Application

Southwire’s 5KV cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, and where superior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 105°C for normal operation, 140°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Rated at -25°C for cold bend. ST1 (low smoke) Rated for sizes 1/0 and larger. Rated for 1000 lbs./FT maximum sidewall pressure.
