Applications and Features:

HDFPC-DLO is a 2kV flexible power cable with a variety of possible applications such as but not limited to: Drilling rigs, railroad and transit car wiring, mining and other industrial equipment, and as flexible motor leads and wind turbine applications. The cable is suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, and where superior electrical properties are desired. HDFPC-DLO is oil, heat, flame, abrasion, and sunlight resistant. Approved for use per the NEC® as Type RHH/RHW-2 and per the CE Code as 2kV Type RW90. 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. Sizes 1/0 and Larger Rated For CT Use.

    * Ampacities in raceway are based upon 2023 NEC Table 310.16 and do not take into account the overcurrent protection limitations in NEC 240.4(D) 20 Amps for 12 AWG CU, and 30 Amps for 10 AWG CU (independent of the conductor temperature rating and stranding). Also, see NEC sections 310.15 and 110.14(C) for additional requirements. Ampacities for non-standard sizes were extrapolated
    * Ampacities in air are based upon 2023 NEC Table 310.17. Ampacities for non-standard sizes were extrapolated
    * Inductive Reactance is based on non-ferrous conduit with one diameter spacing.
    * #12 and #10 AWG are not approved for CSA RW90
