Continental Control Systems announced today that it will introduce their new compact OEM revenue-grade PV Meter Module. "Meter on a Board" features an innovative compact single board design (measuring 2.75" x 2.5") that can accommodate either a single or three phase service with either board-mounted or externally mounted CT's.

Continuing the quality and value that Continental Control Systems is known for, the module has the full functionality of a traditional meter in a smaller package without the AC power supply.

The meter's compact design significantly reduces the time for factory integration into an inverter or gateway, and is a fraction of the cost of standard meters, which may very well be disruptive to all meters used in PV installations.

With many options available, such as conformal coating, C12.20 certification, enclosure options, board mounted CT's, DIN rail and environmental requirements, the "Meter on a Board can be designed as a proprietary revenue-grade PV meter module for OEM manufacturers.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
