    VE Vertically-Enclosed Applications
    Applications

    The Kinematics VE is a fully-enclosed, vertical drive that does not require other components for mounting. It is most commonly used in the center of single-axis solar trackers to hold the solar array sturdy in a high wind storm without breaking. The VE drives are a high-power unit that can rotate and accurately position a very long line of panels by themselves to ensure greatest energy collection.

    VE Vertically-Enclosed Specifications
    Specifications

    The base model sizes of the VE drives deliver performance ranges from 3,000Nm to 38,710Nm of holding torque, 201Nm to 8,960Nm of output torque, 500Nm to 33,900Nm of overturning moment load capacity, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. The mounting can be done vertically without extra components. Get all the specifications.

    VE Vertically-Enclosed Reliability
    Reliability

    Kinematics tests all of its products for quality and reliability. Our VE drives are engineered to create customized solutions with a 30-year field life. All Kinematics drives meet the standards set by ISO 9001, CE, REACH, and TUV certifications and our components and final assemblies are qualified.

    VE Vertically-Enclosed Performance
    Performance

    Kinematics VE slewing drives are designed to hold heavy loads and withstand high forces without breaking. Our drives are built with hourglass worm technology which increases gear engagement and leads to more stable load holding and higher accuracy. VE drives also come in a maintenance-free version to provide consistent performance for a 30-year field life. Improve solar energy performance.
