Alpha Wire's solar
cables and photovoltaic wire are designed for the harsh environments of
solar energy applications-the hot and cold of climate extremes, ozone and UV
radiation, moisture, oil and direct burial. The cables use a specially
formulated PVC jacket that can withstand the potential environments without
failing or degrading.
Available in a wire range from 14 to 2 AWG, the photovoltaic wires come
in two versions to meet either UL 4703 PV wire/TUV Pfg 1169 requirements or
UL 4703 PV wire requirements. UL 4703
PV wire/TUV photovoltaic wires are made with low-smoke, zero-halogen (LSZH)
materials which do not emit toxic gases when burned. The UL PV wire products
use a cross-linked polyethylene insulation and PVC jacket.
cables, in sizes from 18 to 12 AWG and conductor counts from 3 to 9, are
available shielded or unshielded. The
TC-ER and MTW-rated cables have an abrasion-resistant jacket.
the PV wire and solar cable are designed specifically for solar environments-they
are sunlight and oil resistant and withstand temperatures from -40 to +90C. The solar cables meet requirements for
direct burial without conduit.
Everyone has had the experience of trying to scrape the last of the peanut butter or mayonnaise from the bottom of a glass jar without getting your hand sticky. Inventor Ron Jidmar thinks he has a solution to all of that nonsense with a flexible jar design that can be squeezed with one hand to lift contents from the bottom to the top of a jar or container, leaving the other hand free to scoop the contents out cleanly.
