Benefits

  • The alternative for long-term storage in water, e.g. as it can occur in case after flooding or in buried conduits
  • Reduction of flame propagation and of toxic combustion gases in the event of fire
  • Robust against mechanical impacts
  • Extruded colour stripe serves as reverse polarity protection during installation.
  • Exact quantity control during installation by meter marking on the cable sheath

Application range

  • For floating PV/ canal top installations where cables are in contact with water or exposed to high humidity (see data sheet for more details)
  • For underground installation, for example in conduits which water, heat, and moisture may accumulate in
  • Suitable for direct burial: see data sheet
  • In September 2018 and based on AD8 watertightness, this product was recommended by Solartechnik Bayern for installation in ground typically realized via underground circuits for PV applications, whereas underground sand beds are not required to channel off water anymore, thanks to this cable's AD8 grade
