Applications and Features:

Southwire’s IMSA 51-5 cable meets the requirements of International Municipal Signal Association IMSA 51-5 specification. Rated for use in traffic signal, traffic control systems, underground conduit and loop detector wire. IMSA 51-5 600 Volt series cables run from the switch buried in asphalt to the junction box. The conductors are bare annealed copper 19 strand and covered with an abrasion, sunlight and moisture resistant polyvinyl chloride with a nylon sheath. The conductor is housed in a polyvyinyl chloride or high molecular weight polyethylene tube. 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.
