Use Enphase Q-12-17-240 Q-Cable to interconnect IQ microinverters with a 6.5ft spacing. This is the standard spacing for 60-cell solar modules mounted in landscape orientation (long axis horizontal).
Note: match the number of cables with the number of IQ microinverters in your system. For example, a 7-cable is equivalent to one continuous cable with 7 connectors. For a 14-microinverter installation, select 14 cables; the cable can be cut on-site to match your setup.
The Q-Cable offers double insulation for the #12AWG wires that link together all the microinverters in one 240VAC branch circuit. The unused end of the branch is sealed with a Q-TERM end cap. The homerun end of the branch connects to a transition junction box or an Enphase Q Aggregator. If there are any unused connectors to cover a gap between panels or for future expansion, a Q-SEAL cap must be used.
The cable features a Q-Connector with the specified spacing (see above) that plugs directly to the IQ7 microinverter creating a lasting and safe weatherproof connection. The Enpahse IQ smart system is UL certified.
For 240V system the Q-cable comes in 3 different sizes:
Q-12-10-240 Q-Cable 1.3m (4.2ft) long for 60-cell, 72-cell, and 96-cell modules oriented in portrait
Q-12-17-240 Q-Cable 2.0m (6.5ft) long for 60-cell modules oriented in landscape
Q-12-20-200 Q-Cable 2.3m (7.5ft)long for 72-cell modules oriented in landscape
Other Enphase IQ accessories are:
Enphase Q Aggregator
The Enphase Q Aggregator is a sophisticated weathertight connection box to terminate and combine branch circuits on the roof. It helps reduce the amount of material and cable used while it also improves installation reliability.
– Accommodates up to 3 branch circuits
– One aggregator is compatible with solar arrays up to 13.7 kW
– Reduces installation time and material costs
Enphase Q Field Wireables
The Enphase Q Field Wireables are male and female connectors compatible with the Enphase Q Cable. They use a crimp toll similar to the tool used with MC4 connectors. They are UL listed for outdoor use and help eliminate wire waste.
