...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 and ASTM B8
  2. Conductor Shield:Semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer; A conductor separator is used for cable size larger than or equal to 500 Kcmil
  3. Insulation:220 Mils No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber (NL-EPR) 133% Insulation Level
  4. Insulation Shield:Stripable semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer
  5. Copper Tape Shield:Helically wrapped 2x5 mil copper tape with 25% overlap
  6. Overall Jacket:Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 15KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, 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 -35°C for cold bend. ST1 (low smoke) Rated for sizes 1/0 and larger. 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. 2x5 mils tape shield for higher short circuit withstand.
