[Colorado Springs, CO] Best known for its suite of nonpenetrating attachment solutions for standing seam metal roofing, S-5! now offers an attachment solution for exposed fastener metal roofing. The new Versa-Bracket-47 from S-5! is a strong and cost effective attachment for face-fastened metal roof profiles. The bracket is load strength tested to 1,283 pounds ultimate on standard 16-gauge purlins. This impressive holding strength means that fewer attachments are needed to withstand project loads. The encapsulated butyl sealant base design virtually eliminates the possibility of leaks or corrosion. The Versa-Bracket-47 can also be ordered with custom attachment holes.

[Albuquerque, NM] In an effort to increase quality and simplicity in racking installations, Unirac has introduced its Flat Flashing. This two-part flashing is intended for use on any composition asphalt shingle roof and requires sealant only when the installer feels it is necessary. The 8-inch-by-12-inch flashing has a factory-installed gasket to seal the lag screw penetration point. The flashing also comes standard with a square aluminum plate, which gives the L foot a solid surface to sit on and places the gasket in compression to create a positive seal. The flashing is compatible with all Unirac roof-mount and tilt-up arrays.

[Marysville, WA, and Mount Iron, MN] Silicon Energy’s new Cascade Series of PV modules and integrated racking is now available. The double-glass, open-frame module and racking system is well suited for overhead structures such as canopies and carports where aesthetics are a primary concern. The modules are certified to 125 pounds per square foot and allow 10% light transmission through the use of two layers of glass for the cell encapsulation. The associated racking system conceals array wiring. It supports the modules in a slightly overlapping position with frameless top and bottom edges, which facilitates shedding debris that may collect on the array. The revised module line features an antireflective coating on the front glass, is lighter weight (3.89 pounds-per-square-foot for module and racking) than the previous Cascade Series and includes 12 AWG leads with Amphenol connectors. The US-made Cascade Series modules are available with rated outputs of 190 W to 205 W STC and come standard with a 30-year power and 5-year limited product warranty.

[Eugene, OR] DECK Monitoring has added two commercial solar thermal system monitoring packages to its existing suite of PV monitoring solutions. The new web-based products are configured for systems with either 2-inch or smaller inlet and outlet piping or with 2.5-inch or larger piping. Both packages include a BTU meter and revenue-grade monitoring of six data points: two temperature probes (cold water inlet and hot water storage tank outlet), one flow-rate meter (cold water inlet), and three current transformers (CTs) for monitoring energy use for up to two pumps and one backup electric water heater. A data acquisition and logging gateway comes standard with each package. Optional add-on components consist of energy monitoring equipment for natural gas and fuel oil backup water heaters, weather stations, display devices and interactive kiosks. Data point monitoring for additional CTs and temperature probes is also available.
