Remee introduces renewable energy cables
Remee Wire & Cable introduced their new line of renewable energy cables, designed for wind and solar energy operations.
PV (Photovoltaic) Cable – XLPE (Cross-linked Polyethylene) insulation, 600V – 2000V, aluminum (1/0 AWG to 1000kcmil), copper (#12 AWG to 1000kcmil), stranded. UL 4703. RoHS compliant.
Ground Wire – Bare copper (#12 AWG to 1000kcmil), meets ASTM B1, ASTM B2, ASTM B3, ASTM B8 or ASTM B33 standards. Copper clad steel (CCS 30 per cent or 40 per cent Conductivity; #2 AWG to 4/0 AWG), meets ASTM B193, ASTM B227, ASTM B228, ASTM B452 or ASTM B910 standards.
Fibre Optic Cable – Single Mode, 12 to 96 fibers, RoHS compliant.
Control / Motor Tracker Cable – Stranded copper conductor (#18 AWG to #6 AWG), CPE/PVC jacket. UL 2277. RoHS compliant.
Harnesses – PV cable with XLPE (Cross-linked Polyethylene) insulation, pre-terminated in coils or on reels, cut-to-length (up to 12 strings) with choice of connectors.
Copper PV harnesses, or strings, carry the power generated from each row to the combiner box (input), which is then carried by aluminum PV cables (output) to the inverter, which converts DC current to AC current. The inverter is then connected to a transformer to step up the voltage (low to medium), where it terminates at the substation. Fibre optic cable is used for communication between motors and blocks of solar panels to a final data and/or MET station.
