Bentek receives over 1GW in new orders for 1500VDC UTS2 String Combiners

Bentek, announces orders in excess of 1GW for its 1500VDC line of UTS2 Integrated Disconnect String Combiners. Bentek has 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.

“The Bentek 1500VDC UTS2 family of string combiners continues to see great success in winning large utility-scale projects. Bentek proprietary design allows our customers to tailor the amperage of the combiner to each specific utility-scale project. Each Bentek combiner comes with an integrated proprietary Bentek 1500VDC load-break disconnect. Bentek’s design offers clients a cost effective tailored disconnect solution based on 25A increments 200A, 225A, 250A, 275A, 300A, 325A, 350A, 375A and 400A, which allows customers to size combiner capacity to their specific needs, significantly reducing system costs verses field amperage solutions with limited disconnect options. If the applications calls for a 300A combiner, clients no longer need to over pay for a 320A or 400A disconnect” stated John H. Buckley, Executive of Sales and VP of Marketing for Bentek.

John Buckley went on to say, “We have also seen great success with our Bentek 2 Circuit Parallel Cable Harness solutions. Our highly configurable cable harness solutions complement the 1500VDC UTS2 combiner and are available in 1500VDC ratings utilizing any commercially available 1500VDC branch connectors and in-line fuses. These unique Bentek 2 circuit parallel cable harness solutions reduce the amount of cable by over 50% while reducing costs by over 30% versus a typical cable harness. When Bentek 2 circuit parallel cable harness solutions are integrated with the Bentek 1500VDC UTS2 combiners in our ISO 9001:2008 certified facility, combined savings of up to 50% can be realized.”

“With over 10GW of installed products including more than 75,000 string combiners shipped to date, we continued to be extremely pleased with customer acceptance of the 1500VDC UTS2 product line. Bentek backlog continues to grow and we continue to see strong demand for our 1500VDC PV products” stated Mitch Schoch, President and CEO of Bentek.
