Straight Connector

ELMEX PHOTOVOLTAIC STRAIGHT CONNECTOR 

'elmex has developed solar straight connector with plug & Socket design suitable for 2.5, 4, & 6 sq.mm, size cables and are constructed using flame retardant engineering thermoplastic suitable for photovoltaic application and exposure to UV rays. While small solar panels, commonly used for battery charging, may not require special connectors, larger terrestrial arrays for power generation involve higher currents and voltages and place special demands on both cables and connectors for safe operation. The EMPV4 connectors incorporate a flexible watertight seal and are supplied as ‘male (plug)’ and ‘female (socket)’ types to minimize the chance of wrong connections. For proper seal, they require usage with the correct diameter cable, normally double-insulated (insulation plus black/red sheath) and UV protection (as UV rays tend to damage the connection).
