Applications

From racking mechanical tube and mounting systems to high performance flexible conduit and everything in between, Atkore is uniquely positioned to meet the ever growing demand for solar energy, wherever that might be.

Panel / Array

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.

Mounting Structure

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).

Racking System

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

Inverter

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.

Combiner Box

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.

Transformer

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

Substation

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

Rooftop solar power systems, or rooftop PV systems, are photovoltaic systems that have electricity-generating solar panels mount on the rooftop of a residential or commercial building or structure.
