|It is critical that for any electrical installation the correct type and grade for any given length of cable is used. For DC applications, the single core multi stranded copper cable is generally used. Common types of cable are:|
ripcord (generally used in solar and low current installations)
panel or single flex (generally used in medium current applications)
flexoweld or permoweld or permopower (generally used in high current applications).
When selecting a cable make sure that the cable can handle the maximum current that will be expected, and that the voltage drop due to the cable length does not exceed the application’s requirements.
