Precise positioning of heliostats with Kübler encoders.

At a solar tower power plant, the sunlight is reflected by numerous heliostats onto the receiver of the solar tower. It is only possible to efficiently produce power by precisely positioning the heliostats. Kübler offers an extensive product range of encoders, inclinometers and linear measuring systems for this purpose. High-resolution and sturdy – these are the properties that make up our products. Renowned manufactures of solar-thermal systems around the world use Kübler encoders as precise sensors for positioning heliostats no matter whether in Spain, South Africa, Chile or China. We gladly also face individual challenges and realize modifications and special solutions quickly and easily.
