Title
(EN) WIRE MANAGEMENT RACKING SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MOUNTING PHOTOVOLTAIC SOLAR MODULES
(FR) SYSTÈME DE RAYONNAGE DE GESTION DE FIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE MONTAGE DE MODULES SOLAIRES PHOTOVOLTAÏQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A framed PV module rooftop and ballasted ground mount racking system by which the mounting structure also functions as a wire management system and operates as an electrical raceway that includes a plurality of North-South mounting structures, oriented in a North-South direction, each of the North-South mounting structures including a North-South open-air channel for receiving wires, and each of the North-South mounting structures configured for supporting a solar module at a selected tilt angle; a plurality of East-West mounting structures, oriented in an East-West direction, each of the East-West mounting structures including an East-West open-air channel for receiving wires, wherein the coupling of said North-South mounting structures to said East-West mounting structures forms a continuous, open-air, electrical raceway with intersections within an array for module connectivity.
(FR)
Un système de rayonnage de montage au sol lesté et au toit de modules photovoltaïques encadrés grâce auquel la structure de montage fonctionne également en tant que système de gestion de fil et fonctionne comme un chemin de câble électrique qui comprend une pluralité de structures de montage nord-sud, orientées dans une direction nord-sud, chacune des structures de montage nord-sud comprenant un canal d'air ouvert nord-sud pour recevoir des fils, et chacune des structures de montage nord-sud étant configurée pour supporter un module solaire à un angle d'inclinaison sélectionné ; une pluralité de structures de montage est-ouest, orientées dans une direction est-ouest, chacune des structures de montage est-ouest comprenant un canal d'air ouvert est-ouest pour recevoir des fils, le couplage desdites structures de montage nord-sud auxdites structures de montage est-ouest formant un chemin de câble électrique continu ouvert à l'air avec des intersections à l'intérieur d'un réseau pour une connectivité de module.
