Alpha Wire, a designer and manufacturer of wire, cable and tubing products, has introduced a set of solar cables and photovoltaic wire designed for the harsh environments of solar energy applications.Â The cables use a specially formulated PVC jacket to provide years of service by withstanding the potential environments without failing or degrading, the company says.
Available in a wire range from 14 AWG to 2 AWG, the photovoltaic wires come in two versions to meet either UL 4703 PV wire/TUV 2 PFG 1169 requirements or UL 4703 PV wire requirements.Â UL /TUV photovoltaic wires are made with low-smoke, zero-halogen materials that do not emit toxic gases when burned. The UL PV wire products use a cross-linked polyethylene insulation and PVC jacket.
Solar cables, in sizes from 18 AWG to 12 AWG and conductor counts from 3 to 9, are available shielded or unshielded. The TC-ER and MTW-rated cables feature a tough and abrasion-resistant jacket to provide robust performance for years, Alpha Wire says.
