PV Next – combiner boxes of a new generation

With PV Next, Weidmüller offers the world's first combiner box concept based on a standardised printed circuit board design.

This concept is not only very robust, but also reduces the use of materials such as copper and plastic by 25%. At the same time, the design enables an easy, fast and safe installation. The integrated PUSH IN technology, for example, reduces installation times and minimises the risk of errors and the resulting consequences.

Many different variants for commercial and residential buildings from stock

PV Next protects the PV system against overvoltages and short circuits and also offers the option of combining strings. The various designs are done to protect all string inverters available in the European market. Find the matching combiner box for the most common inverter types below or find more variants in our Combiner Box Product Selector.

German Design Award Gold for PV Next

Our flexible and compact PV Next combiner box was awarded the German Design Award 2023 in Gold. The modular design, the safe thermal and mechanical functionality of all components and the flexible connection types are just some of the advantages that make installation, maintenance and monitoring with PV Next easy.

Your benefits at a glance



The unique PCB design allows quick and easy integration of additional functions. For example, a switch can be integrated or a second MPPT can be connected directly to the first PCB.



With the PUSH IN connection technology, PV-Next offers the most straightforward and safest connection concept for cabling. The installation can be carried out without crimping and without special tools.



The intuitive design and PUSH IN connection technology make installation safer and quality assurance easier. The risk of screw connections with incorrect torque is eliminated, which is one of the main risks for fires.

Combiner Boxes - The most innovative concept for string inverters

Fits for all inverter types

The product portfolio is designed for the protection of string inverters with 1 to 12 MPP trackers and so covers all common inverters available on the market.

Fused and non-fused

The fused version is optional for protection of the panels from reverse current. The pcb without additional fuses is slimmer.

Surge protection

All boxes are protecting your panels or inverters from surges. Our standard protection on the pcb are arresters in type 1.

PUSH IN connection on board

The integrated maintenance free PUSH IN technology for the inputs/ outputs significantly reduces working time and error susceptibility.

Plug & Play connection

Choose the WM4 C connection for the ready-to-use box and reduce your operation time significantly. The other option is to choose cable glands and do your individual cabeling.

Switch on request

For many solar engineers it is important to have a switch on the box. In other regions it is not necessary. Your choice!

Variabel string bundeling

With our cable grafting variants, you can decide for yourself whether you want to bundle the strings together or whether you want to remove the same number again. The sealing set that is included covers both possibilities.

Protects all demands

From 2IN, over 2MPPT up to 6MPPT or 6IN-1OUT up to 6IN-6OUT - we can now protect every need with our boxes.
