Connect, protect and optimise: a portfolio of products for the PV sector

05 July 2011

Government initiatives to adopt and utilise renewable energy, such as the Feed-In Tariff and Code for Sustainable Homes has resulted in an increase in demand for photovoltaic installation. Whether you’re an MCS installer, OEM, system integrator, or farmer, you need efficient, robust, reliable and safe products that will withstand an extended operating life of over twenty years in harsh environments. Here is a summary of what Weidmüller can offer.

PV surge protection from Weidmuller

 Weidmüller's WM4 connectors are quick and safe to install and protect against dust, water and UV radiation. They also are compatible with common pin layouts.
 The new PV junction box features an innovative design and provides flexible assembly options. Pre-assembled PV cables also come equipped with standard plugs.
 The portable V-TEST can be used to carry out repeated functionality testing for Weidmüller’s surge protection components on PV systems in accordance with IEC 62305-3.
 Clinics Solar measures each individual PV panel's response during operation and the display of in-depth analysis via a PC, for maximum optimisation and yield.
 The Transclinic string monitoring system for photovoltaic plants allows precise measurement of string current, string voltage and temperature in real time.
 Plug and Play string boxes incorporate surge protection devices, fuses, disconnects and terminal wiring blocks - all prewired in a suitable enclosure for convenience.
 The Multi-Stripax PV Cutting and stripping tool for PV conductors and the CTF PV WM4 crimping tool for PV connectors are specifically fabricated and strengthened for PV applications.
 SoftClinic PV plant software connects directly to Transclinic string monitoring modules and collects data from any Modbus-enabled product such as inverters and weather-stations.
 LXXX PCB terminals allow you to use up to 50mm• conductors to transfer 150A/1000V directly and safely to your printed circuit board design.
 Our WSI 25/1 Fuse terminals allow quick disconnect of individual strings as well as providing over-current protection, making them ideal protection for PV applications.
 We offer a complete range of specialist Weidmuller surge protection devices for PV panels, data communications and power distribution, for both AC and DC.
 Our reliable and robust Industrial Ethernet serial and wireless products are ideally suited for remote PV monitoring and control systems.

DIN EN ISO/ IEC accreditations means that our laboratories are able to carry out certified tests for terminal blocks, connectors, and electronic equipment, so you can be safe in the knowledge that Weidmuller products can be used worldwide.
