SPEC 10040

Copper Service Entrance (SE) Cable Type SEU. XHHW-2

Service Entrance Cable, Type SE. Style SEU. Service Entrance Cable, 600 Volt. Individual Conductors Rated XHHW-2. Jacket and Individual Conductors Sunlight Resistant.

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:All phases are insulated with Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) Type XHHW-2
  3. Neutral:Bare soft annealed neutral
  4. Binder:Reinforcement binder
  5. Jacket:Gray Polyvinyl Chloride PVC jacket. Sunlight resistant.

Applications and Features:

Southwire® Type SE, service entrance cable is primarily used to convey power from the service drop to the meter base and from the meter base to the distribution panelboard; however, the cable may be used in all applications where Type SE cable is permitted. SEU may be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C. Voltage rating is 600 volts. SE cables are not permitted underground, with or without a raceway, per NEC 338.12(A)(2).

    *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.
