With a strong commitment to innovation and sustainability, Southwire developed an answer to customer needs for enhanced UV protection PV wire slated for solar installations above ground.  Southwire’s newly-introduced Super Sunlight Resistant – SSR PV cable provides a solution for ever-present solar rays, which age jackets on exposed above ground solar cables.

Doug Ramsey, Southwire’s senior vice president of industrial sales said, “As a leading manufacturer in the solar PV market, we are excited to introduce a new super sunlight resistant (SSR) family of products.”

 “Customers have asked for PV products that maintain their color under the harsh sunlight and UV environment, and our SSR cable answers this request,” he added further.

Understanding the challenges faced with harsh solar conditions, Southwire sought to help improve the longevity of jacket color on cable used in solar farms. The company’s engineers developed a solution to prolong and maximize sunlight resistance.

Extensive laboratory testing on the SSR product has proven its longevity for color retention as well as superseding elevated tensile and elongation trials.
