Application

RHINOPOWERTM Type MP-GC mine power feeder cable is a heavy-duty power cable for use in stationary horizontal HV mine power distribution circuits, for permanent or semi-portable applications with power transmission in deep mines, surface mines, open pits, tunnels, in conduit or duct (not to exceed max rated voltage), and suitable for direct burial in wet or dry locations. For vertical drop requirements consult with factory application specialist.
