Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 15KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, and where su- perior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 105°C for normal operation, 140°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Rated at -25°C for cold bend. ST1 (low smoke) Rated for sizes 1/0 and larger. Rated for 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure. Thermoset Solonon® jacket (XL LSZH).
