...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Type XHHW-2
  3. Grounding Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8 (cable size 8 & 6 has insulated green ground)
  4. Filler:Paper filler (cable size 8 & 6 uses Polypropylene filler)
  5. Binder:Polyester flat thread binder tape for cable sizes larger than 2 AWG
  6. Overall Jacket:SOLONON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jacket

Applications and Features:

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