Eaton Offers Versatility And Long Service Life In PV Systems With New High Amperage Solar Combiner Boxes

Syracuse, N.Y. — Oct. 21, 2014 — Power management company Eaton recently introduced a series of third-party certified high-amperage solar combiner boxes from its Crouse-Hinds business. An extension to its broad balance of system (BOS) offerings, the latest combiner boxes improve photovoltaic (PV) systems and provide significant labor and material savings. 

“These high-amperage solar combiner boxes are essential components in innovative, cost-saving T-junction cable-designed PV systems," said Patrick Kane, product line manager, Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds Division. 

Engineered to meet the continually evolving technologies of grid-connected PV solar systems, the high-amperage combiner boxes are designed to handle the increased amperage of T-junction cable system inputs. With the ability to dissipate the additional heat that these types of systems often experience, the products are designed to provide a long, dependable service life.

Additionally, the T-junction cable harnesses reduce one positive and one negative string per row to one positive and one negative string for every two rows of panels. This contributes to decreasing material and labor costs by as much as 20 percent.
