...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:7 strands class B compressed bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) Type XHHW-2 for cables 14 AWG or larger, 30 Mils thick for all cable sizes
  3. Filler:Polypropylene filler on cables with 5 or less conductors
  4. Binder:Polyester flat thread binder tape applied for cables with more than 5 conductors
  5. Overall Jacket:Thermoplastic SOLONON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH-TP) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt Type TC-ER control 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 336.10. 16 AWG wire is made in accordance with UL 66: Fixture Wire.

    † 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.
