TEAL Electronics adds 1000VDC UL-1741 listed configurable combiner box product family22. June 2012 | By: TEAL Electronics
TEAL Electronics, a San Diego based subsidiary of SL Industries, Inc. (AMEX: SLI), announces the expansion of its TEALsolar Configurable Combiner Box for commercial and utility scale Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems to now include 1000VDC ratings.
The TEALsolar Configurable Combiner Box is available in configurations from 8 strings to 36 strings, with options for DC Disconnects and TVSS (transient voltage surge suppression) devices integrated into the unit. Fuses also come standard, and are available up to 30A per string depending on the number of strings and the overall current rating of the configuration. Enclosure options available are NEMA 3R, 4 or 4X enclosures in Painted Steel and Non-metallic (Fiberglass). The new 1000VDC rating under UL-1741 applies to the entire configurable product family, not just a few select models.
"The addition of the 1000VDC rating to our UL-1741 Listed Configurable Combiner Box product family is a result of our focus on the commercial and utility scale Solar Photovoltaic projects. What is unique about the TEAL Combiner Box is that the entire family of products is now rated for 1000VDC applications under our UL-1741 Listing. The product family includes combiner boxes from 8 strings to 36 strings with the typical options like integrated DC Disconnect and TVSS. Many of the larger solar plants planned in North America are designed with the 1000VDC standard. Our updated ratings enable TEAL to easily support the 1000VDC market with our configurable combiner box products lines to enable the system designer to customize the combiner product for each site plan," said Don Klein, President of TEAL Electronics.
