Molex SolarSpec Targets Green Energy

LISLE, Ill. — Molex will showcase its SolarSpec™ solutions at Solar Power International 2010, which is being held October 12-14, 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, CA. SolarSpec™ products are designed to support efficient, reliable and flexible interconnections for photovoltaic panels, solar trackers and concentrators, and solar inverters.

“Our interconnect products drive innovation in data, telecommunications, consumer electronics, industrial, transportation, medical, military/aerospace and, most recently, the solid state lighting and audio industries,” said Peter Commane, product manager, Molex. “In 2009, we unveiled 221 new products, including the SolarSpec™ portfolio for the renewable energy market. Across all industries, Molex solutions make our customers’ jobs easier and businesses more profitable.”

Addressing key applications within the global solar industry, SolarSpec™ products support efficient, reliable, and flexible solar interconnections. The Molex junction box and cable assemblies are designed for installation on the back of mono- and polycrystalline photovoltaic (PV) solar modules, providing the interface between the conductor ribbons on the panel and the DC I/O cables. The innovative junction box can be attached to the PV solar panel using robotic pick-and-place, thereby simplifying panel assembly and reducing production time and costs.

“Tremendous growth within the solar-power market is fueling competition in the manufacture of PV solar panels. The automated fabrication of PV modules improves efficiencies, product integrity, and reduces production overhead,” adds Commane.

SolarSpec™ products are manufactured in ISO certified production plants and designed to resist long-term UV and ozone, and to meet stringent energy requirements, including: UL 1703, IEC, IP67/IP68/IP69, NEC and NEC2008, and RoHS compliance.

The SolarSpec™ Junction Box is the latest addition in a developing range of Molex connectors and cables assemblies for solar applications. For more information, please visit the Molex exhibit at Solar Power International 2010 (booth 1731).
