KMI Announces Industry’s First Rotary Damper for Solar Trackers

Phoenix, Ariz.

KMI announced and displayed at SPI the industry’s first rotary dampers designed for the needs and loads of single-axis solar trackers.

Rotary dampers offer constant damping irrespective of tracker angle, and the same high reliability as KMI’s rotary actuators.

“We’re proud to provide rotary damper technology for single-axis solar trackers’, said Mark Henderson, KMI CEO. “A rotary design offers a consistent dampening effect throughout the range-of-motion of a solar tracker, absorbing the energy of high winds that can both sub-optimize positioning of panels relative to the sun and cause excessive wear and tear, thereby requiring increased maintenance and risking downtime”.
