HellermannTyton, the leading solar wire management manufacturer, announces the Series 6 RPC Hanger and Series 6 Fir Tree Fastener. The two products are specifically designed to fit the new Series 6 solar modules manufactured by First Solar. The parts’ purpose-driven design makes them the only fasteners offering a complete wire management solution.

The Series 6 RPC (Ratchet P-Clamp) Hanger can be mounted one-handedly. This proprietary cable clamp dynamically adjusts to different bundle sizes. A steel mounting hanger tolerates high torque and is treated to resist chemicals.

The Series 6 Fir Tree Fastener combines an engineered fir tree with an offset and Solar Tie in a one-piece solution. Designed with single-axis trackers in mind, it demonstrates exceptional extraction resistance, even under movement. It can be pre-installed while modules are still on the pallet.

“Installers are always on the lookout for products and processes that can reduce time in the field,” Nick Korth, Product Marketing Manager – Energies, said. “Since these fasteners are specifically designed for Series 6 modules, they fit like an integrated part of the system, making them more reliable than typical wire management methods.”

Both products are made from high-impact modified, heat-resistant, UV-stabilised material that tolerates UV exposure, chemicals and temperature extremes. No metal comes in contact with wires, so there is no potential for electrical faults caused by sharp, metal fasteners. (mfo)
