ACE Controls now supplies SOL-28 solar dampers for solar-panel motion designs needing compression and extension forces of 14 to 2,252 lb and strokes of 1.97 to 15.00 in. The main purpose of SOL-28 solar dampers is to protect photovoltaic (PV) solar tracking systems from damage caused by the negative effects of harsh weather conditions. The dampers have a piston-rod diameter of 0.55 in. and can survive operating temperatures from -30° C to 80° C — even to one million cycles.
A wear-resistant surface coating on the dampers provides a long-lasting high quality appearance. Plus the damper’s heat-treated rod delivers exceptional performance and life expectancy.
