Power Cable 600Volt Single Conductor Copper, Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulation XHHW-2 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) Type XHHW-2
  3. Overall Jacket:Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt power cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, aerial supported by a messenger, 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 in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. For uses in Class I, II, and III, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501 and 502.
