For large utility-scale projects, our customers are quickly moving from 1,000 Vdc to 1,500 Vdc. Bentek has already shipped more than 200 MW of complete UL 1741–listed 1,500 Vdc solutions.

Our utility-scale ground-mount customers are moving to 1,500 Vdc cable harnesses that support both thin-film and crystalline modules. While the cable harness configurations vary depending on the layout of the PV project, we see more PV projects moving to a two-circuit parallel harness. This type of cable harness allows the PV designer to parallel two circuits together, which minimizes the customer’s combiner costs by halving the number of input circuits while doubling the amperage of the fuses inside the string combiners. This cable harness and combiner configuration provides customers with a cost-effective solution that offers high reliability.
