...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed Aluminum ASTM 1350 ¾ hard H16/H26; Conductor moisture block (optional)
  2. Conductor Shield:Conventional Semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer; Supersmooth conductor shield optional; A conductor tape is used for cable size larger than or equal to 1500 Kcmil
  3. Insulation:175 Mils Tree Retardant Cross Linked Polyethylene 100% insulation level
  4. Insulation Shield:Strippable semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer
  5. Concentric Neutral:Helically applied soft drawn bare copper full concentric neutral
  6. Overall Jacket:Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Jacket with PowerGlide® Technology. Black with red extruded stripes

Applications and Features:

Southwire's 15kV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, sunlight, 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. 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. (LLDPE) jacket made with PowerGlide® Technology and has a coefficient of friction COF of 0.2. Cable can be installed in conduit without the aid of lubrication. Rated for 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure.
