SOFAMEL, COFME’s specialist in safety and connection, guarantees optimal earthing in photovoltaic installations with SCF-GC clamps.
The SCF-GCE aluminum and stainless steel clamps have a wide field of application, as they are valid for the most widely used solar structures. They provide a correct connection of the anodized aluminum frame of the solar panel to the earthing system. They have great durability due to their resistance to galvanic and environmental corrosion, and facilitate installation, as they fit perfectly to the panel frame.
They are versatile, allowing two types of connection: by means of M8 screw to the earthing hole of the solar panel or by fixing to the rail of the structure, as an option to fasten the earthing cable or as a connection to the earthing system.
A good connection to the earthing system protects people and electronic devices against leakage currents. The protective earthing conductor should be connected to the panel frame by means of an auxiliary clamp, in order to be able to remove a faulty or under maintenance module without interrupting the earthing connection of the rest of the installation.
