Our Solar Portfolio Highlights

Our relentless dedication to materials science means our solar products are designed to last. They are built to withstand submersion leakage tests, temperature variations, UV exposure, moisture and mechanical conditions. Our DC connectors are built for flame retardancy, are robust and resist animal intrusion. They are listed to UL, cUL and IEC standards while our AC solutions comply with the IEEE, ANSI, IEC, GB applicable standards.

Customizable Trunk Solution

A next-generation EBOS which is flexible, reliable and customizable to the needs of solar farms. 

 

Our Customizable Trunk Solution CTS can be implemented regardless of size, location and mounting structure and it is compatible with East-West or North-South trunk cable orientation.

 

Every CTS project is managed by our teams of design engineers and project management experts who provide advice at every stage of the process. From pre-installation farm design and optimization recommendations, to customized in-field training and post-operational support. 

 

The CTS components deliver high levels of protection and performance that meet stringent testing and certification standards.
