Applications and Features:

Southwire’s IMSA 50-2 cable meets the requirements of International Municipal Signal Association IMSA 50-2 specification. Rated for use in traffic signal, traffic control systems, underground conduit and loop detector lead-in. IMSA 50-2 600 Volt series cables run from the junction box to the controller station The conductors are tinned annealed copper 19 strand and covered with an abrasion, sunlight and moisture resistant high molecular polyethylene insulation. The insulated conductors are twisted and wrapped with an overall aluminum mylar foil shield plus a drain wire. A ripcord is added under the black low density polyethylene jacket for ease of removal. A legend marker strip is under the jacket for clear identification. These cables are capable of operating continuously at a conductor temperature between -20°C and 75°C.

• Cable is manufactured by Southwire Company in their Waukegan, IL plant USA.
