Solar Photovoltaic Inverter Mounting Kit ( Solar Thermal Magazine )
SAN FRANCISCO, July 3, 2014. – AET (Applied Energy Technologies) is pleased to announce the recent launch of RAYPORT™ – I, an innovative Solar Inverter Mounting Kit for string inverters, which will be on display at AET booth #9133, at Intersolar North America, from July 7-10, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
After identifying a growing need in the solar market for an inverter racking solution, AET responded with the design and manufacture of the RAYPORT™ – I, its first-in-kind inverter mounting kit, giving installers a simple, fast and cost effective mounting solution for both rooftop and ground-mounted solar arrays.
Rigorously tested, the RAYPORT™ – I can withstand the most challenging environmental conditions. It fits most string inverters on the market, can mount at a 15 or 30 degree tilt and can be used in both rooftop and ground mount systems. Made of stainless steel, it is corrosion resistant and offers superior durability. At only 13 lbs, the RAYPORT™ – I is lightweight and compact, reducing shipping costs and enabling easier handling on the job site. The RAYPORT™ – I is ideal for solar systems in a variety of sizes and configurations. For rooftop installations, the RAYPORT™ – I can be installed without penetrating the roof. Units are available for immediate shipment.
John Harberts, VP of Product Development at AET, said,
In the past, solar rooftop system designers were often hampered by space constraints and would have to develop their own ad-hoc custom solution for the inverter placement. It is often time-consuming and challenging to find a suitable and easy place to put the inverter in roof mount systems.
“We believe that design innovation and cost control go hand in hand and we are constantly challenging our engineers to deliver innovative, high quality solutions to meet the quality, service and value our customers have come to expect. The RAYPORT™ – I is the first product of its kind and provides a simple and reliable solution to this design challenge. It saves valuable installation time and helps minimize installation-related maintenance issues, it is also designed to work within developers’ budget constraints,” continued Mr. Harberts.
