PV/CSP Solar Actuation Solutions with smart sensors, smart positioning and more
Please join Parker's Energy Platform Solutions team at  Solar Power International, September 10-13 at  Booth #1545 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Our display will feature innovative linear motion/axis tracker solutions with our hybrid actuation system (HAS) for solar panels. The HAS uses Parker's own intelligent position feedback sensor, as well as our cloud-based wireless condition monitoring and diagnostics sensors. Download Solar Solutions BrochureIn addition, Parker will "sneak preview" a new photovoltaic inverter as part of its extensive offering of Power Conversion/Energy Storage systems.

Hybrid Actuator SystemParker has developed a robust, self-contained hybrid actuator system that provides utility scale PV developers with an ideal solution for adding PV pitch control into large solar field installations. The compact system is a completely self-contained unit combining a double-acting actuator, pump, and electric motor that eliminates nearly all leak paths into or out of the package. It offers clear advantages over comparable electromechanical actuator (EMA) systems because all the internal wear items are permanently lubricated for extended life and the power density of HAS is typically three times that of a comparable EMA. Designing a hybrid actuator into a pitch system allows designers to move more PV panels with fewer actuators and controls, resulting in lower installation costs and longer service over the life of the solar field.

Reinvent Active Solar Tracking through the use of Parker’s Hybrid Actuation System (HAS) actuators. Featuring the controllability of electromechanical actuators combined with the power density, longer life, and resistive force capabilities of traditional hydraulic systems. The resulting hybrid offers a robust, long-life tracking solutions for solar power.

FEATURING GLOBAL SHIELD™ Anti-Corrosive Rod Coating
Specifically designed to enhance Parker cylinder performance in demanding high-humidity outdoor applications with corrosion resistance requirements. When compared to traditional rod coatings, Global Shield provides significant improvements over traditional chrome coatings.

   • Lower Friction – no need for lubrication
   • Stronger Adhesion to the carbon steel substrate
   • More Ductile & Tough so when the rod bends, it does too
   • Engineered Hardness (HRC 54 minimum) for maximum wear-
     resistance (eliminates surface micro-cracks and delamination.)

Additionally Featured on HAS from Parker:  
NEW! Universal Tilt Sensor (UTS)
Providing solar panel controls with closed loop position feedback, the Parker Universal Tilt Sensor (UTS) is a 2-axis or 3-axis MEMS based device that detects absolute position of a solar panel within a range of ±90° from horizontal. Featured at SPI on the Parker Hybrid Actuation System (HAS), Parker’s proprietary UTS can also be integrated with any solar panel control system able to communicate with the SAE J1939 CAN protocol.
