Applications and Features:

APPLICATION
Southwire SIMpull THHN® Aluminum Wire & Cable with Alumaflex® Brand conductors are primarily used in conduit and cable trays for services, feeders and branch circuits in commercial or industrial applications as specified in the 2011 National Electrical Code. When used as Type THHN or T90 Nylon conductor is suitable for use in dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C. When used as Type THWN-2 or TWN75, conductor is suitable for use in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C or not to exceed 75°C when exposed to oil or coolant. Voltage for all applications is 600 volts. This cable should be installed without application of pulling lubricant.

    *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.
    * Inductive Reactance is based on non-ferrous conduit with one diameter spacing.
