As solar cable specialists, we offer complete connecting solutions for PV power plants, solar roof systems, and wire harnesses. This robust outdoor cable range is designed to withstand severe environmental conditions and degradation from UV light exposure.
FRCABLE solar cables are TUV, UL, IEC, and JET certificated, which provide the optimal cable connection between the solar modules and from the solar modules to the inverter. When used in accordance with instructions, the expected lifetime is at least 25 years.
Q: What does UL certification mean for solar cables?
A: UL certification is a quality assurance process verifying that solar cables meet the relevant safety, performance, and durability standards set by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a global leader in testing, inspection, and certification services. UL certification is recognized and accepted by authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs), inspectors, code officials, etc. in North America.
Q: Why is UL certification important?
A: UL certification is important because it shows that a cable meets safety, performance, quality, and reliability standards. It also shows that a cable complies with local and federal regulations. You can trust that a UL-certified cable is safe and suitable for your needs.
Q: How to identify UL-certified solar cables?
A: UL-certified solar cables can be identified by the UL mark that is printed or embossed on their surface along with other information such as voltage rating, temperature rating, fire performance rating, etc. The UL mark may vary depending on the type of cable and its intended use. The UL mark indicates that UL has tested and certified the cable according to its applicable standards.
Q: What are UL cable ratings?
A: UL cable ratings are numerical codes that indicate the voltage, temperature, insulation, thickness, and application of a UL cable. For example, UL PV Cable 10 AWG is a multi-conductor control cable with dc 2000v, 120°C, and Tin-Plated copper.
Q: What are the advantages of UL solar cables over non-UL solar cables?
A: 1) UL solar cables undergo rigorous testing and evaluation to ensure they meet or exceed the requirements of UL standards; 2) they comply with the National Electrical Code (NEC), which helps avoid potential delays, fines, or rework due to non-compliance issues; 3) They carry the trusted UL mark that indicates their conformity to UL standards.
