Applications and Features:

Southwire's 15kV HVTECK is a CSA armoured cable for industrial and commercial medium voltage applications. Rated FT4, -40°C, Hazardous Locations (HL) and 105°C for use in harsh Canadian environments. For installation in cable trays, duct banks, direct burial, troughs, continuous rigid cable supports and concrete encaseable. When used in a 3 phase system, the combination of each bond conductor from each single conductor cable provide a 100% bonded system to ground.
