Array Technologies DuraTrack HZ v3 provides single-bolt per module clamping

The DuraTrack HZ v3 has a high power density, due to a reduction in module-to-module gaps to 1/4" coupled with elimination of the gear box dead-space that has resulted in a 6% density advantage over its closest competitor system, according to the company. Greater reliability is provided by improved driveline design efficiencies that have allowed for 50% fewer motors and controllers per MW, with each motor driving 650-750kW. Motor assemblies are now located on the east or west edge of the tracker blocks, facilitating easy access. DuraTrack HZ v3 requires less than 1/2 the fasteners per MW with only 10,000 vs. 25,000 for alternative solar tracking solutions. Our ground-breaking single-bolt per module clamp is optimized for rapid deployment, streamlining the most time-intensive installation step. Zero scheduled maintenance is achieved with the drive train sealed and lubricate...
