AKKUtrack Sensor

This new AKKUtrack Sensor is no longer a simple measuring instrument, but a real active pointing sensor with high accuracy.

Thanks to the programmable digital outputs, AKKUtrack Light can be interfaced with each solar tracking system, so as to give corrections purposes in order to increase the tracking accuracy up to 0.1° in comparison to the standards accuracy currently granted on the market of 0.5°.
