NO-FLEX THE PERFECT ACCESSORY FOR LARGE-SIZED PANELS
Among the latest innovations, which we will discuss extensively during the three-day exhibition in Rimini, No-Flex is undoubtedly one of the most interesting. In recent years, PV module manufacturers have tended towards making thinner and larger panels. This evolution has led to many advantages in terms of increased productivity and lightness. But every change always brings with it new challenges, and in this case the main one is providing a support structure that ensures the maximum strength of the panel, especially in terms of the bending in the central part that might occur in response to stresses from wind, the weight of snow, or simply from the passage of time and the progressive loss of rigidity of the module itself.
No-Flex is the new accessory that Sun Ballast has developed especially for large panels, respecting the goal of offering only practical, simple and quick to install solutions: a steel plate is added to an additional ballast inserted under the central part of the module, which by increasing the fastening points ─ from 4 to 6, complying with the indications of panel manufacturers ─ also consequently increases the overall strength and durability of the system. The ballasts already have an M8 threaded insert, and No-Flex is as extremely easy and fast to install as all other Sun Ballast systems.
SIMPLIFY DESIGN WITH INSUN
Other important news, which we will continue to explore in our well-attended webinars, concerns InSun, the leading design software for photovoltaic systems with which Sun Ballast has been collaborating for years. The goal? To develop an increasingly easy and intuitive platform that simplifies all stages of design as much as possible. With InSun, designing a photovoltaic system becomes much faster, and the latest version contains numerous updates that now make this software a concrete benchmark: for example, it is now possible to completely customize the characteristics of the panels, freely selecting size and power according to the customer’s needs; it also expands the range of accessories available, which now includes the new No-Flex system and Cablowind, the additional weight patented by Sun Ballast that not only significantly increases the stability of installations but also allows cables to be housed inside it neatly and professionally. With the new version of InSun, additionally, defining a precise Bill of Materials becomes even easier, and the ability to share all technical documentation directly from your smartphone speeds up all communication steps, both with our Technical Department and with contractors.
But there are still many new things to come: come visit us in Rimini to discover them all!
