...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compact stranded 8000 Series aluminum per ASTM B800 and ASTM B836
  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:320 Mils No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber (NLEPR) 133% Insulation Level,
  4. Insulation Shield:Stripable semi-conducting cross-linked copolymer
  5. Copper Tape Shield:Helically wrapped 5 mil copper tape with 25% overlap
  6. Overall Jacket:Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Applications and Features:

Southwire’s 25KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, 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. 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.
