SOLAR CABLE

Application

Solar cables are intented for use in photovoltaic power supply systems and similar applications as free hanging, movable, fixed installation and buried in ground in constructional covered systems. The cables can be used indoor, outdoor, in hazard explosion areas, in industry and agriculture. They are suitable for applications in equipment with protective insulation (protecting Class 2).
