  10. Jacket:Black, mold cured, single layer, flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE). Alternate jacket colors available
  11. Reflective Stripe:Highly visible reflective stripe embedded into the outer jacket to increase safety and help prevent cable runover (optional, contact your sales representative for part number)

Applications and Features:

RHINOPOWERTM Type MP-GC mine power feeder cable is a heavy-duty power cable for use in stationary horizontal HV mine power distribution circuits, for permanent or semi-portable applications with power transmission in deep mines, surface mines, open pits, tunnels, in conduit or duct (not to exceed max rated voltage), and suitable for direct burial in wet or dry locations. For vertical drop requirements consult with factory application specialist.
