First Multi-Pin Connector to Meet the Photovoltaic Industry Requirements in UL 6703A

Anderson Power Products® (APP), a leader in high power interconnect solutions, is proud to announce that Solar SPEC Pak® is the first multi-pin connector to meet the photovoltaic industry requirements specified in UL 6703A, passing the same harsh environmental tests used to qualify solar panels.

Solar SPEC Pak® has power handling capabilities up to 1000 volts and features a locking latch that complies with NEC 2008 section 690.33(C) requirements. Designed for wire to wire applications, Solar SPEC Pak® is capable of handling up to 4 individual lines which reduces the number of traditional connectors needed in solar applications, minimizing the amount of space needed while lowering installation costs.

The Solar SPEC Pak®, IP68 rated shell has a flammability rating of UL 94 V-0 and a weatherability rating of F1 per UL 746C. The housing is touch-safe per UL 1977 when used with Finger proof Powerpole® housing and has a temperature range of -40° to 105°C (-40° to 221°F).
