Solar Positioning Block


The Solar Positioning Function Block (SPFB) from WAGO, Germantown, Wis., increases concentrated solar arrangement efficacy by using dynamic solar mirrors to track the sun's arc. The device uses multiple variables and inputs, including atmospheric pressure, site elevation, azimuth, latitude, longitude, date and local time. Calculations are then paired with the internal clock of the company's programmable fieldbus controller, optimizing mirror position. Data is communicated to a connected dc motor control module and encoder, or other component (e.g., variable frequency drive) for alignment. Learn more>
