Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 15KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial when installed with a grounding conductor in close proximity that conforms to NEC section 311.36 and 250.4(A)(5), and where su- perior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 105°C for normal operation, 140°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Rated at -35°C for cold bend when UL listed. Rated at -25°C for cold bend and cold impact and marked with "LTDD" when CSA listed or dual UL/CSA listed. ST1 (low smoke) Rated for sizes 1/0 and larger. PVC jacket is made with SIM technology and has a coefficient of friction COF of 0.2. Cable can be installed in conduit without the aid of lubrication. Rated for 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure. 2x5 mils tape shield for higher short circuit withstand.

    * Ampacities are based on:
    * For Duct: Table 310.60(C)(78) Detail 1.
    * For Free Air: Table 310.60(C)(70).
    * Inductive impedance is based on non-ferrous conduit with one diameter spacing.
    * Sequence Impedance values are based on Rho Earth Resistivity: 100 Ohm-Meter/1000ft.
    * Capacitive Reactance is between Phase-to-Shield.
