DuraTrack® HZ v3 Solar Tracker Receives Internationally Recognized Certification
Global solar tracker pioneer achieves both IEC 62817 and UL 3703 certification
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – September 12, 2018 – Array Technologies, pioneers of solar tracking, have achieved both IEC 62817 and UL 3703 certifications. IEC 62817 is the international standard related to photovoltaic systems, specifically the design qualification of solar trackers. During the evaluation process, Array Technologies worked directly with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to meet their criteria, for areas such as:
- Testing under extreme wind loading
- Deflection under static load
- Torsional stiffness, mechanical drift, drive torque, and back lash testing
“Array Technologies has demonstrated to the worldwide PV market that we are committed to maintaining the highest international standards, our DuraTrack HZ v3, single-axis tracking system has been determined through a 3rd party to be of exceptional quality and performance,” said John Nagyvary, testing and certification manager at Array Technologies.
The IEC’s tests were engineered with the specific purpose of separating tracker designs that would be most likely to exhibit early failures, from those that are sound and suitable for use as specified by the manufacturer. Having achieved IEC 62817 certification allows Array Technologies to affirm to both domestic and international customers that their tracker design meets or exceeds the product specifications.
“We are excited to earn this newest certification and believe it speaks to the culture here of uncompromising quality,” said Jim Fusaro, chief executive officer at Array Technologies. “This is a result of our commitment to provide the most reliable product and lowest LCOE to the utility-scale solar market.”
