Photovoltaic Solar Cable PV1-F from Eland Cables

TÜV approved Solar cable, intended for the interconnection of the various elements of photovoltaic systems such as solar panel arrays. Suitable for fixed installations, internal and external, within unprotected pipes, or in similar closed systems.

The cable is ozone-resistant according to EN50396, UV-resistant according to UNE-HD 605:2008 (HD605/A1), and is tested for durability according to EN 60216. The cable is tested to last 25 years.

These cables are especially designed for use in photovoltaic applications. They provide the optimal cable connection between the solar cells and from the solar cells to the inverter or DC main cable. These cables are suitable for outdoor ground and roof mounted systems - though not suitable for direct laying under the earth. They are also suitable laying indoors and in fixed pipe installation. Thanks to its halogen free, flame retardant and low smoke properties, these cables are also safe to care the health of inhabitants in case of fire.
