HellermannTyton Debuts Two Extreme-Duty Solar Module Cable Fasteners

Solar fasteners manufacturer HellermannTyton, has announced the availability of a high-performance button mount with cable tie and locking clamp. The two products fit the predrilled holes of most solar modules. They are rated for extended life in demanding outdoor environments.

The Locking Clamp fully closes and locks over a cable bundle. This fastener features an integrated fir tree mount for easy installation and includes a saddle for adding an optional Solar Tie and extending its bundle capacity. Designed with single-axis trackers in mind, it has a hi8gh extraction resistance.

“Many installers run standard cable ties directly through sharp module holes, probably because it’s fast and easy; but unfortunately, those ties will fail prematurely,” says product marketing manager, Energies Nick Korth. “So, we made these mounts easy to install but tough enough to withstand sun, wind and movement within module holes for years.”

Both products fit holes from 9×12 mm to 9×14 mm and can manage several cables. They are manufactured of high impact modified, heat-resistant, UV stabilized material, which is ideal for long-term performance in the full range of weather and climate extremes.
