Multi-Conductor CU 600V EPR XHHW-2 CPE Control Cable Color Method 1 Table 1

Type TC-ER Control Cable 600Volt Copper Conductors, Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Insulation XHHW-2 Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Jacket, Control Cable Conductor Identification Method 1 Table 1

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:7 strands class B compressed tinned copper per ASTM B33 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) XHHW-2, 30 Mils thick for all cable sizes
  3. Overall Jacket:Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt Type TC-ER control 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. Constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC 336.10.
