APPLICATIONS

 

Used for secondary distribution and underground service at 600 volts or less, either direct burial or in ducts. 

 

SPECIFICATIONS

 

Southwire's triplex or paralleled 600 volt secondary UD cable meets or exceeds the following applicable ASTM specifications: 

 

 

Southwire's triplex 600 volt secondary UD cable meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of ICEA S-105-692 for cross-linked polyethylene insulated conductors and UL Standard 854 for Type USE-2. 

 

 

CONSTRUCTION

 

Conductors are stranded, compressed 1350-H19, H16, or H26 aluminum, insulated with vulcanized interlinked polyethylene (VIP1), Southwire's cross-linked polyethylene. Neutrals are triple yellow extruded stripe. Cables with "YES" neutrals have sequential footage markers. Conductors are durably surface printed for identification. Two phase conductors and one neutral conductor are cabled together to produce the triplex cable configuration. Conductors are also available paralleled.

+Ampacity: 90C conductor temperature, 20C ambient, RHO 90, 100% load factor for three conductor triplex with neutral carrying only unbalanced load. Technical data for cable with solid black neutral is identical to yellow extruded stripe data except for "YES" suffix to code word. Also available in paralleled construction. For NEC Applications, use NEC Table 310.16 Ampacities.
