...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8 or ASTM B787
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE). Colors available upon request.

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2000 Volt power cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, aerial supported by a messenger, and where superior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C for normal operation in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions.
