S- 5 Improves Mounting Kit
The S-5-Photovoltaic (PV) Kit rail-free
rooftop installation assembly has
received a number of upgrades: The
embossed universal-joint mounting
disc makes the module placement
guide easier to use. Four under-disc
hooks help with wire management.
The grab ears that hold the solar panel
are broader, making installation more
precise. The PV stud can accommodate
solar panel frames up to 64-mm thick.
