Solar Energy System Connectors & Accessories

MC4 connector

It is a special connector used to connect solar panel cables. Makes the connection point IP67 waterproof. It is designed for outdooor use, thus it is UV proof.

MC4 branch connector

It is a special connector to connect more than one panel in parallel. Two, three or four solar panels can easily be connected in parallel with MC4 branch connector. Makes the connection point IP67 waterproof. It is designed for outdooor use, thus it is UV proof.

MC4 diode connector

It is used in a solar energy systems with panels connected in parallel. It stops the interference between the panels under sun and panels under shadow. Lets the energy to pass only one way. Makes the connection point IP67 waterproof. It is designed for outdooor use, thus it is UV proof.

Cable

The cable section shall be carefully calculated accordingly with cable length and power while making a solar energy project. Low section cables may result in efficiency losses and can create rşsks like fire. Cables to be used shall be multi wired. The cable should be chosen according to the project location. For instance, thin plated marine cable shall be chosen for a marine project. If the cables are placed under sunlight, the top coaating must be UV resistant.



Fuse

A fuse shall be installed at the output of the controller in case the system needs to be shut down. The fuse capacity must be suitable for system power.
