CU 2000V EPR RHH/RHW-2 LSZH TRACTION POWER CABLE

Traction Power Cable 2000 Volt Single Conductor Copper, Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation RHH/RHW-2 SOLO- NON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Class B compressed stranded bare copper per ASTM B3 B8 B33. Center strand embossed with “Southwire, Year, Plant” when required
  2. Binder Tape:Mylar Tape
  3. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Type RHH/RHW-2
  4. Overall Jacket:SOLONON® Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire 2000V EPR/SOLONON Traction Power Cable is suited for use in mass transit and general industry applications where flexibility, fire resistance, and low smoke generation are a concern. May be installed in wet or dry locations in cable trays or raceways. These cables are capable of operating continuously at a conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C for normal operation, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Resistance to moisture and most oils, acids, and alkalis with an overall durable LSZH XLPO jacket. Meets Flame Spread and Smoke Release requirements of NFPA 130. Alternate constructions available upon request.
