APPLICATIONS

 

Southwire Type XHHW-2 conductors are primarily used in conduit or recognized raceways for services, feeders, and branch circuit wiring as specified in the National Electrical Code. XHHW-2 conductors may be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C. Voltage rating for XHHW-2 conductors is 600 volts. Suitable for use in Health Care Facilities per section 517.160 of the NEC where a dielectric constant of 3.5 or less may be specified.  This product in sizes 500kcmil and larger is designed to be installed without the application of pulling lubricant.

 

SPECIFICATIONS

 

Southwire Type XHHW-2 conductors comply with the following:

 

 

CONSTRUCTION

Southwire Type XHHW-2 aluminum conductors are AlumaFlex  AA-8000 series aluminum alloy, compact stranded. The insulation is an abrasion, moisture and heat resistant thermoset cross-linked polyethylene. Conductor sizes AWG 2 and larger listed and marked sunlight resistant in black only.

  + Allowable ampacities shown are for general use as specified by the National Electrical Code 2011 Edition Section 310.15 and 240.4(D).

Unless the equipment is marked for use at higher temperatures the conductor ampacities 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 14 through 1 AWG conductors.

75 °C - When terminated to equipment for circuits rated over 100 amperes or marked for conductors larger than 1 AWG.

90 °C - XHHW wet or dry locations for ampacity adjustment purposes using NEC section 310.15 .

For dwelling ampacity use section 310.15(B)(7)

*For compact-stranded construction, the number of wires, as permitted by UL Standard 44 and ASTM B-801, may be reduced as follows:

19-Wire Constructions -18 Wires Minimum

37-Wire Constructions -35 Wires Minimum

61-Wire Constructions -58 Wires Minimum
