Development and Release of “PV-03 Series" Photovoltaic CellModule Connector for Photovoltaic Power Generation Systems

We are pleased to announce the development and release of a new addition to our highly-popular series of photovoltaic cell module connectors, the "PV-03 Series".
As a provider of a green energy source that places minimal burden on the environment, the photovoltaic power generation system market has enjoyed increased attention and worldwide demand in recent years. Since photovoltaic power generation systems connect multiple photovoltaic cell modules by cable, relay connectors are used to join the cables.
In line with increasing market needs, we developed and released the PV-01/PV-02 Series and then added the industry smallest, "PV-04 Series". We have further expanded our repertoire of products with the development of the de facto global "PV-03 Series".
This product achieves a significant space-saving with a volume of approximately 60% less than our standard "PV-01 Series". In addition, our unique waterproof structure ensures sound performance and the terminals maintain stable contact performance due to the multipoint contact structure.
This product has passed the TÜV (DIN-EN) and UL safety standards, so it is suitable for the European, U.S. and Japanese markets.
