    I could not find anything about AC65 connectors--Do you have a link?

    I would guess it's not a legal pairing.
    While they may "fit" only MC4 should be mated to MC4 from my understanding. 
     It's likely some mfg does not want to pay the trademark royalty to use "MC4" and they devised something to fit, but it will not be certified to mate with MC4

    hi Bill
    panel vmp is 58.95  imp is 10.87 voc 48.63
    inverter : max  panel array is 4000w   pv array mppt voltage is 130vd  max pv array open circuit voltage is 145vd

    inverter is MUST hybrid 5.5kw  and I do live in curacao.

    What about the inter panel connections ?  Should I use less panel? And what will the thickness  be for 35 meter lengt 

    I do have 12pcs  250ah batteries  to form 48v  and  750 ah


    Thanks for you attention and have a nice day

    Bob

    Bob, Is this the inverter/charger/solar controller (not sure--Lots of products)?

    https://www.mustsolar.com/ph1000-series-onoff-grid-hybrid-solar-inverter-3-6-5kw/

    Maximum DC voltage(V)580
    MPPT voltage range(V)120~550
    Maximum input current(A)11/11

    I think I have the wrong one--These specifications are quite different than yours??? If you can justify the above inverter (high voltage Vmp-array), it would probably be a nicer fit your your 35 meter cable run (high voltage, low current array, smaller diameter copper wire needed)...
