SolarTrac, the advanced WindowManagement program

The use of natural daylight is maximized when the shades move incrementally and automatically on windows throughout the day according to the solar condition. Roof-mounted radiometers convey data to the SolarTrac system for creating a sky-and-microclimatic model of the building in real time. The data are recorded as either clear/sunny or cloudy to control the shades in a fully raised position or in incrementally lowered positions, depending on the position of the sun and intensity of the solar ray.
