Amphenol Industrial, a provider of interconnect systems, has developed an active trunk-and-drop cabling system in conjunction with Ampt, a designer of active electronics for photovoltaic solar modules.

According to the companies, the new cabling solution reduces the cost of commercial- and utility-scale PV systems. Comprising one major cable conductor with a number of smaller cables connected to a PV panel, the new assembly allows for up to 40% more modules per string as well as lower current carrying requirements, Ampt and Amphenol Industrial add.

When paired with Amphenol's ModLink junction box, the new active trunk-and-drop cabling system also maximizes the output of each module, recovers degradation losses, removes the risk of module obsolescence, improves system run time and lowers energy costs, according to the companies.
