To support First Solar’s thin-film module technology, FTC developed a new product variant of its Voyager mounting solution. The variant uses FTC’s patented Slide and Glide methodology and First Solar’s SpeedSlot mounting feature. The installation uses a mechanical fastener to secure and ground the First Solar module frame to the Voyager system’s module rail, intending to decrease install times.
“We combined First Solar’s SpeedSlot solution with FTC’s patented Slide and Glide rapid module installation methodology that ensures robust module capture to our rail. Several nuances in the rail design enable the integrated solution to work well together. It is a testament to our engineering team’s prowess and adaptability,” said Nagendra Cherukupalli, CTO at FTC Solar.
