4 Position Solar SPEC Pak® - up to 20 Amps

Solar SPEC Pak® is the first multi-pin connector to meet the photovoltaic industry requirements specified in UL 6703A.  It has power handling capabilities up to 1000 volts and features a locking latch that complies with NEC 2008 section 690.33 (C) requirements.  Designed for wire to wire applications, Solar SPEC Pak® is capable of handling up to 4 individual lines which reduces the number of traditional connectors needed in solar applications, minimizing the amount of space needed while lowering installation costs.
