SolarTrac — No manual operation required.

1. Three roof-mounted radiometers monitor
sky conditions in real time.

2. SolarTrac utilizes proprietary algorithms,
which analyze raw solar-sensor data to
determine the sky condition–clear or cloudy.

When cloudy, the shades are raised. When clear,
the shade position is adjusted according to the
sun's angle in the sky.
