Creotecc Solar Mounting Systems Receives UL 2703 Recognition

Creotecc is currently in phase two testing with UL for an innovative, new module grounding solution.

Scotts Valley, CA – March 8, 2013


Creotecc is proud to announce their entire product line is now UL 2703 recognized for bonding and grounding. Rigorous materials and connection testing conducted by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) confirms that every connection within the Creotecc mounting system framework forms a safe and reliable bond with assured electrical continuity for the life of the system.

Through careful selection of component materials, Creotecc has incorporated UL 2703 bonding and grounding compliance with no additional grounding hardware. Racking installation with standard hardware alone achieves ultimate framework grounding.

UL 2703 combines UL, IBC, NEC and ANSI standards. UL 2703 compliance requires successful completion of an extensive array of electrical and environmental tests. The entire Creotecc product line was subjected to rigorous testing over a four month period.

"As national solar standards continue to become defined and adopted, Creotecc is proud to be an active member of the UL 2703 standard technical panel and lead the way with proactive safety testing of our equipment to the highest standards," says Creotecc Product Manager Rodger Petherbridge.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
