New ArrayApp lets solar installers register APS microinverters in the field

The new ArrayApp mobile application from APS allows installers to map a PV array and complete the microinverter registration process in the field through their mobile device.

Already renowned for their ease of installation, APS microinverters are now even more installer friendly.

The new ArrayApp mobile application from APS allows installers to map a PV array and complete the microinverter registration process in the field through their mobile device.

"Being able to register a whole PV installation from the job site really simplifies things for installers," said Tommy VanCleave, APS's Technical Support manager. "The ArrayApp is a great new tool that our APS installers will appreciate."

ArrayApp lets installers log in from a remote location and enter system information including microinverter serial numbers and a PV array map.

Serial numbers on each microinverter unit are scanned using a wireless barcode reader or the mobile device's camera, and automatically entered into the APS customer database for warranty and support.

Once the microinverter installation is in the database, PV system performance can be monitored by the owner through any web-enabled device via the APS Energy Monitoring and Analysis software (available separately).

ArrayApp is available for both iPhone and iPad through the Apple iTunes Store. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later, and offers English, German and simplified Chinese language support.

The Android version is available for download at http://www.apsamerica.com.

APS was founded in Silicon Valley in 2009, and is now a global leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of microinverters based on their own proprietary, leading-edge solar technology. APS America, representing APS in the US market, is based near Seattle.

APS ranked No. 2 in global market share among leading microinverter suppliers by shipments in 2013 (source: GTM Research).

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.
