WARNING: Before starting this section ensure the solar disconnect is in the off position.

 

 

 

 

 

1. Before beginning you must securely cover the solar panels with a solid, non-transparent material. We recommend that you use the solar panel shipping boxes.

2. For the SOLAR-AE6 kit, connect 2 strings of 3 solar panels together in series. This means 3 solar panels are to be in series by connecting the positive of one panel to the negative of an adjacent panel. Connect the remaining 3 solar panels together in series. (See Figure 5-A). 

3. For the SOLAR-AE4 kit, connect all the solar panels together in series. (See Figure 5-B).

4. Recall from the planning section that it may be necessary to use the provided 3’ or 10’ solar extension cables for this step.

 

 

NOTE:
Solar panels use polarized MC4 connectors, meaning the positive connector is different than the negative connector. Each connector has its polarity symbol (+ or -) embossed near the end of the connector. This polarity symbol is relative to the solar panel. To extend a cable, an opposite polarity connector must be used. For example, a negative connector must plug into a positive connector in order to extend it. It is advisable to attach or mark the positive cable in order to avoid confusion during the installation. (See Figure 5-C and Figure 5-D).
