New PV Cable from Amphenol Used in Grounded and Ungrounded Systems

New PV Cable from Amphenol Used in Grounded and Ungrounded Systems

Amphenol Industrial Global Operations now offers a single-jacket photovoltaic (PV) cable used for interconnection wiring in grounded and ungrounded PV systems.  Amphenol’s PowerLink solar cable is ideal for use on utility solar farms and in commercial and residential solar projects.

Designed with a smaller outer diameter than a standard dual-jacket, the single-jacket PV cable is more malleable and makes crimping connectors easier. It is also available for fast delivery.

The new cable, which is offered from 6 AWG to 18 AWG, is sunlight-resistant and suitable for direct burial.  It has a temperature rating of 90°C wet or dry and a cold bend of -40°C.  Its voltage rating ranges from 600 V to 2000 V. This new RoHS-compliant, UL4703-rated cable has a flammability rating of VW-1.

Unlike a dual-jacket cable that is only available in black to meet 720UV requirements, the PowerLink solar cable is manufactured in a variety of colors including black, white, red, blue, green, yellow, and orange.
