Solectria Renewables Introduces String Combiner with DC Disconnect

Lawrence, MA – July 12, 2011 – Solectria Renewables, LLC, the leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, introduced a String Combiner Box (STRCOM) with an optional DC disconnect today at Intersolar North America, California's largest solar conference and exhibition.

The DC disconnect allows installers, maintenance crews and first responders to turn off a solar system at the source. This option is compliant with UL 1741/IEEE 1547 and the 2011 National Electric Code (NEC).


The STRCOM's load-break rated switch (DC disconnect) is at the heart of the combiner and capable of breaking the circuit with sufficient speed to eliminate "arc" formation. The switch is tested to UL508 and listed by CSA. This string combiner box is available with 8 or 16 fused inputs, rated at NEMA 4X (fiberglass) or 24 fused inputs, rated at NEMA 4 (polyester powder coated steel).

"As soon as the 2011 NEC was released, Solectria Renewables worked to provide a solution to our customers that would be compliant," said James Worden, CEO of Solectria Renewables. He continued, "We understand the importance of safety when installing and servicing solar arrays. The DC disconnect option provides this added safety component."

Solectria Renewables is exhibiting at Intersolar North America in San Francisco, CA July 12-14, 2011 in booth 7534, where the STRCOM with DC disconnect will be debuted. Members of Solectria's executive team and other key team members will be in attendance and also present during the SMART GRID track and Innovation Exchange.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
