Applications and Features:

APPLICATION
Southwire XHHW-2 copper conductors circuit sizes are primarily used in conduit, or other recognized raceways, and branch circuit wiring, as specified in the National Electrical Code. XHHW-2 copper conductors may be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C. Voltage rating for XHHW-2 conductors is 600 volts or 1000 volts. Suitable for use in Health Care Facilities per Section 517.160 of the National Electrical Code where a dielectric constant of less than 3.5 maybe specified.

    *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.
