When constructing solar power plants during the installation of equipment, it is very important to use high-quality electrical materials, such as connecting cables, connectors and splitters. In the case of outdoor installation, cable and conductor products are exposed to extreme temperatures, moisture and direct sunlight. When using components that do not meet all technical requirements, poor-quality electrical contact can lead to failure of the solar power plant as a whole.
Our company complements its facilities with products manufactured according to the most advanced technologies and meeting the latest quality requirements, as evidenced by relevant certificates. The cable for solar power plants does not support spontaneous combustion, and therefore cannot be a fire hazard. This is due not only to insulation having resistance to fire, but also to the lack of sensitivity to short circuits. The service life, regardless of the conditions inside the building or on the street, reaches 25 years.
The main work and functionality of the photovoltaic system depends on the quality of equipment. High-quality products ensure the efficiency and reliability of power plants using renewable energy sources. When designing, it is necessary to pay attention to such indicators as: cable cross-section depending on the number and power of solar batteries, maximum current, length of connections, peak power, temperature, insulation and sheath parameters. Connectors, cables and other products are used to organize the installation of solar PV power plants.
In our company you can order all types of equipment and component parts for solar power systems, including solar cable and МС- 4 sockets for connection of solar modules. The basic requirement for cables and sockets (connectors), used for commutation (connection) of separate sunny batteries, is to minimize transmission losses of generated electric power from photo-electric panels to the end-use customer. Losses minimization on switch nodes and cables (conductors) is a way to increase solar power-station efficiency ratio.
Special sockets, also called connectors, are used to combine several solar modules with further commutation to an invertor. Connector (cable socket) must comply following requirements:
МС4 connectors meet joint standard, they are used by all manufacturers making solar batteries, they are installed in powerful industrial solar power-stations as well as in small suburban houses. The use of МС4 connectors substantially facilitates solar batteries installation process, providing reliable and leakfree connection.
Special engineering design provides not only complete impermeability but also provides better transmission of heavy currents due to built-in silicon seal. МС4 connectors fits for cable size from 2 to 6 mm, maximal external diameter of the crimped cable equals 9 mm.
There are many types of different cables presented at the market nowadays, that may vary by current-carrying conductor material, conductor core diameter and isolation type. We may formulate several basic rules on cable choice for solar power-station:
We offer the most innovative and modern solar energy technologies to our customers, Avenston company presents selected assortment of cables and other components necessary to build solar power-stations and to provide their high productivity and reliability.
This cable is intended for use in PV installations e.g. acc. IEC 60364-7-712 and suitable for the application in/at equipment with protective insulation (protection class II). Our double insulated HIKRA®PLUS EN50618 solar cable is intended for permanent use outdoor and indoor, for free movable, free hanging and fixed installation. Robust materials defy the long-term influences of nature and offer a maximum quality and safety. In case of proper use, the expected lifetime of this product will be at least 25 years.
Thanks to its good resistance to atmospheric conditions, the cable has a specifically water repellent and can be laid underground.
