Bentek's Residential Rapid Shutdown System Gaining Customer Acceptance

SAN JOSE, CA – Bentek, a manufacturer of a broad range of OEM power distribution products for the residential, commercial and utility-scale solar PV marketplaces, continues to see the Bentek Residential Rapid Shutdown System (RSS) gaining customer acceptence where NEC 2014 690.12 is being enforced.

Todd Druskat of E2 Solar Inc. commented, “We chose Bentek’s RSS for its simplicity in design and cost effectiveness. The product is labeled as a Rapid Shutdown Solution, with two and three string options. Using simple language like this makes it easier for your average solar company to spec and order. The product is very well built and the low profile of the RSM allows it to fit underneath panels, where some competitors’ products sit too high to do that. The whips that extend out of the RSM make connections with the strings very easy.”

John H. Buckley, Executive of Sales and Marketing, at Bentek commented, “As more states continue to adopt and enforce the NEC 2014 Rapid Shutdown code requirement, Bentek continues to see a fast adoption rate of the Bentek RSS. We are pleased to see companies like E2 Solar Inc. appreciate the simplicity and cost effectiveness of the RSS design. The RSS is a universal Rapid Shutdown product that has been tested and approved by some of the largest residentail string inverter manufacturers and installers in the world.”

The Bentek RSS is a complete cost-effective and easy-to-install stand-alone solution. It includes two components: The Rapid Shutdown Controller (RSC) installed at the service entrance and the Rapid Shutdown Module (RSM) installed within 10 feet of the PV array.
