Connectors for DC-application in photovoltaic systems – Safety requirements and tests
|Publication Date:||1 March 2020|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
This International Standard applies to connectors for use in the d.c. circuits of photovoltaic systems according to class II of IEC 61140:2001 with rated voltages up to 1 500 V d.c. and rated currents up to 125 A per contact.
This standard applies to connectors without breaking capacity but which might be engaged and disengaged under voltage.
This standard also applies to connectors which are intended to be built-in or integrated in enclosures of devices for photovoltaic systems. This standard may be used as a guide for connectors in photovoltaic systems of classes 0 and III according to IEC 61140:2001 as well as for protection for Class II equipment intended for use at less than 50 V d.c. This document does not apply to connectors for data collection, tracker controls or similar, but it may be used as a guide for those connectors.
