Applications and Features:

Southwire’s Type TC-ER, PLTC, FPL, and NFPL Control Cable are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, aerial supported by a messenger and where superior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C in dry locations and 75°C in wet locations, 105°C for emergency overload, and 150°C for short circuit conditions. For uses in Class I, II, and III per NEC Article 725 and 760. Constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC 336.10. Oil and sunlight resistant.

    * 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.
    * Ampacities have been adjusted for more than Three Current-Carrying Conductors.
