Quick and simple termination
No special crimp tools need for field termination
Innovative Melni spiral termination technology with low resistance and long-term reliability
Used in new PV installations, field replacement and repairs, solar field retrofits
Eliminates the risk of cross mating connectors by different manufacturers
Certified to UL6703 and IEC62852 for 1500V DC
IP68 sealing protection

Developed to Reduce Failure
The innovative RadCrimp was developed to significantly improve crimp reliability in the field, while helping to reduce the amount of crimp related failures that are directly related to improper crimping, including eliminating the risk of cross mating connectors produced by different manufacturers.

Ideal for use in new solar PV installations, field retrofits and repairs in solar installations and any other field terminations requiring a robust sealed power connection. These connectors feature a simple and fast termination, eliminating the need for crimping and the use of specialized crimp tools, making them safe to install by field technicians. Melni's dual spiral termination technology allows for a very quick, easy and long-lasting connection with a pull strength unparalleled by its competitors.

These crimpless butt splice solar connectors are assembled by stripping the PV wire/cable, inserting them into the connector and tightening the connector end caps to the specified torque. Since the RadCrimp is a single connector, there is no risk of mating incompatible connectors from different manufacturers and violating UL 6703 requirements. The secure crimpless termination eliminates the risk of crimp related assembly failure in the field.

Robust solar connector
Certified to UL 6703 for 1500V DC specifications, this robust solar connector has a current rating of 50A for 8AWG wire and 65A for 6AWG wire. It offers simple and fast field termination and sealing without any special crimp tools. Low resistance wire termination and sealing can be completed in one action. The connector has an IP68 rating, making it suitable for all outdoor power applications, including solar, telecom, ESS, lightning, back-up power generation, etc.
