Industrial Introduces PowerLink Single Jacket Photovoltaic (PV) Cable
November 20, 2012
Amphenol Industrial Global Operations now offers a single jacket photovoltaic (PV) cable used for interconnection wiring in grounded and ungrounded PV systems. Amphenol's PowerLink solar cable is ideal for use on utility solar farms and in commercial and residential solar projects.
Designed with a smaller outer diameter than a standard dual jacket, the single jacket PV cable is more malleable and makes crimping connectors easier.
The new cable, which is offered from 6 AWG to 18 AWG, is sunlight resistant and suitable for direct burial. It has a temperature rating of 90°C wet or dry and a cold bend of -40°C. Its voltage rating ranges from 600 V to 2000 V. This new RoHS compliant, UL4703-rated cable has a flammability rating of VW-1.
Unlike a dual jacket cable that is only available in black to meet 720UV requirements, the PowerLink solar cable is manufactured in a variety of colors including black, white, red, blue, green, yellow and orange.
