SPEC 45411

2000 Volt Copper Type PV

Single Conductor Photovoltaic (Type PV) Power Cable 2000 Volt Copper Conductor XLPE Insulation. Sizes 12 AWG through 1000 Kcmil. Heat, Moisture, Sunlight Resistant RoHS. 90°C

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE)

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2000 Volt 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.

Specifications:

  • ASTM B3 Standard Specification for Soft or Annealed Copper Wire
  • ASTM B8 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Copper Conductors
  • UL 44 Thermoset-Insulated Wires and Cables
  • UL 4703 Standard for Photovoltaic Wire
