Promising to lower automated assembly costs, the SolarSpec junction box and cable assemblies install on the back of mono- and polycrystalline photovoltaic (PV) solar modules. They provide the interface between the conductor ribbons on the panel and the dc I/O cables. The junction box features spring terminals connecting the base directly to the PV ribbon conductors without the need for retention clamps or clips. Optional patented Solder Charge Technology facilitates high-speed assembly and eliminates the need for hand-soldering of the ribbon. Optional double-sided tape removes the need for curing time on silicone when attaching the connector base to a module. The junction box assembly comes with two removable dc cables available in dual- or single-qualified versions. For more information, call MOLEX INC., Lisle, IL. (800) 786-6539.
