Tracker Motor Reaches 1,600 Years of Cycle Testing

Golden, CO - March 21, 2012 - SunTrac has achieved over 1,600 years of life cycle testing on our tracker motor! The panel control motor and electronics have been temperature-cycling within the motor enclosure 9 times a day to 145 F and then back to room temperature for over 1,000 years of life cycle (the ST motor only runs 2 minutes a day on a live panel). Another panel on a home at 8,000 feet has three years in the extreme Colorado weather and 660 years of life cycle testing. The ST stepper motor has a 300:1 gear ratio so that it can make minute adjustments to the parabolas as instructed by the photo-sensor. The 5 watt/12 volt DC motor has been manufactured for 30+ years under the same SKU.
