Worldwide Solutions for Solar PV Mounting Systems presents innovations for SPI 2015

Solar Power International in Anaheim from September 14-17

West Sacramento - Mounting Systems, a global leader of solar PV and solar thermal racking solutions, will exhibit at Solar Power International in Anaheim from September 14-17 at Booth 2326. For more than 21 years, Mounting Systems has supplied more than 8GW of innovative, secure and long lasting solar PV racking solutions to customers worldwide. Mounting Systems will showcase the new Sigma Steel ground mount system, an expanded Alpha+ pitched roof 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 wide variety of terrain, slopes up to ±10° East-West, and provides tilt angles between 5°-45°. 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.
