Managing cable for solar PV systems is now less difficult and time consuming with the new Ty-Rap® High-Performance Cable Edge Clips from Thomas & Betts. The patented Ty-Rap® High-Performance Cable Edge Clips can be installed without tools to manage up to four, 10AWG solar photovoltaic (PV) control cables, and removed easily without tools or cutting.
Ty-Rap® High-Performance Cable Edge Clips support control cables through panel rotation, environmental changes and vibration, and can be reused. They fit frames thicknesses ranging from 0.06 to 0.12 inches.
Ty-Rap® High-Performance Cable Edge Clips are available in two types of non-metallic polymers which reduce the need for grounding: Acetal (polyoxymethylene) or ultraviolet (UV)- and weather-resistant nylon 6-6. Acetal clips are weather resistant and proven to perform more than 20 years outdoors with operating temperatures ranging from minus 85 F to 194 F (minus 65 C to 90 C). UV- and weather-resistant Nylon 6-6 clips are heat stabilized to retain their strength and stability in hot solar PV applications with operating temperatures ranging from minus 40 F to 220 F (minus 40 C to 105 C).
Ty-Rap® High-Performance Cable Edge Clips are available in three configurations: 90 degrees for cable perpendicular to the frame, U style for cable parallel to the frame and W style for extra-capacity cable management in parallel applications.
