Solar Panel Cable Extension 8 AWG, 2000V with MC Style Connector, Copper, UL 4703, PV Rated
with Solar Connectors ( MC Style )
We offer a complete line of Photovoltaic (PV) products per UL-4703. Our PV wire is sunlight-resistant comply with standards such as IEEE 1202/UL 1685-FT4 Flame Test, NEMC WC70/ICEA S-95-658, UL-854, UL-4703. While this product is suitable for outdoor rooftop applications without conduit, it is also suitable for use in conduits and raceways installed underground and in conduit in wet conditions where condensation and moisture accumulations within the conduit do not exceed 90°C. Our PV products are RoHS compliant and are great for wind energy applications such as power distribution in wind turbines, transformers, and generators.
In accordance with US electrical codes, the max current for circuits utilizing 8 gauge wire is 55 Amps. However, 8 gauge copper wire is capable of handling much higher currents. There is something called fusing current, the current at which a wire will melt. For 8 gauge copper, it is about 300 Amps.

SOLAR PV WIRE ( UL 4703 )
Solar PV wire is one such cable. It is ozone, UV, and moisture resistant cable used for interconnection wiring in photovoltaic systems. It is a durable cable rated at 90°C wet and up to 150°C in dry applications. It can be rated to 600, 1000, or 2000 volts. PV Wire can be used as an underground service entrance wire and is appropriate for both grounded and ungrounded PV arrays. PV Wire meets UL Standard 4703.
RoHS compliance means that the cable is free of hazardous substances, making it even greener! Choosing solar power cables designed with non-hazardous materials puts an environmentally friendly cable in an environmentally friendly application, and it doesn’t get much better than that!
