Solar power cable

Louise Smyth

Using fine wire stranded single-core conductors with double insulation, the new Flex-Sol-Evo cable from Multi-Contact has been designed for the high quality connection of PV solar arrays.

The economic cable enables space to be saved through the use of wiring panels at the module level and wiring combiner boxes/inverters at the string level.

Extremely rugged, its high mechanical strength is enhanced by irradiation cross-linking of its insulation materials. It retains the same benefits as Multi-Contact's Flex-Sol-XL solar cable, including RoHS conformity and low smoke emission, as well as being halogen-free and flame resistant.

Flex-Sol-Evo has a large number of certifications, including TUV to 1 kV and UL and EN to 1.5 kV. It is available with cross-sections from 2.5 mm2 to 10 mm2, with current ratings from 41A to 98A.
