WILMINGTON, Mass. (PRWEB) September 12, 2019
Heilind Electronics, a leading global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectivity and sensors, recently introduced the manufacturer’s new SOLARLOK 2.0 connector. This new connector enables solar installers to make in-field panel connections more easily, quickly and cost-effectively.
TE Connectivity’s SOLARLOK 2.0 is a toolless field-installable product that uses Insulation Displacement Contact (IDC) technology to create a connection between panels and cables without the need for any specialized tooling. The connectors incorporate a closed-spring-cage to ensure constant termination force. Cables do not have to be stripped prior to making a connection, making installation 80 percent faster than with standard photovoltaic (PV) DC connectors that contain multiple components and crimp contacts. Because no custom tools are needed, installation is quick and easy, and total system costs are significantly lower.
SOLARLOK 2.0 connectors are available in both male and female versions and are gel-filled, which is a unique feature in the solar market to ensure IPX8 water ingress protection. These connectors are ideal for PV installers, PV systems and inverters.
