The idea of generating electricity by using solar power is one of increasing interest for many individuals and businesses alike, as we all look towards the skies to make energy savings. At Lapp we supply photovoltaic cables of the highest quality.
The trend of sourcing the sun’s energy has been steadily growing over the previous decade. With technology improving and costs now reducing, in terms of the photovoltaic panels and the required accessories, the solar power market is still booming.
The use of solar energy has been increasing for many years and this trend is continuing. Photovoltaic panels have a wide range of uses, from major energy plants to small domestic applications. Many different Lapp products can be used for various roles inside photovoltaic panels.
Here at Lapp we realised the potential of the market very early on and have since built up a strong reputation and a solid specialist expertise in the area. This mirrors the innovative tradition of the company that our customers have become accustomed to. Our range includes tailor made products; we can provide complete solar cable solutions from rooftop to cellar, and our team of experts can advise you on your individual planning and conversion matters.
Continual Quality from Our Experts
Continuing in our history of collaboration with users, a variety of tests have been carried out with the TÜV (German Association for Technical Inspection) and the North American UL approval organisation. Because of the extreme stresses of heat and voltage that photovoltaic cables are put under; thorough testing is imperative.
The rapid growth in the market has been quite remarkable. However, there has been some confusion in the industry with some installations being fitted with unsuitable rubber insulated cables. These cables may perform in the short term, but with long term exposure to severe temperature fluctuations, they become brittle, arc and can pose a serious and dangerous threat to safety.
At Lapp we use only high quality compounds for our solar cables to ensure that our products will put up with the harshest conditions. OLFLEX® SOLAR cables are a prime example of this workmanship; they comply with RoHs directive and are certified to both national and international approvals. They are extremely popular with photovoltaic panel installers as they are not only resistant to UV, but also to extreme weather and temperature conditions.
We also supply all the necessary plugs, cables and solar photovoltaic accessories – we are the system of choice. Lapp have experts on hand that will gladly assist you and answer any questions relating to your photovoltaic cable needs.
