Shoals issued patent for PV wire harness with in-line fuses


This patent affords Shoals the exclusive rights to the marketing and sale of their innovative harness solution to solar installations all over the world.

Specifically, the wire harness represented by this patent connects multiple strings of solar modules to a single combiner box in the field; included in the harness are in-line fuses with optional blocking diodes, providing each string of PV modules its own fuse. Thus, in the event of a blown fuse, the damage is contained to a singular string of modules, rather than a more widespread event. The quality pre-fabrication and modular design of Shoals’ patented harness creates faster installation, simpler trouble shooting, and far easier repairs. The sum of which provides EPC installers lower labor and material costs and far better operations and maintenance.
