Connector for solar installations

18 August 2010 Interconnection

Lapp Kabel has developed the new EPIC SOLAR 4 Thin solar connector for photovoltaic plants, with a low contact resistance of less than 0,2 m.

Featuring a 4 mm connector system with twin engagement hooks, photovoltaic modules can be connected together rapidly and securely. The patented contact system prevents significant increases in temperature due to current flow, thus reducing the ageing process on the connector. The temperature range is from -40°C to +105°C and the strain relief values are very high.

At 12 mm, the EPIC SOLAR 4 Thin has a particularly flat design. This enables the preassembled connectors to be packed efficiently and means less space is required for their installation later on. They are available with a wide spectrum of conductor cross-sections ranging from 1,5 mm² to 6 mm². As an additional security feature, the connector comes equipped with a tailored pull-out order, thanks to special welded connections. It also successfully passed inspection by the TÜV Rheinland (EN 50521) for connectors in photovoltaic systems.
