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.

DC Connections

Our SOLARLOK photovoltaic connectors are designed for easy, quick and reliable DC connections. With a precision-engineered design, they help achieve the lowest contact resistance to reduce power losses.

Customizable Trunk Solutions

Reduce overall labor, operational and maintenance costs with our Customizable Trunk Solution. Designed to eliminate combiner boxes and provide plug-and-play flexibility, whether installed underground or above.

Connection & Mounting Solutions

Our range of lugs and sleeves, dual rated or bimetallic, accommodate aluminum and copper conductors with no torque maintenance required.

Switchgear & Transformer Solutions

Our Raychem separable connectors, and our heat shrink and cold shrink terminations are easy to install, compact and adaptable to most cable types to reduce your installation time and costs.

Onshore Grid Connections

To connect your grid, choose from our complete range of industry-leading Raychem heat and cold shrink joints for 1-core to 3-core cables, and junction boxes to separately branch-off joints or cable junctions.

Grounding Solutions

Our ground rods and AMP or SIMEL connectors – exothermic welded, compression and bolted – are resistant to corrosion and help eliminate grounding failures to ensure your solar farm safety and operation.
