Parallel connector - 4 modules
The parallel connectors are compatible with solar connectors and are used to connect 4 photovoltaic modules in parallel. In addition to the 4-way plug, the set also consists of 2x 2m extension cables so that the most distant photovoltaic module can also be connected.
Important Item Features
- Branch sockets for parallel connection of several solar modules
- Suitable for cables with a cross section of 4mm²-6mm²
- Compatible with solar connectors
- Easy click system
- Degree of protection IP67 when plugged in
What does parallel connection mean?
With parallel connection, the plus and minus lines are bundled at one output. With this circuit, the current increases and the voltage remains the same.
Practical example: You want to connect 3 pieces of 100W (Imp=5.56A Vmp=17.8V) solar modules to a charge controller with 20A and a max. input voltage of 30V/DC. To ensure that you do not exceed the permitted input voltage, you must wire the modules in parallel. So plus to plus and minus to minus.
If you now measure the string, you should be able to measure the following values under ideal lighting conditions: Imp=16.68A and Vmp=17.8V.
