Bentek Solar's Multiple Disconnect Safety System (MDSS) Reduces Disconnect Costs Up to 30 Percent

The MDSS provides up to 30 percent savings in disconnect costs while providing safety and protection of key photovoltaic investments.

SAN JOSE, CA ― November 2010 ― Bentek Solar, a leader in the design and manufacturing of optimized Configure-To-Order solar combiners, re-combiners and solar safety systems, introduces its leading-edge Multiple Disconnect Safety System (MDSS). The MDSS provides up to 30 percent savings in disconnect costs while providing safety and protection of key photovoltaic investments.


MDSS provides customers with numerous benefits including reduced space requirements, material costs and labor costs, as well as complete isolation of inverter fuses.

MDSS product features include:
From three to eight integrated disconnects per MDSS
600 or 1000 VDC disconnects
Multiple 100, 200 and 400A disconnects in one MDSS
Enclosure is NEMA-3R + dust tight, with removable bottom panels for wiring
Handles mounted internally or externally

"For larger installations, it is more economical to install an MDSS with up to eight integrated disconnects vs. eight individual disconnects The MDSS can provide significant benefits in labor, materials and time, resulting in up to 30 percent savings in total disconnect costs," said Mitch Schoch, President and CEO of Bentek Solar.

"Our Multiple Disconnect Safety Systems are designed for large PV solar systems (250KW or greater) and are intended for installation next to the inverter. The MDSS provides customers with multiple UL 600VDC or IEC 1000VDC load-break disconnects combined in one safe, compact, easy-to-install enclosure," said Jim Peplinski, Chief Technology Officer of Bentek Solar.

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
