...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded tinned copper per ASTM B33 and ASTM B8
  2. Binder Tape:Mylar Tape
  3. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Type RHH/RHW-2 USE-2
  4. Overall Jacket:Cross-Linked/Thermoset Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt power cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, 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. Sunlight and oil resistant.
