18 Sep 2010

Precision solar tracking drive Cone Drive Gearing Solutions has developed a precision solar tracking drive design scalable to any mirror surface area. The key to the design is Cone Drive’s true double enveloping worm gear technology, which provides greater durability and precision. The overall tracking drive gear ratio can be 100,000:1 or larger to provide extremely high-resolution mirror movements. The tracking drive accuracy is maintained through the power generation system lifetime. The custom design of the tracking drive focuses on providing the lowest cost solution that exceeds the application performance specifications.
