Suzlon Brand Solar cables connect the solar panels and other electrical components in the photovoltaic system. The cables are usually installed in indoor and outdoor areas, industrial areas, the agricultural sector and even in hazardous explosive areas.
Characteristics of Solar Cables
It is designed to withstand high UV rays, high temperatures, low toxicity, fire, ozone and weathering. Solar Cables is an eco-friendly product that helps to get electricity from solar power, which is a huge effort for energy conservation. The solar cables are tested to operate at a maximum conductor temperature up to 120◦C. Therefore, its life expectancy is more than 25 years in the normal usage conditions.
Construction of the Solar Cable
First layer- Outer Sheath: The sheath is cross-linked halogen-free, UV protected and ozone resistant with black or red colour.
Second layer- Insulation: The insulation comes after the outer sheath layer, cross-linked with halogen-free and flame-retardant. It is available in white, black or red.
Third Layer- Conductor: The Conductor comes after the insulation layer, it is a flexible electrolytic with a tinned fine copper.
