Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 35KV ARMOR-X® are armored cables for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, and where superior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 105°C for normal operation, 140°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.
