Construction

"Southwire Type SE cable is constructed with Alumaflex® AA-8000 series aluminum alloy, compacted 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
