Application
These cables are suitable for use installed in cable trays, direct burial, and raceways, or when supported by a messenger wire. Voltage ratings not to exceeding 600 volts and conductor temperatures not to exceed 90°C dry or 90°C wet. Cables pass the UL 1277 Vertical Tray Flame Test and the IEEE 1202/FT4 flame test.

Construction
Conductor: Stranded Bare Annealed Copper made in Accordance with ASTM B-3, B-8, and B-174
Primary Insulation: The conductors are UL Type XHHW-2 per UL 44

#16 AWG Copper Control Wire: The insulation shall be colored as follows: 1 Black, 1 Red, 1Yellow, 1 Yellow/Black, 1 Blue, 1 White
#3 AWG Generator Wires: 1 Black, 1 Red, 1 White
#6 Ground Wire: 1
Cable Assembly: The insulated conductors are cabled together with fillers as necessary, and overall binder tape
Overall Jacket: A flame resistant and sunlight resistant PVC jacket is applied to the overall construction, 3 orange stripes
Cable Identification: Type: Surface print on jacket

Specifications
Type: Power Composite Installation Cable - TC-ER (Exposed Run)

  • 600 Volts, 90°C dry, 90° wet
