a movement with future

Photovoltaic systems can track the course of the sun to increase energy yields. The skytrap light single axis PV tracking system developed and produced by mp-tec GmbH & Co. KG represents an affordable and efcient alternative to xed PV module installation on rigidly aligned module mounts. By optimising the closely coordinated mechanical and controlling system components, this single axis tracking system generates an average of up to 30 % more yield than xed systems.


Increase the performance by adding up to 4 extra modules

Flexible module design and size The exible mount unit allows for both horizontal and vertical modular design. The size of the module platform (10 18 m) and the types of modules are selectable.

Maximal mobility Module mount surface can be moved rotationally symmetrically on a swivel axis (adjustable angle 90). Stable rotational movement with maintenance-free, low-wear polymer bearings. Module platform tilted 30 to the horizontal installation surface (elevation angle) other angle positions possible to customer requirements.


Optoelektronic solar sensor React real-time to changing position of the sun. The sensor operates with an accuracy in angle of less than two gred from the position of the sun and thus maximum solar radiation yield.


Astronomical controller React real-time continuously according to astronomical controlalgorithm. Shadow-free operation of multiple tracking systems with optional Back-Tracking function.
