Bentek Solar Announces Shipments of Over 60MW of Industry Leading Circuit Breaker Re-Combiners

The company has shipped over 60MW of Circuit Breaker Re-combiners. The combiners use industry-leading circuit breaker technology, eliminating the need for standard fuses.

SAN JOSE, CA ― December 2010 ― Bentek Solar, a leader in the design and manufacture of optimized Configure-To-Order solar combiners, re-combiners and solar safety systems, announces that it has shipped over 60MW of Circuit Breaker Re-combiners. The combiners use industry-leading circuit breaker technology, eliminating the need for standard fuses.


"There are no fuses with these 100 percent circuit breaker re-combiners that provide maximum performance and safety with UL 489 breakers. The circuit breaker serves as a disconnect that complies with NEC requirements while providing circuit protection like that from a fuse. The price of circuit breakers is comparable to the cost of a fuse plus individual disconnect, while circuit breakers require much less maintenance since there are no fuses to replace," said John H. Buckley, leading sales and marketing at Bentek Solar.

Bentek Solar re-combiners provide the final interface to the inverter on large commercial or utility PV systems, and feature a flexible design for customization and ease of installation, as well as an enhanced level of user safety.
