The difference between photovoltaic cables and ordinary cables

Photovoltaic cables are constantly exposed to sunlight and solar systems are often used under harsh environmental conditions such as high temperatures and UV radiation. In Europe, sunny days can lead to solar system site temperatures of up to 100°C. At present, the various materials we can use are PVC, rubber, TPE and high-quality cross-link materials, but unfortunately, even a rubber cable rated at 90°C is a PVC cable rated at 70°C. None of them are suitable for the harsh environment encountered by special photovoltaic cables.

  What is the difference between photovoltaic cables and ordinary cables?

  The composition of this type of cable is similar to that of other cables, including conductors, insulating layers, sheaths, and necessary fillers. The characteristics of photovoltaic cables are determined by their special insulation and sheath materials for cables, which we call cross-linked PE. After being irradiated by an irradiation accelerator, the molecular structure of the cable material will change, thereby providing various aspects of its performance. .

  During installation and maintenance, cables can be routed over sharp edges of roof structures while cables must withstand compression, bending, tension, cross-tension loads, and severe impacts. If the cable sheath is not strong enough, the cable insulation will be severely damaged, affecting the service life of the entire cable or causing problems such as short circuits, fire and personal injury hazards.

  Materials cross-linked by radiation have high mechanical strength. The cross-linking process changes the chemical structure of the polymer, the meltable thermoplastic material is converted into a non-meltable elastomeric material, and the cross-linking radiation significantly improves the thermal, mechanical and chemical properties of the cable insulation.

   It is necessary to use special photovoltaic cables for photovoltaic projects.
