NORTH ANDOVER, MA – February 21, 2012 | PanelClaw, a leader in photovoltaic mounting systems, announced today the ETL listing of all PanelClaw products to UL Subject 2703, which establishes safety and performance requirements for PV mounting systems. PanelClaw's ETL listing includes modules from Canadian Solar, Chaori Solar, ET Solar, Gloria Solar, Helios Solar Works, LDK Solar, Mitsubishi Electric, Motech, MX Solar, and Suniva.


"ETL listing reconfirms PanelClaw's commitment to making solar a reliable, accessible solution through testing and engineering excellence," said Costa Nicolaou, PanelClaw's president. "It will allow more of our partners to realize the significant reduction in labor and material costs we have seen since our initial UL 2703 listing last year."

PanelClaw systems are ETL listed to UL 2703 by Intertek for their mechanical strength, durability, and ability to electrically bond and ground modules included in the listing. PanelClaw partners can now quickly and easily establish ETL-certified electric bonds between all connected array components, including modules and mounting system components, and eliminate the need for the vast majority of ground lugs and wire. PanelClaw's Polar Bear® FR, Grizzly Bear® FR, and Panda Bear™ GM flat roof and ground mount systems can reduce grounding costs by $.02-.06/W.

"UL 2703 marks an important evolution in the certification of PV mounting systems, and PanelClaw's ETL listing demonstrates the quality and performance of our products," said Mark Gies, PanelClaw's vice president of technology and innovation. "We're pleased to work with Intertek, a leader in testing and certification, and to continue advancing industry standards."

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
