WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Intersolar North America 2013 trade show in San Francisco, the developer and manufacturer of solar racking systems Mounting Systems, Inc. will introduce three new mounting structure products for the photovoltaic market: the Sigma I XL for large open terrain projects, the single-axis tracker Epsilon and a solar canopy product line Omega CI/CII. With these new racking structures, Mounting Systems offers tailor-made and extremely robust solutions for residential carports, commercial and free-field PV power plants of all sizes.
According to Kasim Ersoy, Managing Director of Mounting Systems, Inc. in West Sacramento, CA "the introduction of the three significant new racking systems is a major step for Mounting Systems, Inc. and shows our dedication to the North American photovoltaic market and our customers. These new products are each state-of-the-art in their respective segments and we're quite proud that we will be shipping them throughout the Americas, Asia and the Pacific rim from our own production facilities here in the U.S. and from our partners in Canada."
The Sigma I XL combines the advantages of the open terrain racking systems within the current product portfolio of the Californian company. As a derivative of the well-established Sigma I and Sigma II racking systems, the Sigma I XL is a single-post, driven pile solar substructure designed for commercial to utility-scale open terrain photovoltaic systems. Employing Mounting Systems proprietary, high-strength/low-mass Pi-rail, the Sigma I XL architecture is readily set up and can be configured for both portrait and landscape module orientation in tilt angles up to 35 degrees. Its single-pile design, high degree of preassembly and low parts count contribute to fast installation and low labor-hour requirements. The Sigma I XL is available for immediate delivery.
The new single-axis tracker Epsilon, a device that orientates photovoltaic panels towards the sun, marks Mounting Systems' entry into the solar tracker field. Designed for installation in sections of 448 modules, the system is well suited to large commercial and utility-scale solar projects. The single-axis tracker has been expressly designed to stand up to real-world North American environmental conditions and will continue to track in conditions where other systems normally stow. The tracker's state-of-the-art controls and highly engineered drive system provides reliable positioning as well as selectable back-tracking and self-cleaning. The Epsilon will be available in late 2013.
The new solar canopy Omega CI/CII offers Mounting Systems' customers an attractive, cost-effective shade solution. The product range includes standard and watertight versions to provide both shade and protection from precipitation.
