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
