40 S E P T E M B E R / O C TO B E R 2 0 1 7 F ronius is launching a new genera- tion of its Rapid Shutdown Box, which the company says will be the most convenient solution for NEC 2014 (690.12) and NEC 2017 compli- ance, while enhancing overall rooftop and firefighter safety. The new genera- tion includes two versions: the Fronius Rapid Shutdown Box Duo and Quattro. "Based on customer feedback, we implemented many improvements into this new generation of our Rapid Shutdown Box," says Michael Mendik, head of solution management at Fronius USA. Directly connected to the inverter through the same conduit as the DC homeruns and powered by the array, the Fronius solution minimizes the number of components and eliminates the need for an external power supply. The low- profile design and the multiple mount- ing options allow for installation under- neath the modules, ensuring a clean sys- tem look. In addition, the NEMA 4X rating ensures the box is built for severe outdoor conditions. MC4 connectors, spring-loaded terminals and generous wiring space make the wiring a breeze. The Rapid Shutdown Box also acts as a combiner box, removing the need for additional hardware. Booth 3943. WHAT TO SEE AT SOLAR POWER INTERNATIONAL 2017 SPI Preview
