Weidmüller’s – 'Photovoltaic Junction Box' (IP65) with a max. rated current
of 8.5 A for photovoltaic modules. – Innovative and unique connection,
installation and sealing concept. – 'Photovoltaic Junction Box' fitted fully
automatically or manually during the production of photovoltaic modules.
Weidmüller designed its innovative 'Photovoltaic Junction Box' with IP65
protection and a max. rated current of 8.5 A solely for robot-based, fully
automated production of photovoltaic modules. Thanks to its innovative design
the junction box simplifies the production process of photovoltaic modules
appreciably and makes a lasting contribution towards reducing costs. The
'Photovoltaic Junction Box' also helps to simplify manual production methods
considerably: The housing concept is based on a two-piece design with top and
bottom parts to simplify fitting procedures through a straightforward 'Plug & Play
insert'. This concept also supports rapid exchange if servicing becomes
necessary, a procedure that does not negatively affect the ingress protection
rating of the box. The 'Photovoltaic Junction Box' features a compact design
measuring just 162 mm x 77 mm x 29 mm (length x width x height). Cables are
permanently attached to the top right and left of the top part of the housing. With
MC4 plug-in connectors attached to them these connection cables enter the top
part of the housing through a cable entry fitting that features an innovative strain
relief and sealing system. In comparison with conventional entry systems this
permanently sealed cable entry solution has made it possible to significantly
increase cable withdrawal forces. In other words, it is no longer possible for the
connection to be inadvertently disconnected. The connection between the
photovoltaic module and the junction box is both innovative and totally unique. In
this case it is a tulip contact that, having proven its reliability in numerous
industrial applications, now ensures a robust, reliable and solder-free contact with
the flat-ribbon cable.
The 'Photovoltaic Junction Box' is based on a housing and mounting concept that
is designed to prevent errors occurring during installation and maintenance
procedures.
The 'Photovoltaic Junction Box' (1000 V DC - IEC / 600 V DC - UL) is designed

for operation in a temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C and complies with the
standard DIN V VDE V 0126-5:2008-05. The housing material is RoHS
compliant, free from halogens and corresponds to flammability class 5V (UL94).
Weidmüller offers a comprehensive range of products for a variety of applications
in the photovoltaic sector. As well as the 'Photovoltaic Junction Box' these include
the 'Stringbox with surge protection', 'Clinics Solar' to optimise the yield of
photovoltaic systems, a GPRS modem for communication as well as switches
and a diverse range of electronics modules for control and monitoring. It goes
without saying that the user can also turn to Weidmüller for fully equipped or
empty enclosures, terminal blocks, plug-in connectors, marking systems and
tools.
