SmartSolar, a Swedish renewable energy company specializing in solar panel installations, recently had the opportunity to test Melbye’s innovative solar cable. The results have been impressive, highlighting the cable’s potential for effective, long-lasting and user-friendly solar installations.

The challenge

When installing solar panels, it's crucial to select cables that ensure a safe, efficient, and long-lasting installation. The cables need to be flexible, durable, UV and weather-resistant, and electrically efficient.

The solution

By using 4 and 6mm² solar cable from Melbye, SmartSolar achieved a safe installation with a highly flexible and user-friendly cable.

“The quality is good, and the insulation material ensures that it feels more flexible and smoother. This is very desirable when working with solar cables. The cable also meets European requirements and is tested according to CPR certification for Euroclass Dca - S1. D2. A1, guaranteeing a safe installation for our customers.”

The solar cable from Melbye is also an excellent choice for projects that require a more discreet and stylish installation, thanks to the design with a black cable and red stripe, rather than a solid red cable.
