To support First Solar's thin-film module modern technology, FTC established a new product variation of its Voyager mounting solution. The variant uses FTC's copyrighted Slide as well as Glide methodology and First Solar's SpeedSlot mounting function. The setup utilizes a mechanical fastener to secure and also ground the First Solar module frame to the Voyager system's module rail, planning to reduce mount times.

"We combined First Solar's SpeedSlot solution with FTC's trademarked Slide and Glide rapid module installation methodology that makes certain durable module capture to our rail. Numerous nuances in the rail style make it possible for the incorporated solution to work well with each other. It is a testimony to our engineering group's expertise and also adaptability," stated Nagendra Cherukupalli, CTO at FTC Solar.
