DC Cabling

Amphenol Industrial (Sidney, NY) has announced an active trunk and drop cabling product, in conjunction with Ampt (Fort Collins, CO), a designer of active electronics for photovoltaic (PV) solar modules.

altComprised of one major cable conductor with a number of smaller cables connected to a PV panel, the new assembly allows for up to 40 percent more modules per string, as well as lower current carrying requirements. Ampt’s integrated ‘smart technology’ monitors power generation, ground faults, and fire protection on the assembly.

Integrated into Amphenol’s ModLink junction box, Ampt’s active electronics turn the module from a current source into a power source, monitoring power generation conducted down the trunk and drop cable assembly, while providing power monitoring and optimization for solar panels attached by a wire harness.

The ModLink junction box base has built-in industry standard connections that allow a direct connection between panels, using jumper cables available in various standard lengths. The ModLink base accepts a range of smart modules such as DC/DC converters/optimizers, micro-inverters, or monitoring modules. Optional wireless communication is also provided with each PV module.
