...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Solid Uncoated Copper
  2. Insulation:High Performance No Lead Ethylene Propylene Rubber NL-EPR
  3. Fillers:Non-Wicking Flame Retardant Fillers with 8 mil Cushioning Tape
  4. Armor:Helically Wrapped 7 mils Cu 194 Alloy Tape
  5. Rip Chord:Rip Chord for Ease of Jacket Removal
  6. Jacket:Polyethylene PE Jacket

Applications and Features:

Southwire 600V ECO Friendly No Lead EPR/PE Armored Underground Signal Cable is suited for use in vital railroad signal cir- cuit applications where crush resistance, termite and rodent protection, and secure service life are a concern. May be installed in wet or dry locations. 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.
