BS EN 50618:2014

Electric cables for photovoltaic systems (BT(DE/NOT)258)

Status : Current   Published : January 2015



This European Standard applies to low smoke halogen-free, flexible, single-core power cables with cross-linked insulation and sheath. In particular for use at the direct current (d.c.) side of photovoltaic systems, with a nominal d.c. voltage of 1,5 kV between conductors and between conductor and earth.

The cables are suitable to be used with Class II equipment.

The cables are designed to operate at a normal maximum conductor temperature of 90 °C, but for a maximum of 20 000 hours a max. conductor temperature of 120 °C at a max. ambient temperature of 90 °C is permitted.


The expected period of use under normal usage conditions as specified in this standard is at least 25 years.
