Some installers that use a lot of E-Panels have asked for additional room inside the E-Panel. We created the Stretched OB version for these professionals. It is based on the 50% wider Magnum Energy chassis. In addition to more room to work, you also get a PV input busbar, Battery Plus and DC negative busbar. No need for ring terminals anymore with this system! There are also additional knockouts top and bottom for lightning arrestors and cabling. Professionals feel the additional $70 list price is well worth it.
The PV plus busbar is extremely handy when installing a lightning arrestor to the PV input. That placement is possibly the most important spot for a lightning arrestor. Other DC boxes such as Flexware do not accommodate this connection. The PV busbar also makes it easy to bring in up to 1/0 wires and then reduce to 6AWG to feed the 63 amp disconnect breaker. The DC busbar is also very useful for all DC connections like charge control disconnect output, battery status monitor hook up, and a bus to feed DC load breakers.
