Tracker Availability

This signal provides a way to see whether a solar tracker is available. The availability is decided by the difference between the target and current angle.

If the difference is larger than the availability threshold, it is unavailable. The availability threshold can be set for a site using the metadata field Tracker Availability Threshold. If Tracker Availability Threshold is empty, a default availability threshold of 5 is used.
