...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:7 strands class B compressed bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Polyethylene (PE) and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
  3. Filler:Polypropylene filler on cables with 5 or less conductors
  4. Binder:Polyester flat thread binder tape applied for cables with more than 5 conductors
  5. Rip Cord:Rip cord for ease of jacket removal
  6. Overall Jacket:Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt power cables 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 75°C for normal operation in wet and dry locations, 90°C for emergency overload, and 150°C for short circuit conditions.

    * 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 stock numbers containing more than Three Current-Carrying Conductors.
