Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 15KV Teck type cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, and where superior 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 -40°C for cold bend and cold impact and marked with "LTGG" when CSA listed or dual UL/CSA listed. For uses in Class I and II, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501 and 502.Rated for 1000 lbs./ FT maximum sidewall pressure. The ground is sized to equal 50% of the phase conductor. Silicone free cable.
