WILMINGTON, Mass. — Heilind Electronics, the largest interconnect distributor in North America, is now stocking Amphenol Industrial's Helios H4 Panel Connectors for photovoltaic systems. H4 Panel Connectors utilize RADSOK® technology and offer high current ratings and low contact resistance, resulting in lower power loss. They are compatible with standard industry connectors, including Amphenol's Helios H4 line, for easy integration.
This new connector was developed to feed power from a solar panel into an inverter or combiner box, and features quick-snap mating for easy panel mount installation and termination to either box. “We're pleased to offer our customers Amphenol's Helios H4 Panel Connector,” said Alan Clapp, Heilind Vice President – Supplier Business. “Helios H4 connectors meet all NEC 2008 requirements and their innovative design makes them the ideal choice for many PV applications.”
Designed for applications that use solar inverters, combiner boxes and installers, the H4 Panel Connector is designed to be used with three different wire gauges: 14 AWG rated at 36 A; 12 AWG rated at 45 A; and 10 AWG rated at 52 A. The H4 Panel Connector is RoHS compliant, UV and Ozone resistant, and comes ready for field assembly.
