This technical support issue was sent in by one of our Solarius users.
During the assisted design phase of the Photovoltaic Field, what does "Fixed", "Horizontal axis" and "Vertical axis" support structure mean.
When positioning the photovoltaic modules you can choose whether to design the photovoltaic system positioned on co-planar or non coplanar surface structures. If you choose coplanar surfaces, this means you can orientate the system on mobile Structures, in order to obtain an optimization of the system performance. In particular, the specifications of each individual support structure are illustrated below.
The support structure can be:
Fixed: modules are anchored to a fixed structure, so the Tilt and Azimut are fixed.
Mobile on horizontal axis: the module is anchored to a structure that can rotate around the horizontal axis, so the Azimuth is fixed, while the Tilt is variable.
Mobile to a vertical axis: the module is anchored to a structure that can rotate around the vertical axis, so the Tilt is fixed, while the Azimuth is variable.
Two-axis: the module is anchored to a structure that can rotate around both the horizontal and on the vertical axis, so the Azimuth and the Tilt are both variable.

First of all, the reference as to which direction your supporting structures are pointed must be based on the site orientation. Please be sure to have correctly assigne the Site Orientation using the Compass object present under Levels -> Site Plan.
See attached illustration.
