6 mmï¿½, single-core, black, 100mï¿½NEWï¿½H1Z2Z2-K certified
100m solar cable with length label.ï¿½
Manufactured against the latest European Standard EN 50618 and with the harmonised designation H1Z2Z2-K, these Solar DC Cable are specified cables for use in Photovoltaic (PV) systems, and in particular those for installation at Direct Current (DC) side with a nominal DC voltage of up toï¿½1.5kVï¿½between conductors as well as between conductor and earth, and not exceedingï¿½1800V.ï¿½EN 50618 requires cables to be low smoke zero halogen and be flexible tin-coated copper conductors with a single core and cross-linked insulation and sheath. Cables are required to be tested at a voltage of 11kV AC 50Hz and have an operating temperature range of -40oC to +90oC. H1Z2Z2-K supersedes the previous Tï¿½V approved PV1-F cable.
H1Z2Z2-Kï¿½PHOTOVOLTAIC CABLE CONSTRUCTION
- Conductorï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ Flexible tinned copper (Class 5)
- Insulationï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ Halogen-free cross-linked compound
- Outersheathï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ Halogen-free cross-linked flame retardant compound
The compounds used in these solar cable's insulation and outersheath are halogen free cross-linked, hence the reference to these cables as "cross-linked solar power cables". The EN50618 standard sheathing has a thicker wall than the PV1-F cable version.
As with the Tï¿½V PV1-F cable, the EN50618 cable benefits from a double-insulation offering increased safety. The Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) insulation and sheathing makes them suitable for use in environments where corrosive smoke would present a risk to human life in the event of fire.
