Measurement & control systems

Yokogawa Corporation of America provides complete control, communication, measurement, and instrumentation systems for solar applications. Yokogawa’s HXS10 controller is specifically designed for controlling solar trackers with embedded NREL Solar Positioning Algorithm, robust operating temperature (-20° C to +70° C | -4° F to +158° F), and extensive field communications support. Since the HXS10 was specifically designed for solar tracking applications, it has a variety of specialty inputs for inclinometers and position feedback sensors, including RS232, RS485, and high-speed pulse encoders, as well as full trigonometric functions for calculating positions. Yokogawa’s turnkey control systems include tracker control panels (LOCs), Supervisory Control Systems (SCS), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), communication networks, and field instrumentation. Field instrumentation is designed to accommodate measurement of high-temperature, concentrated solar thermal heat transfer fluid, with several proven installations worldwide. Yokogawa also has a full line of power analyzers, scope-recorders, and data acquisition systems for solar research and development.
