The companies states that thanks to a new connection design, the new product aids in cutting the cost of connection technology, while boosting the level of automation in the module manufacturing process and making modules easier to service and repower. The EPIC SOLAR MAP SET consists of a range of components made of weatherproof and impact-resistant plastic, which can be combined as required to create connections between modules. This then, say the two companies, renders conventional junction boxes redundant. These standardized components can be mounted and welded onto modules automatically, and customized solutions for different numbers of strings and varying cable lengths can easily be provided, even within the same production line.
