SPEC 25080

CU 2000V NLEPR/CPE RW90 Traction Cable

2000 Volt Single Conductor Copper, No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber(NL-EPR) insulation RW90 Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Compressed stranded bare or tinned copper per ASTM B3 or B33 and B8. Center strand embossed with “Southwire, Year, Plant” when required
  2. Binder Tape:Mylar Tape
  3. Insulation:No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Type RW90
  4. Overall Jacket:Thermoset Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire 2000V EPR/CPE Cable is suited for use in mass transit and general industry applications where flexibility, fire resistance, and low smoke generation are a concern. May be installed in wet or dry locations in cable trays or raceways. These cables are capable of operating continuously at a conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C for normal operation, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Resistance to moisture and most oils, acids, and alkalis with an overall durable thermoset CPE jacket. Alternate constructions available upon request.
