Applications and Features:

Southwire’s Halo-Flex™ 600 or 1000 Volt Type TC-ER-HL 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. A gas/vapor-tight polymeric sheath is exturded over the core. For uses in Class I, II, and III, Division 1 and 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501, 502, and 503. Listed for exposed runs (TC-ER-HL) per NEC 336.10. - 40°C cold bend and cold impact. “Note: -HL rating is restricted to a maximum overall diameter of 1” and 600 Volt per UL and the NEC.
