Solar Cable

An off-grid solar system must have all the necessary equipment to generate, supply and store solar energy onsite. Off-grid solar systems are also referred to as standalone solar power systems, as they operate without a connection to any external power source. They are made up of 12 volt solar panels (or modules) that can be used individually or combined into a single array. The solar panels use a solar charge controller to send power to charge solar batteries and a solar inverter to convert direct current (DC), which the solar panel generates, to useable alternating current (AC). Off-grid solar systems are ideal for remote rural areas and applications where power sources are either impractical or unavailable.

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. DC solar cables are used within PV solar panels. String DC solar cables are used to interconnect solar panels. Main DC cables are large power cables that connect the positive and negative cables from the generator junction box to the central inverter. AC connection cables connect the solar power inverter to the protection equipment and the electrical grid.
