  • SunGuard™ XLPE, 2/Conductor<br>Duplexed Photovoltaic Wire<br>2000V, UL Type PV/RHH or RHW-2 or<br>600V USE-2 or c(UL) RWU90, 1kV, 90 °C

    Duplexed conductors are sunlight-resistant, photovoltaic wire rated 90ºC wet or dry, 2000 volts for interconnection wiring of grounded and ungrounded photovoltaic power systems as described in Section 690.31(A) and other applicable parts of the National Electrical Code (NEC), NFPA 70.  For use in free air, raceways or direct burial in accordance with NEC. 

    Conductor: 8 AWG thru 1000 kcmil compact aluminum ACM (8000 series) conductors. Insulation is Flame-Retardant Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE), black, suitable for 2000 V

    Duplexing: One phase conductor is black, the other conductor is black with three white stripes. Conductors are pre-twisted together on reel


    • Rated 90ºC wet and dry
    • Deformation-resistant at high temperatures
    • Excellent moisture resistance, exceeds UL 44
    • Stable electrical properties over a broad temperature range
    • Excellent resistance to crush and compression cuts
    • Resistant to most oils and chemicals
    • UV/sunlight-resistant
    • Meets cold bend test at -40ºC
    • Use Duplex SunGard to avoid mismatch of Positive and Negative sets
    • Reduce labor costs and equipment cost for laying cable in trench by deploying one reel, instead of two
