Lumos Solar, based in Boulder, Colo., has introduced the LSX Module System. According to the company, this is the industry's first frameless solar module system with plug-and-play racking and wiring.
LSX modules are available in three different color options that better suit contemporary home design and give discerning buyers and utility integrators a choice in the appearance of their system, Lumos Solar explains. The frameless module design further improves on the appearance of a clean energy system by giving a solar array a glassy, seamless look, more like a skylight or tinted window, rather than the industrial appearance of standard, aluminum-framed solar modules.
Traditional solar arrays use aluminum-framed modules from one manufacturer, mounting clamps and racking from a second and wiring from a third, and installation requires cutting and splicing wires and time-consuming alignment of the different elements, according to Lumos Solar. In contrast, LSX is a single, streamlined product with a low-profile frameless module, plug-in wiring connections and a rack optimized with indexed mounting for fast and accurate module-to-rack connection, the company says.
