Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2000 Volt Type TC-ER VFD 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. For uses in Class I, II, and III, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC® Article 501 and 502. Constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC® Article 336.10.
