Rated for voltages up to 42,000 Vdc, Cicoil’s Flexx-Sil jacketed single conductor and multi-conductor power cables have been designed to provide absolute reliability in solar panel powered systems.
Cicoil’s Crystal-Clear cable designs allow for uninterrupted performance in operation critical applications, such as low earth orbit Cubesats, ground based autonomous vehicles, drones and aircraft, Space Rovers and power subsystems, electric delivery trucks, floating solar farms, stadiums and various innovative solar projects.
Unlike other types of solar cables that become brittle when utilized in harsh outdoor environments, Cicoil’s Flexx-Sil cables do not require external “armor” or conduit for protection. The ultra-durable outer jacket is “self-healing” from small punctures and will not deform or prematurely age due to prolonged exposure to UV rays, high levels of sunlight, ozone, radiation, intense heat (260°C), acid rain, flames, salt water, humidity, fungus, cold temperatures (-65°C), vibration, shock, weathering, coarse sand, mechanical stress, most chemicals and tough weather conditions.
Cicoil’s highly flexible Flexx-Sil jacketed solar cables (30 to 4 AWG) are available in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies, complete with connectors of your choice. In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coatings, larger and smaller AWG sizes, and lower/higher voltage designs by request.
Cicoil’s sunlight and heat resistant solar cables are low smoke zero halogen. flame retardant, do not shed harmful contaminants, are low outgas to ASTM E-595, RoHS & REACH Compliant and are cured continuously, with no debris or material impurities in an automated, climate-controlled environment. The cables also pass UL/CSA VW-1, FT 1 & FT 2, UL 94V-0 flammability testing and FAA burn testing.
