Solar Tracking Actuators (SA)

Joyce Solar Actuators are designed to precisely position smaller solar tracking Equipment. Their robust and efficient DC motor (24V or 36V) keeps power consumption to a minimum. Travel speeds remain nearly constant regardless of the load.

Ideal for rugged environments common to the solar industry, these cost effective SA actuators have an IP65 protection rating. Self-locking features in the mechanism ensure that the solar actuator can be held in position throughout the daily tracking cycle.


  • Double clevis mounting for easy installation
  • Clutch for overload protection
  • Adjustable limit switches for flexible travel settings
  • Reed sensor digital feedback for accurate positioning
  • Duty cycle is 25% (4 min. running, 12 min. rest)
  • IP65 rating provides protection against outdoor conditions
  • Lubricated for life


  • Available in 24V and 36V
  • Three stroke lengths
  • Trunnion or end clevis mounts available
