90-degree metal edge clip

15 Jul 2018

On many utility solar farms, it is common to skip string, or leapfrog, module wires to reduce BOM costs. Typically, the wire is barely long enough to connect the module leads. This clip’s 90-degree configuration eliminates a bend in each cable, leaving more wire available for a secure connection. The clip’s design, with its large push point, is especially easy on installers’ thumbs. Combined with low insertion force, no tools are needed to mount the clip. Yet, it features excellent extraction force on any panel edge, particularly along low-profile solar module frames and module interface brackets. Being UL Listed and Recognized streamlines the inspection process, critical in an industry where lost time and part replacement costs escalate exponentially. This configuration joins a family of heavy duty and low-profile metal and plastic “Solar E-Clips.”
