Silicone Solar Cables Deal With Harsh Weather

Cicoil-ARated for voltages up to 42 KVdc, Cicoil’s silicone jacketed Solar Power Cables have been designed to provide absolute reliability in solar panel interconnection and photovoltaic applications. These halogen-free cables are flame retardant, performing well when exposed to severe cold and heat (-65°C to +260°C). The exclusive crystal-clear silicone encapsulation is resistant to tearing and will not deform, break or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles, even under tight bending radius and constant flexing conditions. The silicone compound is self-healing from small punctures, and cable jacket damage can be repaired in the field, ensuring continued service life. The silicone extruded cables do not require external armor or conduit for protection, and are unaffected when exposed to UV-radiation, sunlight, ozone, abrasion, salt, coarse sand, submersion, acid rain, ice, vibration, shock, humidity, mechanical stress, many chemicals and difficult weather conditions. The UL Recognized, CE Conforming and RoHS & REACH Compliant Solar Cables (30 AWG to 4 AWG) are available from stock in continuous lengths.
