Australian design and manufacturing company PVDymanics has unveiled a solar canopy technology which can be used with both framed and frameless solar modules. The company believes its system can revolutionize the micro-grid market.
PVDynamics’ Series 100 solar roofing system incorporates PV panels which slide into position “quickly and easily” and are suitable for both framed and frameless solar modules.
Andrew Ferris, director of design and business development at PVDynamics, said the company had identified a gap in the market and had designed a solar mounting system suitable for a broad range of PV modules.
“We saw what was available in Australia and set out to create a solar mounting system … suitable for a wide range of solar panels,” he said.
“The challenge was to ensure the PVDynamics system be suitable for a wide range of different panel types, both framed and frameless, while being truly waterproof.”
Ferris said the design also addressed the risk of cell micro-cracking damage during installation and maintenance. While many of the existing mounting systems require installers to work over the top of solar modules, the Series 100 system includes a fully incorporated wiring and clip system which allows all fixing and wiring adjustments to be conducted from under the canopy.
