Connection technology for building-integrated photovoltaics

Phoenix Contact (Blomberg, Germany) : 23 July, 2013  (New Product)
Phoenix Contact is introducing a junction box for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). This single-terminal connection element is the third member of the Sunclix BIPV product family; its adjustable width makes it easy to integrate into insulating glass modules. The company is also expanding its portfolio of AC plug connectors for photovoltaic systems.
Connection technology for building-integrated photovoltaics

In conjunction with miniature DC plug connectors and a diode box to prevent inverted string currents, the entire connection system can be installed out of sight in the window frame or facade area. This opens up entirely new possibilities for architects and building planners.

The junction box, which is sealed at the same time as the insulating glass module, can handle currents up to 15A and voltages up to 1000V. With the Sunclix BIPV product range, Phoenix Contact is now offering a full-scale connection system from junction box to field cabling.

AC plug connectors for photovoltaic systems

The new three- and five-pole PRC series connects AC cables to inverters reliably and conveniently.

While the device plug connectors with crimp connections are delivered already pre-assembled with pre-connected wires, the rigid and flexible plug connector cables are connected using proven screw connections. The three-pole version is designed for currents up to 35A, and the five-pole version handles up to 30A. Both versions are approved for voltages up to 600V and fulfil the high requirements of the IP68 protection class.

The plug connector locks automatically during insertion. To safeguard against unintentional disconnection, a tool is required to disconnect the plug connector from the device connector. The plug can also be protected using a safety seal.
