We understand what developers face when it comes to building on uneven terrain. Earthworks are a significant expense when planning a project, and we've developed the industry-leading innovations that make L:TEC the standard in terrain following. Our engineers use detailed 3D maps of project site geography to create a tailored project design, including elevation changes that the trackers will overcome. Our tracker technology, design process, and globally installed base are the track record that makes IDEEMATEC the premiere global tracker supplier.
L:TEC was developed as an independent row architecture system. Since each row is entirely separate, solar farms can be built on hillsides at up to a 36% grade without the concern of shading at any point during the day. Combining our adjustable foundations, patented cardan joints, and 3D adaptive backtracking means you'll make peak power in more places.
The cardan joint is a patented development and is one of the core components in L:TEC's ability to adapt to challenging terrain. The cardan joint is connected directly to the tracker drive tube between tracker tables and can drive up to 260 meters of tracker in up to 36% North-South grade changes.
L:TEC tracker array heights reach up to 2.6 meters, depending on their configuration. This industry-leading array height means that the tracker can be placed on uneven terrain, maintaining the desired array height while protecting the drivetrain.
