gathering of natural light throughout the day and year.

tracks the the sun precisely throughout the year, conducting
light from the brightest part of the sky down and into

efficiently, and also shade the intense light sometimes
found at high sun angles.
the aesthetic appeal of sunlight indoors.

free-standing unit takes care of itself.
Runs on energy generated by a single
photovoltaic cell. Auxiliary battery unit allows
unit to resume operation even after extended periods
without sunlight. Durable dome protects mirrors
from the elements.
Weather Resistant Dome
Large, UV-resistant dome is designed to protect
the mirror assembly from the elements. Dome dimension
- 48in x 48in x 24in
Suspended Mirror Assembly
Three lightweight mirror panels are suspended from
a bar inside the dome and turn once every 8-10 minutes
to match the sun's position in the sky. The mirrors
perform 2 functions. Primarily, they optimize the
use of sunlight when the sun is at low angles in
the sky. Secondarily, the mirrors provide some shade
from the glare of direct sunlight when the sun is
high in the sky. The PV cell powering the unit also
turns with the mirrors.
Compact, self-contained control
Reliable, all-in-one construction places the power
source, drive unit, and electronics within a control
box at the peak of each dome.
