Heilind Offers TE Connectivity's Solar Solutions
WILMINGTON, Mass., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest interconnect distributor in North America, is now stocking the full line of TE Connectivity solar products. Heilind's large inventory of TE solar products includes the SOLARLOK product line, solar identification labels and solar relays.
TE's SOLARLOK product line includes PV connectors, junction boxes, grounding clips, grounding bolts and residential combiner boxes. SOLARLOK products deliver a flexible solution for easy, low cost, dependable interconnection from the photovoltaic modules to the DC/AC converter.
TE's SOLARLOK combiner box is a UL 1741-listed, five-stringed, pre-wired unit. It offers 30-second, error-proof terminations through factory wired TE SOLARLOK PV connectors, which have polarity keyed housings to help prevent mismating. In addition, their light-weight, low-profile design, which includes four pre-drilled knock-out selections, offers installation flexibility in various residential solar applications.
SOLARLOK grounding clips bring a new ground connection solution to the market for 10AWG – 12 AWG wire sizes. Termination times are measured in seconds using the pre-mounted clip, thereby saving time and reducing labor costs.
SOLARLOK ground bolts are designed for solar module grounding. Each grounding assembly accepts uninsulated solid copper wire sizes 12 through 6 AWG or uninsulated stranded (having 7 or 19 strands) copper wire sizes 10 through 6 AWG. The grounding assembly is used with metal–framed photovoltaic panels and related products that require grounding for safety reasons.
TE solar identification labels are designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments, and can be exposed to rain, intense sunlight, UV rays, snow, ice, cold temperatures, sand, salt spray and condensation from fog.
Heilind also offers a variety of TE relays designed specially for PV solar applications. These automatic switching units are usually integrated into the inverters of the PV system.
