Title: Friction Drives For Solar Tracker Movement ?
Post by: solardude on October 23, 2015, 01:05:12 PM
I was excited to see Gabrial post up a sun tracking setup by Nova Solar that is using a friction drive & encoder.

This setup and look is exactly what I'm shooting for so I'm very interested in learning all I can about friction drives and how they work since they may be a better choice than the 12v motors & worm gear drives I'm working with now.

Has anybody else tried using or building a Friction drive before?

Dave with Nova Solar if your out there please chime in if your free! Your set up looks awesome.
