SPEC 48403


600 Volt 90°C AREMA PART 10.3.16.



  1. Conductor:Solid Uncoated Copper
  2. Insulation:High Performance No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber NL-EPR
  3. Jacket:Polyethylene PE Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire 600V ECO Friendly No Lead EPR/PE Duplex Track Wire is suited for use in track circuits, signal operations, and car retarder and switch machine applications where flexibility, ease of termination, and stable service life are required. May be installed in wet or dry locations, conduit trays or troughs, or directly buried. These cables are capable of operating continu- ously 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.
