Amphenol have introduced the new HelioLug, the first grounding lug that meets specific requirements of the solar industry.
A grounding lug is a component for solar modules and solar racking systems, allowing easy termination to the grounding wire.
The HelioLug has a deliberately versatile design and can be used for commercial or utility scale installations, as well as residential installations.
As one of the largest manufacturers of interconnect products in the world, Amphenol recently made a big impact on the the electronics industry by introducing their Helios H4 connector.
The Helios H4 is used mainly to connect solar panels and inverters. It is Ro-HS compliant and uses a simple locking tool for easy unmating in the field.
It is also worth noting that it is a dual-rated connector that meets NEC 2008 without the need for extra locking collars and locking sleeves. This cost-effective interconnect uses Amphenol’s patented RADSOK technology.
The primary features of the Helios H4 include;
-Highest current rating in the industry
-Quick and easy secure snap lock mating
-Low contact resistance which means low power loss
The Helios H4 has recently been described as the only connector which consistently displays a very low contact resistance, achieving a rating of 1.7 for the field-assembled unit and 1.9 for the factory-assembled connector from Photon, the Solar Power magazine.
