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.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
