CONSTRUCTION

 

Southwire Armorlite® Type MC Cable - "PVC Jacketed" is constructed with soft-drawn, copper Type THHN/THWN conductors rated 90°C dry/ 75°C wet, and a green insulated grounding conductor.  The conductors are cabled together and a binder tape is wrapped around the assembly.  Aluminum interlocking armor is applied over the assembly.  A black flame retardant PVC jacket is applied over the armor.  The jacket is available in other colors upon request subject to economic order quantites.  The standard PVC Jacket will not meet "Limited Smoke" or "LS" Rating. An optional SOLONON Jacket can be provided for "LS" Rating.

Note: Ampacities are based on Table 310.16 of the NEC, 2011 Edition.

‡Allowable ampacities shown are for general use as specified by the National Electrical Code, 2011 Edition, Section 310.15.

If the equipment is marked for use at higher temperatures, the conductor ampacity shall be limited to the following per NEC 110.14(C).
60°C - When terminated to equipment for circuits rated 100 amperes or less or marked for size 14 through 1 AWG conductors.
75°C - When terminated to equipment for circuits rated over 100 amperes or marked for conductors larger than size 1 AWG.
90°C - For ampacity derating purposes.

Per NEC 310.15(B)(2)(a), the ampacity of 4/C cables shall be reduced by a factor of 0.80 when the neutral is considered a current-carrying conductor.

*Circuit sizes 12 AWG and 10 AWG also available as stranded conductors.
+ Available in sizes up to 750 kcmil.
