Y-Sol4 F.A.T. with New Versions

Munich – Yamaichi Electronics presents new versions of the field assembly F.A.T. connector in the Y-Sol4 series.

Cost pressure in the photovoltaic industry is increasing. That’s why Yamaichi Electronics has developed another connector version for 4 to 6mm² cable cross-sections. They extend the successful Y-Sol4 F.A.T. product line. The Y-Sol4 F.A.T. has a spring clamping mechanism for simple clamping of stripped cable in the field. This permits quick, effective assembly without crimping.

The new versions of the Y-Sol4 F.A.T. are specifically suited for thin wire outer diameters of 4.5mm to 6.1mm. Thin wires are popular in photovoltaic installations today because they are more cost-effective due to material savings. The existing versions continue to cover the range of larger cable diameters from 6.1mm to 7.6mm.

Versions are now also available in the product line for cable cross-sections from 1.5mm² to 3.5mm². They are used for thin film installation, for example.

All the new versions are based on the familiar concept of tool-free field assembly. This permits the quick, reliable and cost-effective installation in the field without additional special tools.

All the familiar technical data still apply, including the IP68 protection class, the 1000V TÜV rating and a current rating of up to 47A, guaranteeing a high-quality, reliable product.
