|Operating Voltage||8 to 30 VDC||Works with 12 or 24 volt DC power supplies. Do NOT exceed 30 VDC.|
|Maximum Operating Current||14 amps continuous 16 amps intermittent||The linear actuators used in this kit draws a maximum of 9 amps. The tracking electronics can handle up to 16 amps.|
|Corrosion Resistance||Conformal coating on all circuit boards||Conformal coatings are generally applied to circuit boards that are used outdoors. They protect the electronics from moisture (humidity) and corrosion.|
|Moisture Ingress Protection||IP65 Rated Enclosures||Protects electronics from moisture.|
|UV Protection||Wire and Enclosures are UV protected||Both enclosures and all cable is outdoor rated and UV resistant.|
|Reverse Polarity Protection||Yes||If positive and negative power supplies wires are accidentally connected backwards, the internal fuse on the circuit board will blow and protect the electronics.|
|Short Circuit Protection||Yes||If any of the external wires are accidentally shorted together, the internal fuse on the circuit will blow and protect the electronics.|

The Suntura Solar Tracker Kit comes with manual control buttons that allow the user to manually move the north/south and east/west linear actuators. This is convenient if you want to position the solar tracker to wash the solar panels, if you want to position the solar panels for a high wind event, etc. See photo gallery.
The kit also includes two 20 amp fuses (one operational fuse and one extra spare fuse). See photo gallery.
We provide a detailed Owner's Manual which provides instructions on assembling and optimizing your Solar Tracker.
