First Solar Series 6 Fasteners

HellermannTyton First Solar Series 6 Fasteners

Does an advanced module warrant an innovative wire management solution?

First Solar’s Series 6 modules feature shorter leads, and split junction boxes reduce the need for those wires to be managed. In order to maximize the advantages of this new design, HellermannTyton developed wire management components that are specifically engineered to reduce labor and provide unrivaled performance for EPCs, contractors and engineers utilizing Series 6 modules.

One-handed installation and peerless performance in the most severe environments

Series 6 RPC HangerOur Series 6 RPC Hanger offers one-handed, toolless simplicity for mounting. With its adjustable sizing, it’s an excellent choice for managing wires and cables on First Solar modules.

The robust design and solar-optimized materials make it ideal for heavy duty, outdoor applications. The RPC Hanger’s one-piece adjustable clamp can be closed by hand to the desired diameter, replacing multiple sizes of fixed-diameter fasteners. An integrated release enables easy and nondestructive removal of cables by inserting a flat-head screwdriver. This allows the clamp to be reused without removing it. Four sizes accommodate bundles from 1/4" to 2" in diameter.

Features and Benefits

  • Impact modified, heat and UV stabilized PA66 provides long-term durability in solar applications.

  • One-piece ratchet closure design allows for easy installation during pre- or final assembly.

  • Three sizes handle a wide range of diameters, reducing part inventory.

  • Release feature allows for quick adjustments and maintenance.

  • First Solar specific steel mounting hanger tolerates high torque and is treated to resist chemicals.

Versatile and pre-installation ready

Series 6 Fir Tree FastenerThe Series 6 Fir Tree Fastener is the easiest and fastest wire management solution on the market. It features a head design specifically tailored for First Solar Series 6 Modules.

The entire fir tree passes through the module’s wire management hole to prevent unintended disengagement. This fastener’s unique barrel head rests on the module lip to relieve the fir tree of downward forces. An offset keeps bundles the perfect distance from the mounting hole, allowing nondestructive movement due to wind or tracker motion. The bent tail design allows quick and simple installations by hand.

Features and Benefits

  • HIRHSUV Solar Ties provide excellent resistance to UV, chemical and moisture sensitive environments.

  • Can be pre-installed while modules are still on the pallet.

  • Barrel and offset head design reduce potential for abrasion and wear.

  • First Solar vetted design.
