Silicone solar cables

Silicone solar cables, rated for voltages up to 42,000 Vdc, provide absolute reliability in solar-panel interconnection and photovoltaic applications. The halogen-free cables are flame retardant, highly flexible, and perform well when exposed to severe heat and cold (–65 to 260°C).

The cable’s crystal-clear silicone encapsulation resists tearing, and will not deform, break, or wear during its 10 million cycles+ lifetime, even under tight bending radius and constant flexing conditions. The silicone “selfheals” from small punctures and cable jacket damage can easily be repaired in the field. The silicone-extruded cables do not require external “armor” or conduit for protection, and are unaffected when exposed to UV-radiation, sunlight, ozone, abrasion, salt, coarse sand, submersion, acid rain, ice, vibration, shock, humidity, mechanical stress, many chemicals, and difficult weather conditions.

The 30 to 4-awg cables are available in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies.
