AVOCAB’s Solar Cables are a step towards creation of environment friendly cables for development of electricity through solar-power. It is our effort to take part in energy conservation. Our range of PV-cables (also known as SOLAR CABLES) are more ADAPTIVE, more ROBUST, RUGGED and more VERSATILE than ever before. These cables are made in compliance standards such as RoHS and CE Certification.

AVOCAB Solar cables are exclusively made for applications in photovoltaic power systems. A solar cable interconnects solar panels and other electrical components of photovoltaic system. These Solar cables are designed to be UV & Ozone resistant, Chemical and Oil resistant, with excellent FR Properties, propagates smoke with low Capacity when burned with external source and contains absolutely ZERO or Low halogen. This cable can survive extreme weather conditions. It can be used within a large temperature range and are generally laid outside. These cables can be installed at indoor in hazard area, in explosion areas, in industry and in agriculture.

SPECIAL PROPERTIES OF SOLAR CABLES

  • LIFETIME RELIABILITY: Lasts up to: 30 years even under tough external conditions.
  • OUTDOOR DURABILITY: Resists extreme temperatures (-40°C to 120°C maximum at the core) and Ozone resistant.
  • UV RESISTANCE: Full Protection against ultraviolet rays.
  • HALOGEN-FREE: Low smoke emission & Low toxicity / Corrosivity during fire.
  • PROPERTIES AGAINST FIRE: Flame Retardant, Fire Retardant.
  • FLEXIBILITY AND STRIP ABILITY: For fast and easy Installation.
  • FULLY RECYCLABLE: In accordance with new environmental regulations.
  • Easy Installation with color identification (blue, red).
  • Suitable to common connector types.

AVOCAB SOLAR CABLES RANGE

Solar cables are generally not installed in places where there is direct exposure to sunlight, however throughout the day time they are continuously exposed to diffused or indirect sunlight. Moreover they need to face extreme weather conditions and harsh hardling. Considering these conditions we have developed certain range of solar cables which can be used according to prevalent conditions of installation site. We also develop tailor made solar cables as per customer’s requirements.
