Bentek Introduces New 1500VDC Utility-Scale (UTS) Combiner And Bentek Disconnect That Will Be Displayed At SPI Las Vegas

Bentek, with over 30 years of design and manufacturing experience in a broad range of both AC and DC OEM power distribution products for the residential, commercial and utility-scale solar PV marketplaces, announces it will display several new Balance of System products in booth #1223 at the Solar Power International exhibition and conference in Las Vegas September 12th through the 15th.

1500VDC Utility-Scale (UTS) Combiner Bentek will introduce a new family of utility-scale (UTS) 1500VDC products that meet current NEC safety requirements.  “Our customers continue to be faced with a market that demands continued price per watt reductions while maintaining compliance with all electrical code and product safety standards. Project owners and operators want to be assured that the products they are purchasing are 100% compatible with each together and with all other system components. Our new 1500VDC products achieve all these objectives”, said John H. Buckley, Executive Sales and VP of Marketing.

Bentek 1500VDC UTS2 String Combiners

Bentek introduces its 2nd generation 1500VDC integrated disconnect string combiner. A custom range of load-break rated disconnect switches developed by Bentek for the 1500VDC UTS2 line vastly increases DC collection system design flexibility for project designers and EPCs.

The new Bentek disconnects integrated in the 1500VDC UTS2 combiners are provided in standard commercially available ampacities of 200A, 250A, 320A and 400A. Bentek has expanded on this range to include ampacity ratings of 225A, 275A, 300A, 325A, 350A and 375A.

The new Bentek 1500VDC UTS2 string combiners with expanded ampacity ratings are offered in one standard enclosure size with a variety of options including surge protection, pre-terminated cable whips, conduit fittings and mounting kits.

“The more granular set of ratings will provide up-front value engineering opportunities during the design phase by not restricting customers to procuring “standard” ampacity units. This has the potential to reduce combiner costs by 10 to 15 percent with hundreds of thousands of dollars in project savings as a result” stated John H. Buckley, Executive Sales and VP of Marketing.
