ENPHASE ET-TERM-1 Branch Terminator for M215, Quantity 1
One terminator needed per branch circuit ET-TERM-1 (quantity 1)
Terminate the far end of the Engage Cable as follows.a. Remove 60mm (2.5 inches) of the cable sheath from the conductors.b. Slide the hex nut onto the Engage Cable.c. Insert the Engage Cable all the way into the wire organizer (up to the stop).d. Bend the individual wires back into the recesses in the wire organizer so that they angle back toward the cable.e. Cut the individual wires so that no excess extends outside of the wire organizer. The portions that angle back will need to extend enough to fit neatly into the 0.5 cm (0.2 in) recesses in the wire organizer and flush with the edge of the cap.f. Screw the hex nut onto the cap. Never unscrew the hex nut as this can twist and damage the cable.g. Hold the cap with an Enphase disconnect tool, or insert a #2 Phillips screwdriver.h. Use a 24mm (7/8 inch) wrench to tighten the hex nut until the latching mechanism is screwed all the way to the base.i. Use a tie wrap or cable clip to attach the cable to the PV racking, so that the Engage Cable and terminator do not touch the roof.j. Ensure that all cabling is located underneath the PV module.
The Enphase Energy Microinverter System improves energy harvest, increases reliability, and dramatically simplifies design, installation and management of solar power systems.
The Enphase System includes the microinverter, the Envoy Communications GatewayTM, and Enlighten®, Enphase’s monitoring and analysis software.
The Enphase Microinverter
Enphase has pioneered a new approach to managing solar power that makes solar systems smarter and more efficient.
Traditionally, solar panels are connected together in series circuits fed into a single, central inverter device. This means that one inverter controls tens, hundreds or even thousands of solar panels as if they are one unit operating at the same power level. This approach reduces the overall system efficiency and limits the available information about individual panel health.
Enphase replaces these large central inverters with small micro-electronics that attach to each solar panel. These devices, known as microinverters, allow each panel to operate independently, leading to significant improvements in energy production and adding a new layer of intelligence throughout the system.
The Enphase SystemEach Microinverter integrates with advanced networking technology and web-based software to enable new levels of intelligence and connectivity in the solar array.
Specifically, the Enphase Microinverter System consists of the following components:The Microinverter that connects to each solar module and converts DC power to grid-compliant AC powerThe Envoy Communications Gateway that networks with each microinverter and transmits performance information to the internetThe Enlighten software where Enphase customers can monitor and manage their solar power systems 24 hours a day
