Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt Type MC-HL ARMOR-X® 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, 250°C for short circuit conditions, and -50°C for cold bend. For uses in Class I, II, and III, Division 1 and 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501, 502, and 503. Suitable for VFD application.
