Paneled frame Mk2

From Blogger Pictures

Paneled frame my original thought was to have two panels horizontaly and slightly over hanging the top of the array and the sixth one mounted separately.
I now intend to have them all as the first row of three mounted vertically with a 0.5 M over hang of the frame to keep it all below 4m in height.

I'm slightly concerned by how a powerful of wind might affect the array so I'm toying with the idea of putting sides on the array to try an prevent wind getting under them.

Trial Assembly and Array stand

As the stainless steel coach bolts arrive It was time for a Trial Assembly of the solar array mounting and the building of the Solar Array stand.

Here is the Array frame MK1 Im thinking of adding the other array to this stand now.

So Mk1 is for just 3 of the Solar pannels Mk2 is just an Idea that looks like it could work.

The parts assembled in the Winter position.

The parts assembled in the Summer position.

The Array stand is now built waiting to have the Solar Array frame poped on top.

A height check marker post attached.
