SPEC 44080

Southwire® RenewaFLEX™ Power Cables for Battery Energy Storage Systems

Single Conductor Copper 2000V XLPE insulation Type RHH/RHW-2 Flexible Power Cable.

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor: 6 - 4/0 AWG: Class K, Flexible stranded bare copper. 250 - 750 kcmil: Class I, Flexible stranded bare copper
  2. Insulation: Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) Type RHH/RHW-2

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2000 Volt power cables are suited for use in the internal wiring of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), in wet and dry locations, conduits, ducts, troughs, covered trays, 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, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Gasoline and Oil Resistant. For CT USE sizes 1/0 AWG and larger. Rated 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure.
