Amphenol Industrial Global Operations, a provider of interconnect systems, says its Helios H4 PV connector has been UL certified to 1,000 V. Designed for applications that use solar inverters, combiner boxes and installers, the H4 connector helps feed power from a solar panel into an inverter or combiner box.

According to the company, this UL rating allows Amphenol's connectors to be used in existing systems as well as in new ones that require more voltage without having to increase cable size.

The increase in voltage rating allows higher voltage systems to be created with a lower percentage of voltage drop, and decreases the use of copper and the dollar-per-watt cost through electrical efficiency, the company adds.
