Solar Grounding Solutions Overview

SOLARLOK Grounding Solutions photovoltaic
TE Connectivity (TE) has expanded its line of SOLARLOK photovoltaic (PV) interconnect products with our grounding products. The electrical and mechanical properties of these products will meet the tough requirements for PV module grounding applications as established by UL.

The SOLARLOK grounding clip provides quick and convenient grounding for solar modules and related products. These grounding clips have four points of electrical contact and are for use with 12-10 AWG uninsulated copper wire. Our grounding clips can be re-used up to 5 times. The ground terminal supplements the existing TE SOLARLOK product portfolio and offers the electrician yet another valuable component for simple and fast wiring of a PV-system.

The ground bolts are designed for solar module grounding applications using solid copper uninsulated 6 AWG to 12 AWG wire. The grounding assembly consists of a wire bolt (wire slot on one end and threaded post on the other), wire binding hex nut, and mounting hex washer nut. The grounding assembly is used with metal-framed photovoltaic (solar) panels and related products that require grounding for safety reasons.
