Solar Tracker Slave Controller Software

The Slave Controller software can with its limited communication scope is reduced to focusing on tracker operations. It contains all the operational tracker functionality as found in the SCX Stand-Alone software, as well as a small module for either:

  • RS485/Modbus

  • Wireless

A domain of slave controllers within one master will all operate with the same parameter set as defined on the master. For this reason, the type of slave controllers must be uniform throughout a single domain.

The master continually broadcasts weather information to its domain of slave controllers. If a slave is defined to consider the weather information, it will enter Storm mode if a storm condition is broadcast. A given slave unit will also enter Storm mode is the communication link to the master is lost.
