Schletter's FS System has qualified to be Classified with the ETL Listed Mark. Passing complete mounting system grounding requirements, the company will begin marking FS Systems with the Intertek ETL Listed CM Mark in the coming weeks.

October 5, 2011 Tucson, AZ — Schletter Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) mounting systems, announces that its world renowned FS System passed test requirements to be identified as Classified with the ETL Listed Mark.


Intertek©, the issuing organization of the ETL Listed Mark, engaged in extensive system testing in order to qualify the system in its entirety, including all components. Photovoltaic mounting (racking) systems sold under the FS System module number now comply with the standard for safety under UL-1703, CAN/ULC-ORD-C1703, and UL-Subject-2703. Schletter will begin producing the FS Systems with the ETL Listed Mark in the early part of November, 2011.

Used primarily for utility-scale and large commercial solar PV installations, the FS System is used in some of the world's largest solar PV systems, including a 150 MW Mesquite Solar 1 PV power plant in Maricopa County, Arizona. "Used in combination with our ETL Listed Rapid2+ Grounding Middle Clamp we can provide our customers with a completely bonded system," says Wolfgang Fritz, Vice President of Engineering for Schletter Inc.
