Applications and Features:

Southwire’s Type TC-ER, PLTC, FPL, and NFPL Control Cable 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 in dry locations and 75°C in wet locations, 105°C for emergency overload, and 150°C for short circuit conditions. For uses in Class I, II, and III per NEC Article 725 and 760. Constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC 336.10. Oil and sunlight resistant.

    † Ampacities are based on Table 310.16 of the NEC 2020 Edition. Ampacities of insulated conductors rated up to and including 2000 Volts with not more than three current-carrying conductors in raceway, cable or direct buried based on ambient temperature of 30ºC (86ºF). Ampacities have been adjusted for more than three current-carrying conductors based on Table 310.15(C) 1.
