The Multi-Contact Solarline family of connectors delivers a flexible system solution for time-saving, dependable series cabling of solar modules. All module manufacturers supply their grid-tie modules with pre-assembled output cables, tested and ready for connection. This saves considerable time during an installation and greatly increases reliability over wire junction boxes. These cable couplers are fully touch-protected and designed for up to 1000 volts and 30 amps. They are also waterproof. For parallel connection of modules in 12- to 48-volt systems, Multi-Contact makes branch connectors for use with currents up to 30 amps. For the past few years, modules have come with Multi-Contact Solarline 1 connectors which have a soft rubber insulator. In 2007, PV manufacturers began switching to Multi-Contact Solarline 2 locking connectors to meet future electrical code requirements.The Multi-Contact plug-and-play connector system allows for the PV arrays to be pre-assembled and pre-wired in the shop or on site. We stock both styles of connectors for use with 10 AWG or 12 AWG USE-2 stranded wire. Proper crimping to the wire and insulator assembly requires special tools. We stock standard lengths of assembled cables and adapters to go between Solarline 1 and Solarline 2 connectors.
