Junction Box IP68 Yamaichi Electronics has developed a photovoltaic junction box for crystalline solar modules for the Y-Sol product family. The Eco-Si J-Box is designed for photovoltaic modules with an IP protection class of IP68. This permits the safe operation of the solar module even under the harshest of conditions. This protection class was achieved by the consistent use of the company’s "Hermetic Sealed" technology. With this technology, the junction box is not composed of individual "falling parts". Instead, the cables and electronic of the junction box are overmolded in a single, efficient work step. This overmolding process gives the junction box its shape and ensures absolute freedom from leaks. The Eco-Si is also designed for system voltages of 150V instead of the usual 1000 V. This permits higher voltages for future standards requirements as well (TÜV/UL) and application cases in photovoltaics. The box also features aload capacity of 12 A.
