What can go wrong?
In the past few years, we have seen that, partly through the increasing demands of parties like insurers, more and more attention has been paid to the PV-cabling and cable management. Unreliable cable management has repeatedly led to incidents of catching fire. Cables hang under the PV-panels, connectors lie in the water, and any sharp edges of the mounting system can lead to damage of the cable if treated carelessly, or even breakage of the cable, with all of its dire consequences.

Valk Solar solution

Van der Valk Solar Systems have tried to eliminate the above-described doom scenarios as much as possible by introducing their ValkCableCare assortment with its extensive product range. ValkCableCare enables the electrical cabling to be concealed in a neat, safe and fast way under the panels or guided over the roof. It can all be integrated into ValkPro+ or ValkPitched mounting systems.

Example
With the ValkPro+ plastic cable clamp (732011) Rexel code: 7004254, the cabling can run under the panels with the complete system thanks to being secured to the rear foot. The aim is after all to have a PV-system that will remain in place on the roof for a long period, so protection of the PV-cables against the effect of the weather like excessive sunlight is desirable.

Plastic cable entry         
The risk of damaging cables to sharp roof tile edges when passing them from outside to inside is very high and can make the entire PV system unsafe. In addition, movement along edges due to wind can shorten the lifespan of cables.

With the Valk Solar cable entry, professional and safe cable routing becomes easy and fast. The integrated hook on the back of the product makes it easy to hang the cable entry behind the roof tile, and the roof tile can be placed back over the cable inlet without risk of cable damage. By pressing the cables into the slots of the cable feeder, cables remain securely attached and are protected during entry from outside to inside.

The cable entry is made of UV-resistant plastic, features high impact resistance and can withstand the temperature fluctuations that can occur on a roof. The small and lightweight size makes the product very handy and easy to transport.
