Cheap Solar Tracking




What do you think about this video?

shartne: How big of servos can be bought ? I am think can I make it power a solar panel thats 5 or 10 pounds?

Bubblytubebob: How do I make that servo connect to a big enough motor that can turn a 2000 lb solar array ?

Matt: How long would this system last? Could output be measured?

tomli123001: This is amazing and I hope I have thought of that when I was doing my uni solar thesis project.....

Gustavo Araiza: happens when the sun goes down the photocells will seek the sun in the morning

justgivemethetruth: OK .. so how does it reset overnight back to the east?

Archie Archie: Awesome video. Thank You for sharing

TSAGEDAR: Hi, can you please write the type of photo-resistor? THX

Alexander1560: nice video, here you can an advanced solar tracker : youtube.com/watch?v=mOyH9LFQjlg

tsbrownie: That is great. Suggestions on how to scale it up to 240watt panels? 

Prancinglion1: This is terrific...! Cheap and effective. How do you amp this system up to use with a solar pannel array...? Please Email me at Prancinglion@yahoo.com Thanks in advance.

steamlilly: I need to make a /light sensitive switch for my dark room (cuz I don't want to use separate AC adapters for each locker) And all i find is solar tracker! Anybody can help? :)

diyengineer: what happens when the sun sets? 

iC3x: You're English Accent is like my Chinesse accent...:D 

mrdrumsauce: very cool, nice work, thanks for posting this

Flyin777: Could this same circuit be used on a large solar panel using a more heavy duty servo?

dub380: Thank you!! Great DIY!!

321RCHeli: @midodiali RC nicad batteries like the one shown only use 2 wires. Even though they plug onto 3 pins, only 2 of them are for power and the remaining pin is for the servo position "signal", which is not used in a battery connection. In other words, the third connection on the battery plug is not actually connected to the battery.
