AMtec Solar Products Announces UL1741 Listed 1500VDC Configurable Disconnecting Combiner Boxes
AMtec Solar Products, a unit of AMtec Industries announced recently the official launch of its new Prominence Series configurable disconnecting combiner boxes, featuring disconnect ratings of up to 400 Amps at 1500 VDC. The boxes are ETL Listed to UL1741 at 1500VDC and CAN/CSA C22.2 listed at 1500VDC.
The new high power capacity combiner boxes are fully customizable with 275A, 325A, or 400A disconnects, and up to 36 strings. Enclosures are available in NEMA 4 steel, NEMA 4X fiberglass or stainless, or 3R. AMtec offers a wide range of additional configuration options including single or dual-hole output lugs, pre-configured pigtails, voltage monitoring, surge protection, string-level current monitoring, cable connectors, fuse ratings, and more.
Tom Willis, AMtec’s Director of Sales, stated “These heavy-duty, high-capacity components allow us to continue to offer improved cost savings for our customers by reducing the number of overall components needed. While AMtec is already well-known for its superior build quality, the ETL Listing to UL1741 provides a high level of assurance to our solar Balance of System customers that these units meet the high standards of manufacturing quality that is characteristic of UL1741.”
Tom went on to say, “The next generation of PV projects are already demonstrating that 1500 VDC is really the new sweet spot. This shift brings down LCOE and balance-of-system costs. And thanks to AMtec’s investment in computer-driven cutting and drilling, AMtec is able to deliver its disconnecting combiner boxes faster, at ultra-competitive prices — even at very small order quantities.”
