Male and Female Solar MC4 Plugs / Type 4 Plugs

Tuesday, 24 October 2017  |  Admin

We often get asked which is the female and which one is the male solar connector that's supplied with our solar kits. These solar plugs are known as either a type 4 plug or MC4 connector. Below is a photo I have taken to help identify the male and female connectors. It's the internal metal plug that decides this and the smaller male plug goes inside the longer female plug. 

Hopefully this will also help when you are crimping your solar plugs!
