  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) XHHW-2, 30 Mils thick for all cable sizes
  3. Grounding Conductor:Class B compressed stranded copper with green insulation
  4. Filler:Polypropylene filler on cables with 5 or less conductors
  5. Binder:Polyester flat thread binder tape applied for cables with more than 5 conductors
  6. Overall Jacket:Thermoplastic Chlorinated Polyethylene CPE

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 90°C for normal operation in wet and 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.
