With the NEC 2020 Solar Label Package, safety is in the bag

The all-in-one label kit helps installers comply with regulations.

Milwaukee-HellermannTyton has grouped all the solar labels needed for PV equipment to comply with the 2020 update to Article 690 of the National Electrical Code. The label is distributed as a kit called the NEC 2020 Solar Label Value Pack, which is available through a nationwide network of distributors.

As PV systems grow and evolve, the required labels need to be changed to ensure a safe and informed installation. Every three years, the Code Creation panel is reconvened to review existing labels and their messages to determine any necessary changes. These include addressing new practices, improvements to improve understanding and readability, and reductions in redundancy and other inefficiencies.

The Solar Label Value Pack was developed to make it easy for solar system contractors to apply all the labels they need without resorting to guesswork. All Hellermann Tyton solar labels are fully compliant with the National Electric Code.

“The Code Committee has made significant updates towards 2020,” said Todd Fries, Product Category Manager at HellermannTyton. This has been working for NEC’s Code Creation Panel 4 for a long time. “All of the Article 690 updates have been improved in terms of safety and ease of use, but we encourage installers to check their local code to make sure they are compliant.”

Proper labeling guarantees more than a safe installation. Passing the inspection for the first time saves time and money.
