Long Island City, NY – March 5, 2019 -- Mecho, a global leader in commercial window coverings, introduces SolarTrac 4.0, a technologically-superior automated window shading control system designed to maximize occupant and building performance through daylight management.
The patented SolarTrac 4.0 merges the science of predictive algorithms with real-time weather conditions to provide a scalable solution with precise and predictive performance for control that ranges from single floor control to individual commercial buildings to an entire healthcare facility. These technologies enable SolarTrac 4.0 to raise or lower window shades to maximize natural daylight coming into a building, increase energy efficiency, enhance occupant comfort and performance, improve building energy management, and maintain aesthetics—all while preserving valuable views to the outside.
SolarTrac 4.0 incorporates the sun's precise position based on date, time, building GPS location, and glass façade orientation—as well as shadows and reflection caused by surrounding buildings—to raise or lower window shades to harvest the maximum amount of daylight. SolarTrac 4.0 is software-based; allowing it to be managed by multiple users on-site or even remotely and is the first on the market to include self-diagnostics. Please visit Mecho to discover the power of SolarTrac and the new features of SolarTrac 4.0.
