Ciralight's SunTracker™ -- Product Parts List
Below is a detailed list of product parts that make a Ciralight SunTracker™ system.
SunTracker™ Base Unit
Ciralight's Solar Powered GPS Controller is the brain behind the SunTracker™. Utilizing a small photovoltaic panel for energy, the GPS Controller establishes the unit's location on Earth and rotates the SunTracker's™ Mirror Array towards the sun to direct it's light indoors throughout the day. The GPS Controller's capabilities make this skylight the pinnacle of daylighting devices.
The SunTracker™ Dome is specifically shaped for active daylighting and strength. Available in either Acrylic or Polycarbonate, the Dome has been tested to withstand over 800 lbs dropped on it while also allowing full spectrum sunlight to pass through and into the building below. Capable of withstanding any climate, the SunTracker™ Dome is the skin that keeps the whole system protected within.
Dome Assembly Frame
The SunTracker™ Dome Assembly Frame is the intermediary between the roof curb and the dome. Sitting flush atop the curb, the Assembly Frame holds the Dome firmly in place while keeping the GPS Controller and Mirrors protected from all external elements outside. The dual rain run-off levees built along the edge of the Dome Assembly Frame assure the SunTracker™ will not leak, while the Top Diffuser Lens sealed inside the Dome Assembly Frame works, in part, to minimize temperature transfer.
Triple Mirror Array
Rotating within the Dome throughout the day is the SunTracker™ Mirror Array. Reflecting direct sunlight through the Top and Bottom Diffuser Lenses, the highly-reflective aluminum Mirrors make the SunTracker™ the most effective skylight on the market. The SunTracker's™ Mirrors allow for consistent natural lighting from just after sunrise to just before sunset.
Required SunTracker™ Accessories
Reflective Lightwell Panels (4)
The SunTracker™ Lightwell transfers sunlight reflected off the Mirror Array into a building's interior. Sunlight passes through it's highly-reflective shaft to transmit abundant illumination indoors through a Lower Diffuser Lens at the bottom of the Lightwell throughout the daytime. SunTracker™ Lightwells are available in a variety of lengths and can be adjusted to meet any design and construction need.
Lower Diffuser Lenses
Flat Lower Diffuser Lens
Ciralight's SunTracker™ Flat Lower Diffuser Lens allows for a clean, flush finish to any ceiling while also dispersing stunning daylight all throughout any space utilizing SunTracker™ Skylights. Available in Acrylic and Polycarbonate, the Flat Lower Diffuser Lens is a great compliment to any SunTracker™ unit.
Pyramid Lower Diffuser Lens
The SunTracker's™ Pyramid Lower Diffuser Lens gives a building interior a beautiful, evenly lit room at every angle. The shape of the Pyramid Lower Diffuser Lens allows for further dispersal of daylight to maximize indoor illumination levels. Available in Acrylic and Polycarbonate, the Pyramid Lower Lens is an aesthetic and effective answer for any room's daylighting needs.

Low Ceiling Diffuser Lens
The Low Ceiling Diffuser Lens is the suitable choice for ceiling heights of 12 feet (4 meters) or less. The SunTracker's™ Low Ceiling Diffuser Lens diffuses more light than our Pyramid and Flat Lower Diffuser Lenses, which may be too bright for smaller applications like classrooms and offices. Also, the Low Ceiling Diffuser Lens' design allows for daylight to reach further into the corners and edges of an interior space with low ceilings. Available in only Acrylic.

Roller Shade System
The SunTracker™ Roller Shade System is a great compliment to any space that needs to control indoor light levels during the day. Go from full light, to half light, to pitch black in seconds with the Roller Shade System.
