Phoenix Contact is expanding its proven Sunclix solar connector program by adding a DC plug-in connector with crimp connection for machine installation.
Two different sizes of contact inserts allow the connection of cables with cross sections of 2.5 mm² to 6 mm² (AWG 14-10). Prices in line with the market and a connector construction that meets the needs of the market make the plug-in connector with crimp connection suitable for use with PV modules. Voltages of up to 1500 V and currents of up to 40 A allow future-oriented use in temperature ranges of -40 to +90 °C.
The plug-in connectors fulfil the requirements of Protection Class IP68 (24 h/2 m) and have been submitted for certification according to UL 6703 and German Institute for Standardisation (DIN) EN 50521.
