Anderson Power Products (APP), a provider of interconnect products, says its
environmentally sealed Solar SPEC Pak connector is now certified ETL-EU to the European standard BS EN 50521 for connectors used in photovoltaic systems.

The Solar SPEC Pak was the first multi-pole connector to achieve UL approval under UL6703A for North American applications, according to the company. APP has now earned certification to European standard BS EN 50521 by passing all the harsh
mechanical, environmental and thermal tests.

Under BS EN 50521, the Solar SPEC Pak is certified to 20 A at 600 V and is IP67-sealed in the mated condition, or when used with sealing covers. The housing is IP20 touch-safe in the unmated condition per EN 60529 when used with Fingerproof Powerpole housings, the company adds.
