Applications and Features:

Southwire’s shielded flexible machine tray control cables 600/1000 Volt conform to NFPA 79 and 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 75°C in wet locations and 90°C in dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. For uses in Class I, II, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC® Article 501 and 502. Constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC® 336.10. Southwire’s shielded flexible machine tray cable is ideal for use in for use in CNC machines, grinding, cutting, metal forming, buffing, bottling equipment, conveyors, processing & packaging equipment, assembly lines, control panels, food and bever- age, oil sands, plant expansion, wind energy and data centers. Multiple approvals for multiple applications. Cable is rated for -40°C cold impact. Two conductor cables contain no green/yellow ground.
