...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare or tinned copper per ASTM B3, ASTM B8, ASTM B33
  2. Binder Tape:Mylar Tape
  3. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Type RHH/RHW-2
  4. Overall Jacket:Cross-linked/Thermoset Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE-TS) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2000 Volt power cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, 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. For uses in Class I, II, and III, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501 and 502.
