Electric Cable Testing for Photovoltaic Systems

Testing for Electric cables for photovoltaic systems with a voltage rating of 1,5 kV DC as per EN 50618 & IEC 62930

ITC INDIA is the best maintained and Managed Electrical & Electronic laboratory.

ITC is accredited by NABL, TEC & BIS.

EN 50618 & IEC 62930 Covers:

This document applies to single-core cross-linked insulated power cables with cross-linked sheath. These cables are for use at the direct current (DC) side of photovoltaic systems, with a rated DC voltage up to 1,5 kV between conductors and between conductor and earth. This document includes halogen free low smoke cables and cables that can contain halogens. The cables are suitable to be used with Class II equipment as defined in IEC 61140. The cables are designed to operate at a normal continuous maximum conductor  temperature of 90 °C. The permissible period of use at a maximum conductor temperature of 120 °C is limited to 20 000 h.
