Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 15KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, aerially 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 105°C for normal operation, 140°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Rated at -35°C for cold bend. For uses in Class I and II, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501 and 502.Rated for 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure.
