The paper describes a new kind of solar tracker intended to satisfy the precision requirements of high concentration photovoltaic systems. The tracker is designed according to a Delta type parallel kinematic schematics. The paper describes the kinematic schematics, the sensor chain and the control algorithm. Finally results obtained in functional tests are shown.
