Application

Southwire’s Instrumentation Cables Type MC-HL per UL 1569 are suitable for installations as outlined in NEC Article 330 for process control and instrumentation, control circuits for operation and interconnection of protective and signaling devices and for general use in manufacturing, industrial and commercial distribution systems. Cables are constructed with 7-strand copper conductors insulated with nylon covered PVC. The paired conductors are colored black, white and alpha-numeric printed. Each pair has an aluminum polyester foil with 100% coverage and a tinned drain wire. The overall assembly is covered with an aluminum polyester foil with 100% coverage and a tinned drain wire. The cable is suited for use in cable trays, raceways, conduit, aerial (when supported with a messenger) and direct burial. The cable is rated for -50°C to 90°C and rated for Class I Div I hazardous locations. The inner jacket is black PVC with a nylon rip cord for easy removal. The outer jacket is black PVC
