Plug-in connector with "PUSH IN" connection: Plug in - Turn - Power on!

Weidmüller's portfolio of products offers a wide range of innovative and reliable components for installing photovoltaic systems. With the "PV-Stick", Weidmüller offers an innovative plug-in connector with the "PUSH IN" connection system for photovoltaic systems.

The innovative "PUSH IN" connection system saves approx. 50% of the time required for cabling solar systems - without affecting quality. The plug-in connectors are connected securely and reliably in just a few steps: simply insert the stripped conductor in the plug-in connector, turn the screw cap and you're done.

A clearly audible click indicates a perfect, secure connection. A clearly visible marking on the screw cap acts as an accurate indicator for determining the stripping length. Wire cross-sections of 4 mm² or 6 mm² can be attached to the "PV-Stick" in a matter of seconds, without the need for wire-end ferrules, crimp contacts or crimping tools.

The rating data is as follows: 30 A and 1000 VDC (IEC). The innovative "PV-Stick" with "PUSH IN" connection system and "Type 4" connector face dispenses with the need for crimp contacts and crimping tools, thus avoiding contact errors.

The ergonomic and functional design of the PV plug-in connector enables trouble-free, simple and quick assembly, even under difficult conditions, such as when working at large heights.

"PV-Stick" complies with the standard DIN EN 50521 and is TÜV-approved (German Technical Inspectorate).
