Intersolar - Worldwide Solutions for Solar PV - Mounting Systems presents innovations for Intersolar 2015

Intersolar North America at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from July 13-16 at Booth 9521

WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 1, 2015 -- Mounting Systems, a global leader of solar PV and solar thermal racking solutions, will exhibit at Intersolar North America at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from July 13-16 at Booth 9521. For more than 20 years, Mounting Systems has supplied more than 8GW of innovative, secure and long lasting solar PV racking solutions to customers worldwide. This year's innovations include a new steel ground mount system, expansion of the on-roof Alpha+ system, new clamping technologies, and certifications.


The Sigma Steel ground mount system combines the design of aluminum with the strength of steel. The single-post system is designed for a wide variety of terrain, slopes up to +10 degrees East-West, and provides tilt angles between 5 degrees-45 degrees. Patented click, set, and done Clickstone technology secures modules and provides bonding. Unlike other steel systems, Sigma Steel does not require project specific holes, cutting, or welding. Nevertheless, it offers a high degree of in-field adjustability. Sigma Steel boasts of uncompromising corrosion protection due to its self-healing Magnelis coating. Minimal part counts, shared hardware, and engineered flexibility make the Sigma Steel the right choice for cost effective commercial to utility scale ground mount installations.

The Alpha+ system adds the new Alpha+ Skirt and A+ Flashmounts. The Alpha+ Wind skirt can be combined with shared rail configurations to provide a clean and unobtrusive aesthetic. The A+ Flashmount composite shingle flashings provides roof connections for standard array layouts as well as for the Alpha+ shared rail configurations. Alpha+ shared rail configurations decrease rail quantity at least 25% for residential installations. Alpha+ is ETL Listed to UL2703 and UL1703 on Class A roofs with Type 1 and Type 2 panels.

New PV panels demand new solutions. Mounting Systems offers new module clamps for frameless crystalline panels. The frameless clamps secure modules from 5.5-6.5mm and 6.5-7.5mm thick. The frameless module clamps are compatible with Mounting Systems' most innovative ground mount, on roof and flat roof systems.

Lambda Light+ series flat roof ballasted racking solutions achieve UL certification. Lambda Light EW+ and Lambda Light S+ are ETL Listed to UL2703 and UL1703 on Class A roofs with Type 1 panels. Lambda Light S+ orients the panels facing south, ideal for higher latitudes. For lower latitudes, Lambda Light EW+ provides East and West facing panels for increased power generation throughout the day.

The Company:
Mounting Systems is a world leader in racking solutions with manufacturing locations in Rangsdorf, Germany and West Sacramento, USA. Additional service centers located in the UK, France, Japan and the American Midwest. In early 2015, Mounting Systems purchased global racking manufacturer HatiCon GmbH and its American subsidiary HatiCon Solar. Mounting Systems continues to build on an 8GW history of excellence and product technological leadership, with a continued focus on surpassing customer expectations.

Featured Product

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.
