SPEC 46031

1/C CU 2.4kV XLPE

Type MV-90 Dry Single Conductor Copper, Non-Shielded Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE)

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Conductor Shield:Semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer
  3. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE)

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2.4KV XLPE cables are suited for use in dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays 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, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Rated at -35°C for cold bend. Rated for 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure.

Specifications:

  • ASTM B3 Standard Specification for Soft or Annealed Copper Wire
  • ASTM B8 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Copper Conductors
  • UL 1072 Medium-Voltage Power Cables
  • ICEA S-96-659 (NEMA WC 71) 2001-5000 V Nonshielded Cables
  • FAA L-824 C Specification Approved by (AC 150/5345-53D), (AC 150/5345-7F)
