MC Cable is approved for use in many applications including direct burial, use in cable tray and outdoor exposure. The PVC jacket is free of harmful heavy metals in compliance with RoHS, Directive 2002/95/EC.
Stranded soft drawn copper conductor. Flame retardant thermoset crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation Type XHHW-2 conductors rated for wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90ºC. Grounding is one bare copper stranded conductor, except for sizes 14 AWG through 1 AWG contain a green insulated grounding conductor. Phase and grounding conductors are cabled together with binder tape. Aluminum interlocked armor, applied over the binder tape and a longitudinal marker tape, for ID, when unjacketed. Black sunlight resistant and flame retardant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compound jacket. Special constructions available upon request.
Ampacities are based on Table 310.15(B)(16) of the NEC.
*Ampacities shown are for general use as specified by the NEC, Section 310.15. For equipment marked for use at higher temperatures, the conductor ampacity shall be limited to the following per NEC 110.14(C):
60°C when terminated to equipment for circuits rated 100 amperes or less or marked for size 14 AWG through 1 AWG conductor.
75°C when terminated to equipment for circuits rated over 100 amperes or marked for conductors larger than 1 AWG.
90°C for ampacity derating purposes.
When the neutral is considered current-carrying conductor, the ampacity of 4/C cables shall be reduced by a factor of 0.80 per NEC 310.15(B)(2)(a). The above data is approximate and subject to normal manufacturing tolerances.
