SPEC 10005

Copper SIMpull XHHW-2® / RW90

Power Cable 600 or 1000 Volt Single Conductor Copper, Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) with SIMpull technology for easier pulling.

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) with SIMpull technology

Applications and Features:

APPLICATION
Southwire® SIMpull XHHW-2® copper conductors are primarily used in conduit, cable tray or other recognized raceways for services, feeders, and branch circuit wiring, as specified in the National Electrical Code. SIMpull XHHW-2® copper conductors may be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C. Voltage rating for XHHW-2 conductors is 600 volts or 1000 volts for all sizes. Suitable for use in Health Care Facilities per Section 517.160 of the National Electrical Code where a dielectric constant of less than 3.5 maybe specified. This cable is designed to be installed without the application of pulling lubricant.
Note: Simpull technology on Sizes # 8 and Larger. Non-Simpull technology on #14, #12, #10.

    *Ampacities based upon 2023 NEC Table 310.16 and do not take into account the overcurrent protection limitations in NEC 240.4(D) of 15 Amps for 14 AWG CU, 20 Amps for 12 AWG CU, and 30 Amps for 10 AWG CU (independent of the conductor temperature rating and stranding if size is present in table). Also, see NEC sections 310.15 and 110.14(C) for additional requirements.
    * Inductive Reactance is based on non-ferrous conduit with one diameter spacing.
