APP Solar SPEC Pak is first multi-pin connector to meet requirements specified in UL 6703A

Solar SPEC Pak® has power handling capabilities up to 1000 volts and features a locking latch that complies with NEC 2008 section 690.33(C) requirements. Anderson Power Products® (APP), a leader in high power interconnect solutions, is proud to announce that Solar SPEC Pak® is the first multi-pin connector to meet the photovoltaic industry requirements specified in UL 6703A, passing the same harsh environmental tests used to qualify solar panels.

Solar SPEC Pak® has power handling capabilities up to 1000 volts and features a locking latch that complies with NEC 2008 section 690.33(C) requirements. Designed for wire to wire applications, Solar SPEC Pak® is capable of handling up to 4 individual lines which reduces the number of traditional connectors needed in solar applications, minimizing the amount of space needed while lowering installation costs.

The Solar SPEC Pak®, IP68 rated shell has a flammability rating of UL 94 V-0 and a weatherability rating of F1 per UL 746C. The housing is touch-safe per UL 1977 when used with Fingerproof Powerpole® housing and has a temperature range of -40° to 105°C (-40° to 221°F).

The core Powerpole® technology within the Solar SPEC Pak® shell is proven, reliable and cost effective. The Solar SPEC Pak® will hold up to 4 Powerpole® power contacts, 16 signal contacts or a combination of both. Individually, the power contacts are rated to 40 amps and are capable of handling wire sizes of 20 to 10 AWG (0.50 to 4 mm²).

Ground contacts are First Mate/Last Break in accordance with NEC 2008 and can occupy any of the connectors 4 positions. Contact housings, both finger proof and standard, are available in a wide array of colors offering color-coding options and design flexibility. The combination of housings, power, ground and signal, that can be installed in a user determined configuration, provide thousands of design options for the most demanding applications.
