Application

Southwire’s 600 Volt control cables are suited for use in wet and dry areas, conduits, ducts, troughs, trays, direct burial, aerial supported by a messenger, and where superior electrical properties are desired. These cables are capable of operating continuously at the conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C for normal operation in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. UL rated construction can be used in Class I, II, and III, Division 2 hazardous locations per NEC Article 501 and 502. Only UL rated constructions with 3 or more conductors are listed for exposed runs (TC-ER) per NEC 336.10.
