The Sunclix connectors with crimp connection for automated assembly processes from Phoenix Contact enable the easy and reliable cabling of photovoltaic panels.
The device connector with Unlock system is a new addition. This allows the connector to be conveniently unlocked without using a special tool and is particularly suitable for cabling inverters and string combiner boxes. Silver-plated contacts ensure connection technology with long-term stability. The connectors are designed for currents up to 40 A (IEC) / 50 A (UL) and voltages up to 1,500 V (IEC/UL).
In addition, new Sunclix spring-cage connectors are available for conductor cross-sections from 6 to 16 mm² (AWG 10 / AWG 6). They are also equipped with silver-plated contacts and the patented Unlock system. The spring-cage connectors for large conductor cross-sections are suitable for joining photovoltaic panel strings together and connecting higher currents. Conduction losses are reduced. The connectors with spring-cage connection are designed for currents up to 60 A (IEC) / 80 A (UL) and voltages up to 1,500 V (IEC/UL).
All products are certified in accordance with IEC 62852 and UL 6703. The international certifications ensure that the connector range meets current and future requirements. All new products also satisfy a high degree of protection in accordance with IP66, IP68 (24 h/2 m).
