Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt Type MC power 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 op- erating 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. The ground is sized to 50% of the phase conductor with three separate bare grounds one in each interstecie between condutors. The cable is made Silicone Free.
