Flexible Copper conductors, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) insulation, Single Layer Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Jacket

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Bare, soft drawn, annealed, flexible, rope-lay stranded copper per ASTM B3/B172
  2. Separator Tape:Non-conducting tape applied between the conductor and insulation to facilitate stripping
  3. Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Dien Monomer (EPDM). Color coded black, white, blue, red for sizes #4/0 and smaller and black, white, red, orange for sizes over 250 kcmil
  4. Ground Conductors:Four insulated, bare, soft drawn, annealed, rope stranded, flexible lay copper per ASTM B3/B172
  5. Fillers:Paper fillers applied as needed to round the cable core
  6. Tape:Reinforcing tape applied over the cabled core for improved mechanical integrity and ease of stripping
  7. Reinforcement Binder:Reinforcing twine applied over the tapped core
  8. Jacket:Black, flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE)

    * Inductive reactance based three current-carrying conductors.
    † Ampacity based on NEC 400.5(A)(2) and is for a single isolated cable in air operated at an ambient temperature of 30°C connected to utilization equipment so that only three conductors are current-carrying. If 4 conductors are current-carrying, derate by 0.80 per NEC Table 400.5(A)(3)
