Tracking systems

Stable. Durable. Yield-optimised.

Solar parks are investments in a clean, fair, and affordable future investments that deliver maximal yields with minimal risk. So we developed a tracking system that does them justice.

Schletter Tracking System

As stable as a fixed tilt.

Reliable energy supply.

As stable as a fixed tilt

Our tracking systems work with a patented mechanical self-locking device on each post. This means that all of the resulting loads are transferred directly into the posts. Dangerous torsion or vibration effects cannot occur at all.

Designed for wind speeds up to 257 km/h

Tropical regions not only have the most sun, but also experience extreme weather events, such as cyclones or hurricanes. Our tracking systems have been specially developed, trialled and field-tested for such extreme loads.

Guaranteed long service life

The stable construction in combination with high-quality corrosion protection ensures an above-average service life.

High power yields

With a movement radius of +/- 60°, the modules are optimally aligned to the sun at any time of day.

Less material per kilowatt

Intelligent design and heavy-duty steels enable exceptionally high material efficiency. This applies in particular to the Tracker 1P: at less than 30 kg per KW, it is around 30 per cent lighter than comparable systems on the market.

3D backtracking

Backtracking and individually controllable tilt angles ensure the optimum energy yield on uneven terrain.

Low installation costs

With just a few, partly pre-assembled components, our tracking systems can be installed quickly and cost-effectively. Neither cranes nor special tools are needed.

Low maintenance requirement

Remote maintenance, special anti-corrosion coatings and low-maintenance gears minimise the need for maintenance and safeguard your investment.

Schletter Tracking System

Used worldwide.

Whether in temperate latitudes, tropical hurricane areas or the Australian outback: our tracking systems with over 1 GWp of installed capacity prove themselves every day all over the world – on almost every continent and in all climate zones.

Schletter Tracking System 1P

One vertical.

  • Designed for use with an XXL module in vertical format
  • Less than 30 kilograms/kW
  • Ground-level assembly is possible without scaffolding, simpler safety precautions are required
  • Optimised for bifacial and monofacial modules

Schletter Tracking System 2P

Two Vertical.

  • Optimised for use with two modules, bifacial or monofacial
  • Suitable for AgriPV applications
  • Higher ground cover ratio: lower land consumption per installed kW (GCR > 50%)

All of the operating parameters are always in view.

Schletter monitors all of the relevant operating parameters, such as motor currents, etc., in a central database, where they are visualised in a dashboard. If a parameter deviates from the norm, an alarm is sent to the maintenance personnel. During the troubleshooting process, the deviations detected are documented and a remedy log is created, so that recurring errors can be corrected quickly.

Want to get closer?

We've installed our Tracking System in the House of Schletter, our new metaverse experience.

Inside, you can interact with life-like, digital replicas of some of our most popular products, and learn all you need to know about them in a way that’s far more immersive than any manual or handbook.

You can even put our Tracking System to the ultimate test in the Weather Lab. By taking nature’s reins, you can control the elements and watch how the System adapts to wind speeds of up to 257 km/h. It’s free to enter, and the doors are open.

Service offer

Support at every stage of your project.

When erecting a ground-mounted PV power plant, all of the pieces have to fall into place – from the initial soil surveys to the operation of the system. This requires reliable partners with many years of practical experience to ensure the success of the project. Benefit from our know-how from over 55 GWp of installed PV systems. Our fasteners reliably fix solar modules all over the world and under the most adverse conditions.
