New smart junction box from TE Connectivity enables PCB integration

TE ConnectivityTE Connectivity just introduced a new smart junction box that enables printed circuit boards (PCBs) to be integrated into solar panel solutions.

The SOLARLOK Medium junction box is designed to terminate customer-designed PCBs that can monitor its functionality and allows the junction box to be shut down remotely when required. Special clips allow the PCB to be quickly and reliably connected to the solar panel foils.

The SOLARLOK Medium junction box is supplied with foil-rails and clips, has an operating temperature range of minus 40 degrees Celsius to 90 degrees Celsius, and is rated for 1000 or 1500V. The junction box is rated up to IP67 and is approved by TUV and UL.

 

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
