12 AWG 600 Volt Solar Wire is appropriate for use in solar power applications that require 600 volt rating. For use in grounded interconnection and ungrounded Photovoltaic power systems.
12 AWG 600 Volt Solar Wire Standard:
Adapted to PV systems, 2 Pfg 1169 / 08.2007 and UL.
12 AWG 600 Volt Solar Wire Electrical Parameters:
Voltage Rating : AC 0.6 / 1.0 kV Max. PV – System Voltage : DC up to 2.0 kV possible Max. Permissible Operating Voltage in AC Systems : 0.7 / 1.2 kV Max. Permissible Operating Voltage in DC Systems : 0.9 / 1.8 kV Test Voltage : AC 6 kV / DC 10 kV (15 min.)
12 AWG 600 Volt Solar Wire Construction:
600 Volt Wire Advantage:
600 Volt Solar Wire modules operate at high temperatures and are exposed to a variety of environmental conditions.
600 Volt Wire is manufactured for use in photovoltaic applications, while USE-2 cable types are typically manufactured for underground service entrance applications.
Both cable types commonly contain XLPE insulation and can be sunlight resistant and/or rated for direct burial.
