BizLink Announces Its Latest PV Connector “S418 R-Type”
Designed with high durability and cost saving for harsh weather conditions and tough operating environments
BizLink, a global leader in interconnect solutions, is proud to announce the availability of its new PV connector “S418 R-Type”. The S418 R-Type connector features a rated voltage of DC 1500 V and supports wider cable outer diameters. With a robust snap-in locking design, the connector can prevent disconnecting issues under load. In addition, BizLink chooses Asahi and BASF plastic resin for the connector body to ensure the long-term operation of the PV connector.
The S418 R-Type connector meets the PV connector standards of IEC 62852 and UL 6703. It supports a cable range from 2.5 sqmm to 10 sqmm in accordance with IEC 62930 and EN 50618. It also conforms to the UL 4703 standard to support a cable range from 14 AWG to 8 AWG. Furthermore, the S418 R-Type connector with IP65 and IP68 (max. depth of 1 meter up to 24 hours) meets the latest IEC 62852 standard. It is specially developed to withstand harsh weather conditions and tough operating environments such as rainstorms, floods, and high-salt environments. In order to enhance easy installation and convenience, the connector is designed with pre-assembled housings and a gasket. The users can easily and intuitively assemble crimped terminals to the housing.
With the leading specifications in the solar market, the connector is the best choice for floating solar plant systems or other harsh-environment connectivity requirements. By applying the S418 R-Type connector in solar systems, customers can receive practical benefits from preventing mismatch, saving labor time and costs, reducing the risk of poor workmanship, and lowering the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for their solar systems.
