Switches Plus Components have announced the introduction of a connector system for photovoltaic modules. The connector system features quality contact and waterproof properties.
With photovoltaic power generation systems, solar cell modules are connected using cables with line to line connectors for better workability. Good contact performance is available from this connector due to the original multi-point contact structure.
The connector system’s IP protection class is IP67 [ip2x when not joined]. TUV recognition has been secured and UL recognition is pending. The connector system is rated at 30A, 600V/1000V and its operating temperature is -40 degree C to +90 degree C.
Another feature is the locking system that cannot be manually undone.
Features of the connector system:
- Cables can be treated for waterproofing using no tools due to the original waterproof structure (top and bottom cover system) for greater workability
- Large current capacity
- Copper alloy spring material with good electrical conductivity used
- Plastics of good weatherability and flame retardancy (UL94V-0) used
- RoHS Directive compliant
