General Cable has expanded into the distributed solar market with the introduction of its SunGen UL 4703 PV wire. The company says it will provide electrical distribution partners with solar cables in an assortment of solid colors, stocked regionally in contractor-friendly lengths.
PV applications require high-quality wire that provides excellent mechanical properties and superior sunlight resistance for outdoor installations, flame resistance for added safety and flexibility for easy handling, the company says.
SunGen PV wire is UL 4703 and CSA RPVU90 listed and VW-1 rated for maximum reliability in long-term outdoor sun exposure. The wire is also in compliance with NEC Code with properly colored PV wire for source circuit identification.
