SOLARBUILDERMAG.COM | 45 Standing Seam Solutions ► Featuring rust-free aluminum alloy and roof-safe oval end set screws, SunModo's new standing seam clamps work on a wide variety of seam profiles. The product family includes 1- and 2-in. clamps available in a 50-mm width standard version with two set screws and a 30-mm width mini version with one set screw. The set screw of the 1-in. EZ Standing Seam Clamp can be installed on either the vertical leg of the clamp or on the 10-degree leg of the clamp. The 2-in. EZ Standing Seam Clamp installs in situ at the desired seam attachment location. No more sliding the clamp up the roof line with this unique two-part assembly. Booth 2876 ► S-5! has released PV Kit 2.0 EdgeGrab and PV Kit 2.0 MidGrab, offering solar panel installers significant improvements and easier installation. Among the improvements to the new PV Kit 2.0: Only one tool needed for installation, preassembled components, installed with the module for reduced layout time, a 1-in. gap between modules for reduced load per ASCE-7. The improved disk design works with all S-5! clamps and exposed-fastened brack- ets. Booth 2476 ► The AceClamp Solar Attachment Kit by PMC Industries is a precision engineered standing seam solar clamp that's one of the fastest installing solar attachment kits on the market. As a rackless-type hold down, the AceClamp A2 along with the Solar Kit offers a low-cost alternative to secure PV panels to SSMRs (Standing Seam Metal Roofs). Plus, its patented, non-penetrating sliding-pin design helps preserve the panel warranty. The same AceClamp can also be used with an L-Foot bracket design for the attachment of rail systems used in other types of PV installations. Booth 2784 ► Solar Connections is introducing the new patent-pending Universal PowerMount- 9000S to be used with virtually any R-Panel Roof System. The f lat base of the single-piece design allows the mount to be installed between ribs making it universal across all R-Panel metal roofs. Use the PowerMount-S with any manufacturer's L-Foot or the Universal L-Foot to attach any rail system or go rail-less with the Solar Connection Kit with and patent-pend- ing GroundBonding Technology. The SCI Kit is UL 1703 and UL 2703 listed and approved. Booth 452 Updated 50-, 60-kW inverter SMA's Sunny Tripower CORE1 inverter is getting an upgrade with two new power classes. In addition to the cur- rently available 50-kW CORE1 model, a new higher power 62.5-kW model is optimized for large projects utilizing higher efficiency modules, and a 33-kW model will be avail- able for projects with smaller or highly segmented arrays as well as 600-V repowering projects. The new CORE1 series will include advanced smart inverter capabilities to fulfill util- ity grid support interconnection requirements, as well as SMA's next-generation DC AFCI technology for compliance to the new UL 1699B standard for arc-fault protection.
