Applications and Features:

Southwire’s Halo-Flex™ 600V TC-ER-HL or 1000V 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. A gas/vapor-tight polymeric sheath is extruded over the core. Rated for use in Class I, II, or III, Division 1 & 2, Zone 1 & 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. HALO-FLEX ™ CPE jacket is made with patented SIM Technology. Cable can be installed in conduit without the aid of lubrication. PATENT www.patentsw.com
