Typical Single Tracker Installations
The above illustrates a typical Deger 9000HT tracker system.
In these installations, we install the larger single tracker much the same way as is described for the dual Deger 5000HD (click here to go for that information).
Note a point of interest for this installation is the addition of an Uninteruptable Power Supply (UPS). Installing a UPS is appropriate where the installion site is prone to strong wind conditions and frequent power outages. Note in particular that we install an outdoor grade UPS and not your typical office grade version that typically cease to perform (and often self distruct) when exposed to below freezing tempratures.
Whereas a Deger 5000HD tracker can hold 40sqm of panel array - usually 24 or 25 panels - the Deger 9000NT supports 70sqm of panel array - usually 42 and up to 48 panels. Since the panel array is much larger on the 9000NT, the base must be correspondingly larger (minimum 3.3m diameter for a 9000NT vs minimum 2.7m for a 5000HD).
Of course, two 5000HD trackers support more panels than a single 9000NT tracker so will produce more power with the same panel type. However, installing two trackers is a more costly endeavour than a single tracker. Chosing between a dual Deger 5000HD system or a single Deger 9000NT then is a large topic that is driven by your particular situation that we would be pleased to discuss with you on a site evaluation.
