Photovoltaic Straight Inline Fuse Connectors 1500VDC
Elmex PV Solar Straight Inline Fuse Connectors (EMPV4IFC1500, EMPV4IFCM1500 and EMPV4IFC1500) are designed for photovoltaic string protection. Offering the flexibility of using either a straight male or female connector at one end with a cable at the other, or employing straight connectors at both ends for string protection with a fuse. these connectors possess a plug and socket design suitable for 2.5, 4.0, 6.0 mm² size cables. Constructed from UV-resistant flame-retardant thermoplastic, they are ideal for deployment in PV power generation systems, utilizing a gPV (cylindrical) fuse of ø 10 x 85 mm.
Photovoltaic Straight Connectors
Elmex PV Solar Straight Connectors, featuring NEC interlock (or IET Interlock) are purpose-built for applications in PV power generation systems. Sporting a male plug and female socket design, these connectors are crafted from UV-resistant flame-retardant thermoplastic. Incorporating a flexible water-tight sealing (ensuring IP68 protection), they are available in male and female versions to minimize the risk of incorrect connections.
These robust PV straight connectors are certified for PV solar cables with diameters of 2.5, 4.0, 6.0 mm². It is imperative to use TUV-certified cables as per standard 2Pfg 1169/EN 50618 to guarantee a proper connection.
Photovoltaic Panel Mount Connectors
Designed for panel mounting connections in PV power generation applications, these PV Solar Panel Connectors, equipped with NEC interlock (IET Interlock) , exude robustness. Constructed from UV-resistant flame-retardant thermoplastic, these connectors find their utility in photovoltaic equipment such as DC Distribution Blocks, Inverters, String Combiner Boxes, etc.
Featuring a hexagonal nut for secure fixation onto a panel, a silicon rubber O-ring provides a protective barrier against water and dust ingress. Versatile in nature, these PV panel connectors seamlessly integrate with some other brands of PV straight connectors.
Photovoltaic Branch Connectors
Tailored for parallel connection with straight photovoltaic male or female connectors, PV Solar Branch Connectors incorporate NEC interlocks. As the name suggests, these branch connectors exhibit three branches – two for inputs (male or female) and one for output (male or female).
Crafted from UV-resistant flame-retardant thermoplastic, these connectors facilitate applications in PV power generation systems. Mating and disconnection can be effortlessly accomplished with an Elmex open-end spanner. These PV branch connectors align seamlessly with leading international brands of a similar construction.
