APPLICATIONS 

Southwire Type SE, service entrance cable is used to convey power from the service drop to the meter base and from the meter base to the distribution panelboard; however, it may be used in all applications where Type SE cable is permitted. SE may be used in wet or dry above ground locations at temperatures not to exceed 90° C. The voltage rating is 600 volts.

 

SPECIFICATIONS 

Southwire Type SE cable complies with :

 

CONSTRUCTION 

Southwire Type SE cable is constructed with AlumaFlex AA-8000 series aluminum alloy, compact stranded conductors. The conductors are covered with a sunlight resistant Type XHHW-2 or Type THHN/THWN-2 insulation. A reinforcement tape is wrapped around the conductors for added strength and conformity. A gray sunlight resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) outer jacket covers the entire assembly. Style SEU cable has two phase conductors surrounded by a concentric neutral while the SER style has two, three or four phase conductors and a bare neutral. 

 

Southwire Style SER Cable's phase conductors are identified by a colored stripe on the insulation.

3 conductor- Black and Black with Red Stripe

4 conductor- Black, Black with White Stripe, and Black with Red Stripe

5 conductor- Black, Black with White Stripe, Black with Red Stripe and Black with Blue Stripe

Table values reflect XHHW-2 conductors. +Allowable Ampacities:
Allowable ampacities shown are for general use as specified by the National Electrical Code, 2011 Edition, Section 310.15.
60° C - When terminated to equipment for circuits rated 100 amperes or less or marked for 14 through 1 AWG conductors. See NEC Article 338.10(B)(4).
75° C - When terminated to equipment for circuits rated over 100 amperes or marked for conductors larger than 1 AWG. May not apply, see NEC Article 338.10(B)(4).
90° C - Wet or dry locations. For ampacity derating purposes.
Dwelling - For units, conductors shall be permitted at listed ampacities as 120/240-volt, 3-wire, single-phase services and feeders per NEC Article 310.15.
*For compact-stranded construction, the number of wires, as permitted by UL Standard 83, UL Standard 854, and ASTM B-801, may be reduced as follows:
19-Wire Constructions - 18 Wires Minimum
