Lapp In­dia launches wa­ter-proof so­lar ca­bles

Power Watch India - - EQUIPMENT WATCH -

Lapp In­dia, a 100% sub­sidiary of the Lapp Group Ger­many and a lead­ing sup­plier of in­te­grated so­lu­tions and branded prod­ucts in the field of cable and con­nec­tion tech­nol­ogy in In­dia, has in­tro­duced its first per­ma­nently wa­ter­proof so­lar cable under the flag­ship ÖLFLEX® SO­LAR se­ries.

OLFLEX® SO­LAR wa­ter­proof se­ries is an elec­tron beam cross-linked so­lar cable which is durable and weath­er­re­sis­tant for use in pho­to­voltaic sys­tems. Its op­ti­mised cable de­sign and the con­stantly high in­su­la­tion re­sis­tance en­sure that it will still func­tion re­li­ably even after be­ing in wa­ter for long time. The cable is now also avail­able with rel­e­vant TUV and the lat­est EN cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

When pho­to­voltaic ca­bles are ex­posed to damp­ness over a long pe­riod of time, it can lead to de­creased per­for­mance and in­su­la­tion re­sis­tance – the con­se­quence of which may be short cir­cuits, which in turn can lead to fail­ure and dam­age to the re­spec­tive equip­ment. The ÖLFLEX® SO­LAR wa­ter­proof se­ries is a safe al­ter­na­tive – par­tic­u­larly in ar­eas which are prone to flood­ing, or where ca­bles are in­stalled un­der­ground in pro­tec­tive con­duits where wa­ter, heat and mois­ture can ac­cu­mu­late.

“Lapp is syn­ony­mous with ‘In­no­va­tion’ and we con­tin­u­ously strive to­wards de­vel­op­ing our prod­ucts and so­lu­tions keep­ing in mind the ap­pli­ca­tion re­quire­ments and high stan­dards of qual­ity. So­lar in­dus­try faces chal­lenges like large scale PV plant shut­down due to PV cable fail­ures ow­ing to flood like sit­u­a­tion. This has led us to the de­vel­op­ment of the first per­ma­nently wa­ter­proof PV cable. As a pi­o­neer in the pho­to­voltaic cable and con­nec­tion tech­nol­ogy, we strive to­wards not only meet­ing the cur­rent de­mands of the so­lar in­dus­try, but also ex­plor­ing in­no­va­tive ways to tap into the po­ten­tial of this fast grow­ing in­dus­try,” said Marc Jar­rault, MD – Lapp In­dia. Lapp has been mak­ing a name for it­self as a driv­ing force for in­no­va­tion in the pho­to­voltaic in­dus­try. OLFLEX SO­LAR wa­ter­proof se­ries of ca­bles was show­cased at Intersolar 2016.
