Multi-Conductor CU 600V PVC THHN PVC Control Cable

Type TC-ER Control Cable 600Volt Copper Conductors, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) with nylon layer Insulation THHN Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Jacket, Control Cable Conductor Identification Method 1 Table 2

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:7 strands class B compressed bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8 for 14, 12, and 10 AWG cables. 26 strands class K bare copper per ASTM B3 and B174 for 16 AWG cables
  2. Insulation:Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) with nylon layer THHN, 19 Mils thick for 16, 14, 12 AWG cables and 24 Mils for 10 AWG cables, Type TFFN for 16 AWG cable and Type THHN or THWN for 14, 12 , 10 AWG cables
  3. Filler:Polypropylene filler on cables with 5 or less conductors
  4. Binder:Polyester flat thread binder tape applied for cables with more than 5 conductors
  5. Overall Jacket:Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt Type TC-ER control cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, aerial supported by a messenger, 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, and III, 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.
