|MC4 Solarline 2 PV-Wire Cables|
Cat. No. MC4- 4mm MC#10
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.
MC4 Solarline 2 PV-Wire Cables:
These cables have the newer, snap-togther Multi-Contact hard plastic conectors
on each end and are made with PV-Wire that has an extra layer of installation
for use on ungrounded arrays in conjuntion with transformless inverters.
This type of wire is required to meet the 2008 NEC if you are using
a transformerless inverter.
