DAT-1 Solar Tracking Module

Consists of 1x 500W Solar Panel (2.6m2) Generates 5kWh/p Energy per day.

These images are of our first free standing DAT-1 Prototype:

The Bespoke Mast Hinge using 4X4WD Hi-lift Jack.

Optional: 24V Hydraulic Module to Raise & Lower the Mast Safely..

Chinese DAT Controller Module (Relay type).

Polish DAT Controller Module with Automotive MOSFETS.

This DAT Prototype Hinge, we used a common 4X4WD High-lift Jack to raise & lower the DAT Racking.

For the production model, you will be able to be purchase the DAT with or without a 24V Hydraulic Cylinder as shown above.

For those Not wanting to use Ladders/Scaffolding, a Mast hinge design simply allows for the DAT to be Assembly at Ground level, then raised, the hinge also make for easy lowering for Cleaning , Servicing or to allow for easier relocation the DAT to another premises.

What will a DAT-1 Harvest ?

This DAT-1 module installed with 1x 500W solar panel generate approx. 5kWh Energy per Day in Full Sunlight, when installed at 32° Latitude (Sydney).

It should be noted that the further South of the Equator you live, a DAT modules will Generate even more energy per Day!

Does a DAT unit cost include the Foundation ?

No, DAT foundation is Optional, as some customers will prefer to manufacture there own foundation or base plate, as these small modules can be Free-standing, just like a Cafe Umbrella, or if prefer, can be Dynabolted to a Concrete slab.

However, we commonly supply a 90~200cm Double Flanged Foundation Pole, the Top Flange should be set at Ground level, the Top Flange has the same bolt pattern as the Main Mast, providing easy assembly.

What is the Solar Panel Ground Clearance Height ?

With the panels Tilted at 60 degrees at Sunrise & Sunset, the panels can be as close to the ground as you like, commonly no less than 30cm ground clearance is recommended.

If you want to increase the Panel ground clearance so people & livestock can walk beneath the DAT, the Main Mast simply needs to be Higher.

What Hight are the solar panels at in the Stow Position ?

A DAT module with a 90cm Main Mast, +100cm Tilt Mast & Beams, the Panels in the Stow or High Wind Position (Horizontal) will be approx. 200cm above the ground.

The location & Height of a DAT units can be manufactured to compensate for the surrounding Shading from Trees, Buildings &/or Terrain, allowing the DAT to capture the maximum amount of Solar Radiation at Day break & Sunset.

This just requires a taller Main Mast to obtain the desired Panel height at full tilt.
