Arcon y cable quality

DC cables are the “life veins“ of every PV system. In comparison with other PV structure parts, the DC cabeling makes only 1% of the total investment costs of a new power plant. The cost savings from buying cheap cable harnesses are quickly lost if increased contact resistances or leakage current losses occur.

The ArCon DC cabling system offers first-class quality at a good price-performance ratio. No other cabling harness system has a comparable high degree of tightness as our Arcon series manufactured in Germany. This ArCon system is therefore ideally suited for the construction of floating PV power plants, in particular.

Uniquie vulcanization process

Vulcanization process

The uniquie vulcanization process creates an irreversible chemical bond between the cable sheath and the ArCon.

Vulcanization ensures permanent tightness, even under mechanical stress and extreme climatic conditions. The ArCon encloses the joints with the same material as the sheathing of the respective photovoltaic cable.
Marcel Heilmann, production manager at Jurchen Technology

The ArCon system is offered in single-string and double-string design and with cabling accessories such as in-line fuses.
