* Prysmian Group has developed an environmental simulator to demostrate in 20 minutes how different PV cables handle 15-20 years of workload, including weather conditions such as UV, ozone, heat and humidity. The results highlight the most common faults in PV cables such as discoloration, cable shrinkage, outer sheath cracks, gap between sheath and insulation. 

See the difference. Feel the difference. And choose TECSUN - cable that outperforms the standards of PV cables.
