SIDNEY, N.Y., Dec. 20, 2013 — Amphenol Industrial Global Operations has released the Hercules II, a junction box featuring a current rating of 10 A and a rated voltage of 1000 V of direct current. It is suitable for use on rigid silicon panels for photovoltaic (PV) applications.
The device measures 84.9 × 80.9 × 19.5 mm and offers a standardized exterior box geometry for automated assembly. Its rear alignment with tape and tabs maintains a low breakage rate during robotic assembly, and the box’s diodes can be paired with any PV panel’s specifications for optimal electrical protection.
Its sealed design offers improved heat dissipation for better temperature cycling, and the inside of the box can be sealed with potting compound to keep moisture out. The device offers either a spring clamp termination with leads that clamp to the inside of the box, or the ability to terminate leads with solder.
