Description

Description

Standards

  • National
    CSA C22.2 N° 271; CSA C22.2 N° 38

RPVU90 cables offer exceptional performance, easy installation and long-term reliability for DC and AC connections. They link photovoltaic panels on rooftops or solar farms, and also connect them to the array box (if one exists), and to the inverter which transforms DC solar energy into usable AC electricity. These cables have a wet and dry temperature rating of 90°C, are UV resistant, may be direct buried, and are certified as CSA type RPVU90. 

Application


Nexans RPVU90 cables may be installed indoors or outdoors, in raceways and conduits, both above and below ground, and may be direct buried. Direct buried installations must comply with CE Code Rules 12-012 and 4-004. They are 90ºC, 2 kV rated, and suitable for use in a photovoltaic system.

 

Type RPVU90 cables are for use on the DC and AC side of a photovoltaic system, suitable for installation in both wet and dry locations, and may be exposed to sunlight.

Nexans RPVU90 cables are RoHS Compliant.
