SOLARLOK Photovoltaic Interconnection Systems

TE Connectivity UL and TUV approved SOLARLOK product portfolio delivers a flexible solution for easy and reliable interconnections of solar thermal and photovoltaic applications, including crystalline modules, thin-film modules, shingle/tile, BIPV and the balance of system (BOS).

   

TE Connectivity SOLARLOK PV4 Connector

TE Connectivity's new SOLARLOK PV4 connector provides reliable solar connections for a wide range of applications. This connector solutions, which is easy to assemble and mateable with the with the typical connectors and tooling in the market, offers lower contact resistance compared to our standard line and thus maximizes the total power output.

   

Micro SOLARLOK

The Micro SOLARLOK system consists of a miniature, low–profile junction box with integral leads. Designed for emerging space–efficient thin–film and roof–shingle photovoltaic applications, the junction box's low 9.3–mm height saves considerable space compared to the 15– to 20–mm heights common in the industry.

   

UL 1741-Listed, Five-String, Pre-Wired Combiner Box For Residential Use

The five-string combiner box offers 30-second, error-proof terminations through factory pre-wired TE SOLARLOK connectors, which have polarity keyed housings to help prevent mismating. Additionally, its light-weight, low-profile design, which includes four pre-drilled knock-out selections, offers installation flexibility in residential applications.

   

SOLARLOK Junction Box Assemblies

TE Connectivity introduces one of the smallest junction boxes in the Photovoltaic (PV) industry -- the SOLARLOK slim junction box. This 15.5 mm by 52 mm junction box distributes DC power to a solar panel in a convenient, compact design that minimizes visibility on the back of a panel.

A new four-rail compact medium junction box for terminating foils of a PV panel has recently been released by TE. Featuring an extremely low profile and a segmented solder area, this junction box saves potting material for the solar industry OEMs when connecting the foils on their solar panels.

The SOLARLOK straddle edge junction boxes are small profile, modular design junction boxes developed for BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics) applications. These junction boxes can be mounted at the edge of the crystalline and thin film glass-glass solar panel modules. This series of products consists of junction boxes, plus socket connector, minus socket connector, end socket connector and cable assemblies.

   

SOLARLOK Locking Collar

The SOLARLOK locking collar connector accessory is applied to the fully mated cable coupler male and female connectors. This connector latch locking collar helps to prevent any access to the cable coupler release feature thus making accidental disconnects a thing of the past. In order to release the connector latch locking collar, a simple flathead screwdriver will need to be inserted into the screwdriver slot, lifted and slid back to expose the connector squeeze to release wings. This action will open the locking accessory and qualify as a “tooled extraction.”

   

Solar Identification Labels

TE Connectivity labels are designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments. The labels can be exposed to rain, intense sunlight, UV rays, snow, ice, cold temperature, sand, salt spray and condensation from fog. The solar labels meet the requirements of the IEC 61215 / IEC 61646. The Solar Rating Labels are designed to meet the industry needs by providing a white printable area to add important system information such as maximum system voltage and system current.

   

SolKlip Ground Clips

The TE Connectivity SolKlip grounding clip brings a new ground connection solution to the market by utilizing well-known insulation displacement technology. ... Termination times are measured in seconds using the pre-mounted TE SolKlip grounding clip, thereby saving time and reducing labor costs

   

SOLKLAMP Ground Bolt

These bolts are designed for solar module grounding applications using solid copper uninsulated 6 AWG to 12 AWG wire. The grounding assembly consists of a wire bolt (wire slot on one end and threaded post on the other), wire binding hex nut, and mounting hex washer nut. The grounding assembly is used with metal–framed photovoltaic (solar) panels and related products that require grounding for safety reasons.

   

Solar Relays

Photovoltaic solar energy systems consist of a PV-generator (solar modules) and a power inverter with a connection to the power line. The advantage of these systems is that the solar energy can be fed into the public power grid and energy can be taken out of the network if necessary. It is precisely at the feed-in interface to the power grid that electromechanical relays find their main application area. Safety measures require an automatic switching unit with circuit break function between the generating equipment and the feed-in point into the power grid. TE offers a variety of relays for your solar application needs.
