DC Connector with Quick Connection up to 16 mm2
- Published: Wednesday, 04 July 2012 07:56
Phoenix Contact is expanding its Sunclix photovoltaic connector line by adding DC plug connectors for 16 mm² cables. These one-piece plugs have a patented spring connection for connecting DC cables easily and quickly without the need for special tools.
This makes it possible to connect photovoltaic cables with conductor cross-sections ranging from 2.5 mm² to 16 mm² using just two sizes. Rated voltages up to 1500 V and currents up to 65 A further facilitate combining multiple strings into a single string. A screwdriver is required to open the reusable connectors, thus preventing unintentional disconnection. The connectors from Phoenix Contact, which conform to the IP 68 protection class and DIN EN 50521 standard requirements, further enhance the company’s innovative product portfolio for photovoltaic systems.
