Belden has introduced a line of Solar Cables designed to support renewable energy initiatives. The cables are UL Type PV approved (UL 4703 USE-2 Rated) for use as the interconnection wiring of grounded and ungrounded photovoltaic power systems (Section 630.31).

 

Belden Solar Cables link together the solar panels found on solar farms, making the cables key to the transmission of electric energy from the solar panels to the transformers at the local energy storage substation and ultimately to the power grid and its commercial and residential electricity users.

 

The cables meet VW-1 flame test, are CE approved and RoHS compliant. 

 

Frank Koditek, Belden’s industrial cable product manager, said the firm “fully supports today’s clean and green technology goals, including the goal to expand the proliferation of solar energy, wherever feasible.”
