CU 2000V EPR/LSZH RW90 Traction Cable

2000 Volt Single Conductor Copper, No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber (NLEPR) insulation RW90 SOLONON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Stranded bare or tinned copper per ASTM B3 or B33. 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:SOLONON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire 2000V EPR/SOLONON Power 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 LSZH XLPO jacket. Meets Flame Spread and Smoke Release requirements of NFPA 130. Alternate constructions available upon request.
