In late 2016 Mounting Systems GmbH requested Fichtner Group for an independent technical due diligence of its Sigma Tracker product. The assessment included the evaluation of design and design tools, the entire development process, functionality and static as well as processes to determine materials and dimensions in the framework of a sample project.

The Fichtner Report summarizes the findings as: “In general and subject to specific project adaptation, the Mounting Systems Sigma Tracker system is of good quality and withstand harsh conditions. The system was developed within comprehensive procedures and tested in real life to proof the reliability of the Sigma Tracker.“

Reliable technology

maximum stability
minimum vibration

The Sigma Tracker is a single-axis tracker system combining pragmatism with technological foresight. An efficient, high-performance Siemens motor drives the innovative jack mechanism which allows for a range of motion up to +/- 45°. During development of the Tracker system, we focused on simple installation, freedom from maintenance, high static stability and the lowest possible operational vibration – along with minimal power consumption. The smooth-running, low-friction Sigma Tracker withstands wind speeds of up to 260 km/h.

Low maintenance

maximum durability
minimum maintenance

The system’s profiles are manufactured from durable materials to ensure unlimited functionality and operational availability of the system even in highly corrosive environmental conditions. The advantage for developers: All electrical components and moving parts are designed to withstand extreme weather and environmental conditions and reduce interventions during normal operation to a minimum.
