Stäubli has added the MC4-Evo crimp-free cable coupler to its MC4 product portfolio.

The MC4-Evo ready is an easy-to-use and quickly-to-assemble PV connector for solar installations up to 1500 V DC. The assembly of this new connector is crimp-free based on the snap-in-technology.

This feature eases and speeds up assembly and installation time while still offering safe and reliable operation for in-string and homerun applications.

The new MC4-Evo ready is mateable with the existing connectors of the Original MC4 product portfolio. Crimp-free connectors do not require special tools as the contact is made by an automatically closing spring clamp. The connectors come pre-assembled and are ready to use. 

Users can simply insert the stripped PV cable, listen to the click, screw on the cap nut and it is ready to connect.

The connector is suited for cable cross sections of 4 mm² and 6 mm². Ambient temperature range is -40 °C to +85 °C (IEC). Upper limit temperature is 115 °C (IEC).

The connector is TÜV Rheinland certified according to IEC 62852:2014+Amd. 1:2020.
