Hoymiles is set to launch a new HMS Cable System installation solution for multi-microinverter and single-microinverter PV systems.

Drawing inspiration from modular concepts such as LEGO bricks, Hoymiles engineers are looking to set a new industry standard that simplifies the installation process, improves flexibility, lowers costs and makes building solar systems a more enjoyable experience.

The Hoymiles installation solution features two sets of accessories specifically designed for PV systems using Hoymiles HMS series of microinverters: one tailored for systems using multiple microinverters and the other for smaller systems utilizing a single microinverter.

HMS Trunk Connectors:Composed of a set of accessories for connecting multiple microinverters in a system, this solution includes a new trunk connector, an extension cable connector, a disconnect tool and more. With these ready-made components, customers will spend significantly less time setting up their microinverter systems.

HMS Field connector:Designed for single-microinverter systems in residential applications, this solution enables users to directly connect the microinverter to the AC cable to complete the grid connection. This minimizes installation effort and reduces costs.

Cost and time are top of the list for users and solar installers. Traditional setups generally require extensive manual disconnecting, stripping and wiring, so Hoymiles aims to rework the traditional installation method to lower technical barriers and improve the customer experience.

"Oftentimes, innovation is not only about rolling out completely new concepts or technologies, but also about retrofitting and iterating current solutions to make things simpler for customers," said Hoymiles product director Steven Zhang. "Our new accessories will greatly simplify the installation process, meaning that installers can get more systems done and homeowners can also try out installing their systems themselves because our plug-and-play doesn't require much technical effort."

Designed to operate within an ambient temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, the accessories can handle higher currents when the PV system is in use. And the leading IP68 rating highlights that there is full protection against solids and water, even in harsh weather conditions.
