(EN) SOLAR PANEL AND GROUNDING CONNECTORS
(FR) PANNEAU SOLAIRE ET CONNECTEURS À MASSE CONNECTÉE
Abstract
(EN) A connector includes a body, a first slot formed in the body, the first slot dimensioned to receive an edge of a component, a second slot formed in the body, the second slot dimensioned to receive a conductor and a penetrating fastener for penetrating non-conductive coatings on a surface of the component and securing the component in the first slot.
(FR) Un connecteur comprend un corps, une première fente formée dans le corps, la première fente étant dimensionnée pour recevoir un bord d'un composant, une seconde fente formée dans le corps, la seconde fente étant dimensionnée pour recevoir un conducteur et une attache pénétrante pour pénétrer dans des revêtements non conducteurs sur une surface du composant et fixer le composant dans la première fente.
