The Enphase IQ Microinverter System makes complex installations simple. Field Wireable Q Connectors (Q-CONN-10F and Q-CONN-10M) and raw Q Cable (Q-12-RAW-300) allow a wide-range of installation options that are not available in DC systems or other microinverter systems. You can run raw Q Cable through conduits, raceways, or chases between sub-arrays to help to minimize the amount of conduit, conduit bending, wire-pulls, and wiring connections that are required on a project.
You must terminate the raw Q Cable in one of the following manners:
• Into a junction box using a ½- service entrance (SE) strain reliefs or UF cable glands
• With a Field Wireable Q Connector (male or female)
Splicing Enphase Q Cable and Raw Q Cable with Junction Boxes: For complex installations that include multiple arrays, it is possible to use raw Q Cable (Q-12-RAW-300) to service the arrays and branch circuits that originate directly at the primary roof mounted junction box. In the case that Field Wireable Q Connectors are not readily available, you can use a small junction box to splice two sections of Q Cable together or to splice Q Cable to raw Q Cable.
To terminate the raw Enphase Q Cable, you must do so in one of the following manners: • Into a junction box using a ½- service entrance (SE) strain reliefs or UF cable glands • With a Field Wireable Q Connector (male or female)
