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.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
Weaned on the relatively effortless connectivity of today’s massive variety of consumer electronic products, automation users in the IIoT will likely not tolerate too many competing, piecemeal standards for long. And the Industrial Internet Consortium is trying to preempt history.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
