Phoenix Contact has introduced Sunclix, a DC plug and receptacle connector system for PV applications. The connectors can be assembled in the field or factory, greatly reducing the cost of installation. The one-piece DC connectors use spring technology for quick and easy assembly and termination, without the use of crimp tools. The connectors can only be disconnected with the use of a screwdriver, which eliminates the possibility of accidental release while meeting NEC requirements. The new plug-in connectors also make it possible to connect PV conductors from 14 AWG to 6 AWG, with a voltage of up to 1500 V IEC 1000 V UL using only two versions. The connectors, classified with IP69 degree of protection (2 m/24 h), meet the requirements of the DIN EN 50521 standard and are ETL-certified to UL 6703.
