Solar Products Panel Heaters Electrical Termination Options

Solar Products Flat-faced Radiant Panel Heaters
Solar Products, Inc.
228 Wanaque Ave 
Pompton Lakes, NJ 07442

We are a distributor for Solar Products, Inc.

The flag type terminal consists of a flat piece of stainless steel that is .350" (8.9mm) wide x .032" (0.81mm) thick with a .187" (4.75mm) hole near the end. This is the Solar Products preferred termination due to the excellent electrical contact that is achieved with this type of connection. All of the electrical terminal options are typically housed within a 2" x 4" (51mm x 101.6mm) or 4" x 4" (101.6mm x 101.6mm) electrical box.
The stud type terminal consists of a threaded stud that exits the heater for electrical connection. Many lengths and size studs are available. The disadvantage of a stud type terminal is the current limit of the stud. Electrical current is only carried on the threads of the stud.
Another version of this connection is the ceramic block flag type terminal. This design makes use of the flag type terminal exiting the heater that is then bent over a ceramic mounting block with a vertically mounted stud. This approach uses the stud as a means of easy connection, but not as a current carrying device. Therefore, higher current can be carried through the electrical connection. This type of connection is not available on all heaters. Consult Solar Products for your specific heater requirements.
The wire leads option is a fourth termination option available on Solar Products heaters. This option is only available on heaters with the watt density lower than 10 wsi (15.5 kw/m2). A high temperature wire is resistance welded to an intermediate piece of stainless steel which is in turn resistance welded to the heating element. The wire leads can be any required length.
