Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures Alternative Energy Case Study

Do you have solar or other alternative energy equipment that you need to protect from UV degradation and other environmental hazards? Find out why Nexteer Automotive chose Stahlin Non-Metallic enclosures for their solar control component application in their Enclosures Alternative Case Study.


Global automotive supplier, Nexteer Automotive, was committed to expanding into the alternative energy market by applying its advanced electronic power-steering technology and manufacturing expertise to the design and development of the SunSteer™ solar tracking actuator. Actuators track the sun across the sky and make sure that solar panels automatically follow at an optimum angle.

SunSteer™ components are manufactured to precise tolerances using state of the art materials and processes designed to meet stringent standards (ASTM, SAE, TS16949, MIL, and ISO). Under normal operating conditions, SunSteer™ will accurately track the sun to +/- 1.0 degree while consuming less than $2.00 of energy per year. To ensure optimum performance and reliability, a major element in this product challenge was to ensure that sensitive controls were well-protected from diverse and potentially-damaging environmental factors.
