Solar

Solar Cables are a combination of several insulated wires wrapped in an outer jacket. They are used to interconnect solar panels and other components of an off-grid solar system. They can withstand high temperatures, high UV radiation and all types of weather. Solar cables vary in diameter depending on the number of wires they contain and can be classified into three different types: DC solar cables, solar DC main cables and solar AC connection cables.

Solar Panels absorb sunlight with photovoltaic cells to create a direct current (DC). This current is routed through a solar charge controller and then directed to a battery bank for storage. Current can then be drawn from the battery through a DC to AC solar inverter to create usable power.

Solar Charge Controllers are used to deliver power from solar panels to system loads and to solar batteries. When the batteries are nearly full, the charge controller will taper off the charging current to maintain the required voltage to fully charge the batteries and keep them topped off. By regulating the voltage, the charge controller protects the batteries from overcharging and undercharging.
