  1. Conductor:7 strands class B compressed bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Insulation:Flame Retardant Cross Linked Polyethylene (FR-XLPE), 30 Mils thick for all cable sizes
  3. Filler:Polypropylene filler on cables with 5 or less conductors
  4. Binder:Polyester flat thread binder tape applied for cables with more than 5 conductors
  5. Shielding:5 mils tape shield
  6. Rip Cord:Rip cord for ease of jacket removal
  7. Overall Jacket:Thermoplastic Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE-TP)

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 600 Volt control 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. UL rated constructions can be used in Class I, II, and III, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501 and 502. UL rated constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC 336.10.
