1/C AL 600 or 1000V XLPE XHHW-2 Power Cable

Power Cable 600 or 1000 Volt Single Conductor Aluminum, Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulation XHHW-2

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compact stranded 8000 Series aluminum per ASTM B800 and ASTM B836
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) Type XHHW-2

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 or 1000 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.
