Solar Multi-Pin PV Connector from Anderson Power
Multi-pin PV connector.
Sterling, MA — Solar SPEC Pak® from Anderson Power Products® (APP) is the first multi-pin connector to meet the photovoltaic industry requirements specified in UL 6703A, passing the same harsh environmental tests used to qualify solar panels. Solar SPEC Pak has power-handling capabilities up to 1000V and includes a locking latch that complies with NEC 2008 section 690.33(C) requirements. Designed for wire-to-wire applications, Solar SPEC Pak is capable of handling up to 4 individual lines, which reduces the number of traditional connectors needed in solar applications, minimizing the amount of space needed while lowering installation costs.

The product's IP68 rated shell has a flammability rating of UL 94 V-0 and a weatherability rating of F1 per UL 746C. The housing is touch-safe per UL 1977 when used with Fingerproof Powerpole® housing and has a temperature range of -40 to +105°C (-40 to +221°F).

The Solar SPEC Pak will hold up to 4 Powerpole power contacts, 16 signal contacts or a combination of both. Individually, the power contacts are rated up to 40amps and are capable of handling wire sizes of 20 to 10 AWG (0.50 to 4mm2).

Ground contacts are First Mate/Last Break in accordance with NEC 2008 and can occupy any of the connectors' 4 positions. Contact housings, both finger proof and standard, are available in a wide array of colors offering color-coding options and design flexibility. The combination of housings, power, ground and signal, that can be installed in a user determined configuration, provide thousands of design options for the most demanding applications.
