The XW Conduit Box mounts directly to the bottom of an inverter/charger to safely protect end-users from inadvertent contact with wiring or connections. It comes bundled with the XW Power Distribution Panel and the XW Connection Kit; however, it is also is available separately for systems larger than two inverters, or to retrofit inverters into existing systems which may already have AC/DC disconnects.
The Conduit Box is easily secured with two screws provided on the bottom of the inverter. The bottom flange of the conduit box can then be attached (fasteners not provided) to the wall to complete the installation. The front panel of the conduit box can be removed by removing the two screws on the front, allowing ample space to make all necessary wire connections.
In multi-unit installations, the sides of adjacent conduit boxes can be removed to create an effective raceway with lots of volume to run AC and DC inverter cabling. The conduit box also includes multiple cable strap points, allowing the final installation to look clean and professional.
In addition, an internal sheet metal barrier is included to keep communications wires separate from AC and DC power wires.
