Solar Cable Overview

As part of expanding the SOLARLOK product line, TE Connectivity produces wire that is designed to meet the harsh environmental conditions typical of photovoltaic installations. The ZKLA flexible, dual wall, halogen free and cross linked solar wire offers long term stability with TÜV UL approval. Its outstanding features include: high resistance against environmental conditions such as humidity, UV-radiation and ozone. In addition, it has excellent resistance to abrasion and temperature extremes. The wire has a high dielectric withstanding voltage and due to its fine-stranded, tin plated copper conductor, it is easy to handle, bend, route, and to strip.

USE-2 Approved Solar Cable – For the North American Market UL approved cable is offered in 10 through 14 AWG. This cable is approved for USE-2, XHHW-2, RHW-2, or RHH. Sunlight, gasoline, and petroleum resistance make this an ideal cable for any solar installation in North America. A high strand count increases the flexibility and tinned copper wire strands ease the use of this cable.
