USE-2 600V PV Wire for Solar Applications

USE-2 is suitable for all solar wiring solutions as interconnection wiring of grounded photovoltaic power systems.

USE-2 600V PV Wire for Solar Applications

USE-2 600V PV Wire for Solar Applications

USE-2 PV wire a single conductor, cross-linked polyethylene (XLP/XLPE) Type of solid or stranded bare annealed copper. The insulation material is sunlight resistant and is designed to operate at up to 600 V.

Tough insulation that’s heat, moisture, oil, and gasoline resistant, withstands high temperatures and harsh conditions, and its black insulation resists ultraviolet sunlight very well, and can, therefore, be used with no issue in outside applications.

Our USE-2 is produced to the following specifications and requirements:

UL listed Type USE-2 600V; Type PV 600V;

UL Standard 854: Standard for Safety for Service Entrance Cables.

UL Standard 4703: Outline of Investigation for Photovoltaic Wire, PV Wire.

meets cold bend test at -40°C; UL sunlight resistant; UL VW-1 flame resistant.

ASTM B3 – Standard specification for soft or annealed copper wire.

ASTM B8 – Standard specification for concentric lay stranded copper conductors; hard, medium and soft.

RoHS compliant.
