Solar DC Cable and Fire Survival Cable (Quality Control) Order, 2023

·        A Solar DC Cables (Electric Cable for Photovoltaic Systems) are primarily used for the interconnection of the various elements of photovoltaic system such as solar panel arrays. These cables are designed for connecting photovoltaic power supply systems. These cables can be used indoor & outdoor for flexible and fixed installations with high mechanical strength in extreme weather conditions.

·       Fire Survival Cable are designed to sustain the high temperatures for a defined minimum period of time under direct fire. The construction of these cables is different if compared with ordinary cables. The conductor is manufactured with a specially designed heat barrier and fire resistant insulation which resists the fire to reach conductor surface. The cable continues to remain into operation at high temperatures like 650°C, 750°C and 950°C as per various conditions of operation and applications. It is used in Nuclear power plants, Airports, Metro Rails, Refineries, High rise building, Shopping mall, and Cinema theatres etc.
