PV junction box.

MOLEX INC., LISLE, ILL. SolarSpec junction box and cable assemblies are designed for installation on the back of mono- and polycrystalline photovoltaic solar modules. They provide the interface between the conductor ribbons on the panel and the dc input/output cables. Spring terminals connect the base directly to the PV ribbon conductors, without need for retention clamps or clips. Optional patented Solder Charge Technology facilitates high-speed assembly and eliminates the need for hand-soldering of the ribbon, avoiding opportunities for process variation. Optional double-sided tape removes the need for curing time on silicone when attaching the connector base to a module. The junction box assembly is supplied with two removable dc cables available dual-qualified TUV and UL, or single-qualified TUV. The junction box contains bypass diodes to protect the PV panel from reverse current during hours of darkness, shade, or when covered by leaves or other debris.
