Pair of male/female solar connectors for terminating solar-specific cable.

Solar connectors are the industry-standard method for providing a waterproof connection to solar panels and between solar cables. They suit cable of 2.5, 4.0 & 6.0mm² cross-section and can be terminated either by crimping or soldering. A cable gland at the end of each connector ensures a waterproof seal when tightened around the cable insulation. These are compatible with MC4 connectors and the locking tabs on the sides of the connector body are open, for easy dis-assembly using our solar connector spanners (see below)

Further information

The 'gender' of each connector is determined by looking at the terminal that is housed within it. The 'male' connector looks like a socket but houses the male terminal and the 'female' connector looks like a plug but houses the female terminal.

Once crimped, the terminals need to be pushed firmly into the connector to lock them into place (indicated by an audible 'click') before assembling and tightening the cable gland.

Never connect or disconnect solar connectors whilst they are under electrical load as this can cause arcing which can damage the contacts.
