ZMS Cables’ Top Solar Wire and Cable

The solar market is one of the fast-growing markets in the world and is expected to grow by 20% in the next few years. Therefore, it is only natural that there are many cable products for solar panels on the market. This quick guide will help you understand the differences between the main solar cable types offered by ZMS Cables.
Photovoltaic cables come with both aluminum and solar conductors. Both are popular, with aluminum being much cheaper than copper. Copper photovoltaic cables have excellent electrical conductivity. The differences between the two are examined in more detail below.

Aluminum Solar Cables

Aluminum 600V PV cable utility wire is the standard aluminum PV cable used in low-voltage solar power systems. It is used for both grounded and ungrounded solar power systems. This cable is also suitable for commercial and residential wiring. The aluminum used in this cable is a compressed 8000 series aluminum alloy. It has better electrical conductivity than other types of aluminum on the market.

Aluminum 2KV PV cable Utility Wire is an aluminum PV cable for high voltage applications. High voltage solar panels are typically more powerful. They produce more consistent power and generate electricity faster. Low voltage panels also have their benefits; they are cheaper to install, easier to install, and have a much lower probability of electrocution.

Copper Solar Cables

PV Wire PV cable single core 2000V This PV cable with copper conductors is suitable for direct burial. It has RHH/RHW-2 and RWU90 ratings. The cable voltage is 2000v.

PV Wire PV cable single core 600V is an analog of the above-mentioned cable. Unlike the 2000 V cable, it can also be used for USE-2 applications. Both these types of 600 V and 2000 V PV cables are single-core, which means they have a single conductor and insulation.

PV Wire PV cable 2000 V mm² is a multi-strand copper PV cable. Having multiple conductor strands is usually beneficial for PV cables because if one strand is damaged, the other strands will continue to work.

USE-2 cables

In addition to photovoltaic cables, USE-2 cables can also be used for photovoltaic panels. USE-2 is a cheaper alternative for grounded low-voltage 600V systems rated at 90°C. Both aluminum and copper USE-2 cables are suitable for solar panels.
