UTRF-168 Universal Solar Tracker
|Item code||Brand name||Model number|
Universal TRACK RACK
for Photovoltaic Modules
Since 1980, more than 19,000 Zomeworks single axis trackers have been installed, in different climates, on nearly every continent in the world. Track Racksâ¢ are highly cost-effective components for domestic and industrial photovoltaic power systems; water pumping systems; cathodic protection systems; and traditional power utilities
The sunâs heat moves liquid from side to side. This action allows gravity alone to turn the Track Rack to follow the sunâtherefore no motors, no gears and no controls to fail. The Track Rack features an early morning, rapid-return system. Shipped partially assembled, itâs easy to install and is module specific.
Six standard UTR and UTR-F Track Racks fit all common photovoltaic modules. The UTR020, UTR040 and the UTRF-072, -090, -120 and -168 are named for the number of square feet of module area they hold. To determine which size single axis tracker you need for your modules, see the Track Rack Matrix located under the 'documents' tab above.
Zomeworks UTRF-072COST EFFECTIVE
Zomeworks' Track Racks increase the electrical output of photovoltaic modules by 25% or more compared to modules on fixed mounts.
- Track Racks always produce more power than a fixed rack
- Track Racks produce 25-45% more power in the summer
- Track Racks produce up to 50% more water when using them for pumping
A 12-module tracking system delivers the same electric output as 15 modules mounted on fixed racks a savings of three modules.
Track Racks being 25% - 45% more efficient means either you get 25% - 5% more power or you can buy 25% less panels for your system and still receive the same amount of power had you chosen fixed racks. Either way you get more for the same amount of money.
The greatest benefit of trackers is you get more out of all of your equipment because of them; the inverters, pumps, wells, batteries, - whatever you are using in your system. The entire investment is enhanced by 25% - 40%.
UNIVERSAL SIX SIZES FIT ALL
Zomeworks' Universal Track Rack is available in six standard sizes for holding 2 to 16 modules. Universal Track Racks fit all common photovoltaic modules, including Sharp, Canadian Solar, Kyocera, Photowatt, BP, Solec, Uni-Solar, and most other popular modules.
NO MORE HOLES
The revolutionary new Zomeworks' J Clip universal stainless steel module mounting clip, eliminates the need for module-specific holes that can be mispositioned.
EASY TO TRANSPORT
The Universal Track Rack comes knocked down in two or three easy-to-handle boxes that conveniently fit into a small pickup truck.

How to determine which Track Rack to order:
Open the "Track Rack Matrix" PDF file in the "Documents" section above. It contains a series of charts describing possible PV arrays you may have. Scroll down the column on the left to find the photovoltaic make and model you will use. Follow the row to the right until you find the box with the number of modules you plan to place on your tracker. Follow the column up to find the retail price and "Model Number" (UTR xxx) of the tracker you need.
