SPEC 45412

2000 Volt High Flex Copper Type PV

Single Conductor Photovoltaic (Type PV) Power Cable 2000 Volt Copper Conductor XLPE Insulation. Heat, Moisture, Sunlight Resistant RoHS. 90°C

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Flexible stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B173 or flexible tinned copper per ASTM B33.
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE).

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2000 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 90°C for normal operation in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions.
