...

Construction:

  1. Conductor: 8 AWG - 4/0 AWG: Class K, Flexible Stranded, Softdrawn Tinned Copper. 250 KCMIL - 750 KCMIL; Class I, Flexible Concentric Ropelay Stranded, Softdrawn Tinned Copper
  2. Insulation: Black, Sunlight, Gas & Oil Resistant Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE)

Applications and Features:

Southwire Type XHHW-2 & RW90 conductors are primarily used in conduit, cable tray or other recognized raceways for service, feeders, and branch circuit wiring as specified in the National Electric Code (NEC) and the Canadian Electrical Code (CE Code). XHHW-2 & RW90 conductors may be used at conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C for normal operation in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Voltage rating for XHHW-2 conductors is 600 volts and 1000 volts. Voltage rating for RW90 conductors is 600 volts. Flexible tinned copper stranding allows for ease of installation in locations with limited space, as well as including for use in electrical equipment for industrial facilities with harsh chemical environments, telecommunications applications and data centers.
