|MC3 Solarline 1 Array Output Cables|
Cat. No. 600CABLMC10B
Multi-Contact Solarline family of connectors delivers a flexible system
solution for time-saving, dependable series-cabling of solar modules.
All module manufactures supply their grid-tie modules with pre-assembled
outputcables, tested and ready for connection. This saves considerable
time during an installation and greatly increases reliability over wire junction
boxes. These cable couplers are fully touch-protected and designed
for up to 100 wats and 30 amps. They are also waterproof. For
parallel connection of modules in 12-to 48-volt systems, Multi-Contact makes
branch connectors for use with currents up to 30 amps. In 2007, PV manufactures
began switching to Multi-Contact Solarline 2 locking connectors to meet future
electrical code requirements.
Multi-Contact plug-andplay connector system allows for the PV arrays to
be pre-assembled and pre-wired in the shop or on site. Proper crimping
to the wire and insulator assembly requires special tools.
MC3 Solarline 1 Array Output Cables:
These cables have the old style Multi-Contact soft rubber conectors on
each end. Use the output cables between PV arrays with Multi-Contact
cable outputs and junction boxes or grid-tie inverters. They have a
male connector on one end and a female connector on the other end. Use
them to extend module output cables or cut anywhere along the wire obtain
the needed length of male and female cable to run from the ends of
a module string to a combine box or to an inverter. (Example, if you
need a 30' male and a 20' female, order a 50' cable.) Made with black
#10 AWG USE-2 sunlight-resistant cable.
