CU 2000V EPR RHH/RHW-2 LSZH TRACTION POWER CABLE

Traction Power Cable 2000 Volt Single Conductor Copper, Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation RHH/RHW-2 SOLO- NON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 B8 B33. Center strand embossed with “Southwire, Year, Plant” when required
  2. Binder Tape:Mylar Tape
  3. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Type RHH/RHW-2
  4. Overall Jacket:SOLONON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire 2000V EPR/SOLONON Traction Power Cable is suited for use in mass transit and general industry applications where flexibility, fire resistance, and low smoke generation are a concern. May be installed in wet or dry locations in cable trays or raceways. These cables are capable of operating continuously at a conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C for normal operation, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Resistance to moisture and most oils, acids, and alkalis with an overall durable LSZH XLPO jacket. Alternate constructions available upon request.
