SPEC 46002

1/C CU 2.4kV NL-EPR SIMpull® PVC MV-90 CT Rated

Type MV-90 Single Conductor Copper, No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber (NL-EPR) SIMpull Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8 (Tinned Copper per ASTM B33 optional)
  2. Conductor Shield:Semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer
  3. Insulation:No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber (NL-EPR)
  4. Overall Jacket:Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 2.4KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, direct burial, 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. Rated at -35°C for cold bend. PVC jacket is made with SIM 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.
