Seems like already covered, but could be many things.

Myer's hubs and cable glands as far as entering enclosures goes. . . at least in my part of the world. I'm sure there are other things as stated above. The MC4 type is more so for connecting conductors together. Not so much to and through the enclosure.

Cord grip, cord connector, weather tight cable connecter, etc ?
Also "strain relief".

For PV wire you really need to specify that though.

Heyco is the brand I'm most familiar with. I'm not aware of any others with a good selection that are engineered with PV in mind, although there may be others.

Google "Heyco pv wire" along with "strain relief", "cord grip", etc, and you will be able to find what your looking for, and places online to purchase.

You won't find these at your local electrical supplier.

According to the data sheet, those are not connectors. They are cord grips that allow the wires to pass into the box and be terminated inside on a lug or terminal strip.
Many of us call them cord connectors just like connectors we use for raceways.

They connect a wiring method to an enclosure.
