Advanced Energy Industries Inc. has released a low-profile accessory used to install AE 3TL string inverters at the edge of a rooftop solar array.
Advanced Energy says the accessory enables string inverters to be installed in a horizontal (0 degrees) orientation. The company says the feature increases site design flexibility and improves overall system performance while enabling compliance with new NEC 2014 rapid shutdown requirements.
The mounting flanges are compatible with DURA-BLOK and UNISTRUT hardware. The installation accessory is commercially available for AE 3TL 12 kW, 16 kW, 20 kW and 23 kW models.
