CAB Solar Cable Management

CAB Products offer an efficient, cost effective solution to wire management in solar PV arrays. 

Proven Performance for over 40 Years in Electrical & Utility Industries Now with Integrated Grounding Option

CAB's Solar Cable Management system, now with Integrated Grounding, offers significant cost savings in engineering, installation and long term maintenance of solar power plants.

Initial material costs are much lower, plus labor costs are reduced during installation. In future years, CAB’s cabling system offers easy access for additional wiring, troubleshooting, maintenance or upgrading.

CAB Solar Cable Management delivers safe, strong and durable support for all types of solar wiring, and now CAB’s Integrated Grounding option saves time and money in both engineering and installation of solar PV power arrays.

CAB Solar Cable Management performs as a high quality mini-cable tray system for a fraction of the cost of cable tray. It offers exceptional reliability and lasts much longer than cable ties, especially in demanding and corrosive environments.

CAB Integrated Grounding eliminates the need to run a separate grounding conductor and grounding jumpers to all mid piers. The designincludes a custom engineered messenger wire, clamps and mid pier brackets.

CAB’s innovative multi-carrier hangers safely separate bundles of cable to meet NEC requirements. CAB’s PVC coating provides maximum safety and protection for cables. It is high dielectric grade, flame retardant, UV stabilized and very abrasion resistant. CAB’s heavy 80 mil (2mm) thick PVC coating has a dielectric breakdown strength of 400 volts per mil (.025mm).

CAB’s high performance coating is applied to 100% of the surface, which makes each hanger totally insulated, sparkproof, and extremely durable in corrosive environments. CAB’s Plastisol coating virtually eliminates slippage of hangers after installation. The improved gripping action assures uniform spacing which provides a safer cable support system. The coating is available in dark gray or high visibility safety orange.

CAB Hangers (pictured below) are open and ready to receive additional cables. Once loaded, hangers are easily closed and locked in place on messenger wire. No special tools needed.

CAB Solar Hangers open and ready for loading

CAB Cable Hangers are quick and easy to install. Cables can be loaded into hangers, and the hangers locked into place, or cables can be pulled long distances through previously installed hangers. This makes it simple to add additional cables in the future.

CAB Cable Rings and Saddles are offered in a wide variety of styles and configurations. Contact CAB for more information.

Bill Brooks Engineering White Paper

Cover of Brooks Engineering White Paper“Cable management is critical to the safety and longevity of nearly every Solar PV System. This is primarily due to the extensive use of exposed cables in the PV array.

“Using purpose-built products like CAB Cable Rings and Saddles for exposed cable management in a PV array is well substantiated by NEC and industry installation standards.

“Multiple hanger sections, such as those in various configurations of CAB Cable Rings and Saddles, create effective separation of conductors that allow for dc, ac, and communications cables to be supported with a single ring type.” – Bill Brooks, Brooks Engineering White Paper

CAB provides high quality, cost effective wire management solutions. We include here a September 2014 White Paper, published by Brooks Engineering, which reviews requirements of the 2014 updated NEC as it relates to CAB Cable Rings and Saddles.

Solar Engineer Testimonial:

“CAB Cable Rings and Saddles offer benefits over traditional conductor routing techniques. Our field installations demonstrate that CAB Cable rings provide improved installation time and robust support for the life of the system. We find increasing benefits in layouts with a larger number of parallel conductors.”
