Commerce Preliminarily Finds Dumping of Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells, Whether or Not Assembled into Modules from the People's Republic of China

On May 17, 2012, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping duty (AD) investigation of imports of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules (solar cells) from the People’s Republic of China (China).

For the purpose of AD investigations, dumping occurs when a foreign company sells a product in the United States at less than fair value.

Commerce preliminarily determined that Chinese producers/exporters sold solar cells in the United States at dumping margins ranging from 31.14 percent to 249.96 percent.

Two pole SB® connectors set the standard for DC power distribution and battery connections

Two pole SB® connectors set the standard for DC power distribution and battery connections

Based off the design pioneered by Anderson in 1953, the two pole SB® connectors set the standard for DC power distribution and battery connections. SB connectors feature a rugged one-piece plastic housing using stainless steel springs to retain the contacts and create the "contact force" that provides extremely low resistance enabling greater electrical efficiency. The SB connectors are also genderless (flip one 180 degrees and they will mate to each other) reducing the customer's bill of materials and providing greater economies of scale when purchasing. The SB series of connectors range in size from SB50 to the SB350. Each family size offers color-coded, mechanically keyed housings designed to prevent both visually and physically cross-mating devices with different voltages. All the connectors are UL rated to 600 volts, so the keys and colors are just identifiers to prevent accidents. Contacts are traditionally Silver plated to minimize electrical resistance while offering supreme durability and reliability.
