Burgaw, N.C.-based Wieland has introduced new PST 40i1 pluggable connectors, which are designed to provide a 40 AMP DC current capability to satisfy demanding high-load solar applications. Both PST 40i1 connector versions – pre-assembled as over-molded, cut-to-length cable assemblies, or field-wired on-site – carry their rated current throughout the entire -40Â°C to + 85Â°C temperature range.
According to Wieland, the PST 40i1 pre-assembled, over-molded cable assemblies, which are delivered tested and ready to install, eliminate time-consuming on-site operations, reduce errors and speed up installation.
In addition, the IP 68 ingress protection rating and robust design ensure operation in harsh conditions, while the silver-plated, machined contacts are field-proven in solar installations, machine tool construction, crane technology and shipbuilding.
PST 40i1 connectors offer quick assembly, easy handling, mate compatibility with industry standard types, resistance to UV and high conductivity. Specifications include rated voltage, 1000V, wire size 16 – 8 AWG (1.5 mmÂ² – 10 mmÂ²), TUV certified, and UL in progress.
