The cables used for wiring the DC section of a grid-connected wind or PV system need to be selected to ensure that they can withstand the environmental, voltage and current conditions at which they may be expected to operate, including the heating effects of both current and sun.

Double insulated single core cable for use together with polarized weatherproof DC connectors to allow fast, easy connection of solar modules, speeding installation time and eliminating wiring errors.

Special tools are required for crimping the connectors to the cable.
