Highland Heights, KY – General Cable, a cable solutions provider for solar applications from the sun to the outlet, is pleased to announce that its SunGen® PV UL 4703 Wire is now available in an array of sunlight resistant solid colors in all gauge sizes. Recent changes to the National Electric Code (NEC®) require that photovoltaic (PV) source, output and inverter circuits must be identified at all points of termination, connection and splices. Therefore, General Cable has engineered new colored UL 4703 PV Wire to provide installers with properly colored wire, eliminating the need for marking tape or tagging as a means of identification ― saving time and money. Quality wire and cable is one of the most critical components for solar PV system performance and lifetime. SunGen® colored jacket PV Wire is the ideal value-add solution for ease of installation over wire that is only identified with a colored stripe. Engineered to withstand the harsh operating environments of solar power applications, General Cable’s SunGen line of fully-colored PV Wire offers superior resistance to UV sunlight, while providing stable electrical properties for temperatures ranging from -40°C to 120°C. General Cable’s full line of PV wire is the only product on the market today that is made in accordance with both UL 4703 and CSA RPVU90, and meets the requirement for direct burial.
