Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 15KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial when installed with a grounding conductor in close proximity that conforms to NEC section 311.36 and 250.4(A)(5), and where su- perior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 105°C for normal operation, 140°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Rated at -40°C for cold bend. ST1 (low smoke) Rated for sizes #2 AWG and larger. Rated for 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure. Thermoset Solonon® jacket (XL LSZH). Rated for Cable Tray Use sizes 1/0 & Larger
