Applications and Features:

Southwire’s Type TC-ER, PLTC, FPL, and NFPL Control Cable 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 in dry locations and 75°C in wet locations, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C For uses in Class I, II, and III per NEC Article 725 and 760. Constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC 336.10. Oil and sunlight resistant
