels, which generate power not only by direct sunlight to the front face but also by reflected light to the panel back. Unlike single-sided solar panels, they are made of clear glass that allows reflect light pass through and arrive panel back to generate power. This requires that the solar tracker must minimize the blocking of sunlight, especially on the back of the solar panel. BOFU’s arch-shaped purlins are designed so that the solar panels can be mounted on purlins only by the edge of panels, which greatly increases the reflective area on the back of the solar panel

Slewing Drive

High Power Slewing Drive

slewing drive

The solar tracking bracket adopts high power vertical slewing drive, which has a large radial load and a large overturning load to ensure the normal operation in windy weather.

Damping Bearing

Patent Damping Bearing

Damping Bearing

In order to avoid vibrations caused by high wind turbulence, BOFU Single Solar Tracker uses a patented product – damping bearings to resist vibrations. Damped bearings combine the advantages of damping rods and load-bearing bearings, allowing the bearings not only to bear large radial load, but also to provide reverse damping to counter vibrations caused by high winds.

Clips

Fast Lock Clips

clip

The solar panels were mounted on the purlins with fast lock clip, no need tools and screws, one panel locked on the purlin by 6 clips, only 30 seconds for one solar panel, save time and labor.
