Heliostats
 
 

DFM Engineering has provided ten heliostats.

They have driven the light from the equatorially mounted flat mirror upward along an extension of the polar axle to a number 2 mirror that has folded the light vertically downward.

We have developed a special polar alignment technique for heliostats.

Features:

• Equatorially mounted flat mirror

• 4 degrees per second axes motion

• Mirror front surface located at the    intersection of the axes

• On axis 1 arc second resolution encoders

• Axes fiducials

• Computer control system
