Solar End Clamp
Use Mid-clamp and End-clamp with strut-based racking system. Our patented design features stainless steel teeth that pierce into anodized aluminum, providing a gas tight connection which prevents oxidation. Meets uplift loads of 350 lbs.
Electrical Cable & Wire Management
Steel Conduit & Fittings
Our conduit product portfolio is comprehensive and features steel, aluminum, and PVC substrates. We have pioneered conduit technology.
Corrugated Flexible Conduit
Our commercial and industrial flexible liquid tight conduits come in both metallic and non-metallic options. Metallic flexible liquid tight conduit is constructed of hot dipped zinc galvanized low carbon steel core.
Aluminum Conduit & Fittings
Aluminum conduit, elbows, and couplings combine light weight and corrosion resistance to provide a full line of easy-to-install, low-maintenance conduit raceway whenever specifications call for aluminum.
HDPE conduit is flexible, easily installed, and requires minimal labor. It is chemically resistant, has a long service life, and is not susceptible to rust, rot, or electrolysis.
PVC/Fiberglass Conduit & Fittings
We have a complete line of conduit, fittings, access fittings, elbows, boxes, and accessories.
Non-Metallic Liquid tight
Our products are designed for use in wet, dry, or oily locations as a flame resistant, non-metallic raceway for power, control, and communications cables.
Flexible Metal Conduit & Fittings
We have pre-wired armored and metal-clad cables, flexible wiring systems, flexible metal, non-metallic, flexible metallic liquid tight conduits, and fittings.
Cable Tray, Wire Basket & Steel Ladder
Our cable tray systems feature a line of metal and fiberglass cable tray systems including center-hung cable trays and wire basket trays for cable management. They provide a clear direction and path for photovoltaic and medium voltage cables.
Site Perimeter Security & Safety
We have exterior perimeter security tape for use as a deterrence against intrusion while eliminating any danger associated with sharp razor wire.
Use it for perimeter fencing security, and it is compatible with razor panels and other concertina coils.
We have a broad range of signposts, breakaway systems, and accessories designed for quick and easy installation.
Galvanized Fence Posts
Customizable galvanized steel tubing is used for perimeter fence post.
We have crash-rated, fixed, removable, and retractable bollards for perimeter security.
A solar panel array is a string of solar panels connected in series. The solar panels are usually connected with solar cable and MC4 connectors. The maximum number of solar panels per string depends on the actual input voltage of the solar inverter.
Photovoltaic mounting systems (also called solar module racking) are used to fix solar panels on surfaces like roofs, building facades, or the ground. These mounting systems generally enable retrofitting of solar panels on roofs or as part of the structure of the building (called BIPV).
Solar racking systems are used to safely fix solar panels to various surfaces such as roofs, building facades, or the ground. The system is designed to easily be retrofitted to existing rooftops and structures.
The inverter converts the direct current (DC) electricity generated by the solar panel to alternating current (AC) electricity, in order to be used by the electrical grid.
The role of the combiner box is to combine the strings from the solar panels into one box. Each string is attached to a fuse terminal; the output of the fuse terminals is combined into a single cable that connects to the inverter box.
Solar panel transformers convert the DC voltage coming out of the photovoltaic systems and step it up to the rated output. This can also be called as a solar inverter transformer because it inverts DC to AC.
Substations are fenced facility owned and operated by utilities. They convert high voltages to low voltages, or vice versa. Substations are necessary because of differences in voltages.
Battery Energy Storage
Battery energy storages reserve energy for later consumption and is charged by a connected solar system. The stored electricity is consumed after sundown, during energy demand peaks, or during a power outage.
Rooftop solar power systems, or rooftop PV systems, are photovoltaic systems that have electricity-generating solar panels mount on the rooftop of a residential buildings, commercial buildings, and other structures.
Solar canopies are custom-built outdoor structures designed to hold an overhead solar array. They allow for distributed solar energy generation, that is, the production of solar electricity onsite.
