Construction

  • Southwire style SEU 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. Type SEU cable has two phase conductors surrounded by a concentric neutral.
