SPEC 83001

Single 600 Volt USE-2 Aluminum Underground Service Entrance

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Conductors are stranded, compressed 1350-H16/H26 (3/4 Hard) aluminum
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) Type USE-2

Applications and Features:

Conductors are stranded, compressed 1350-H16/H26 (3/4 Hard) aluminum, insulated with cross-linked polyethylene UL listed as Type USE-2 . 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.

Specifications:

  • ASTM B231 Standard Specification for Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminum 1350 Conductors
  • ASTM B901 Standard Specification for Compressed Round Stranded Aluminum Conductors Using Single Input Wire Construction. (The number of strands for both phase and neutral may differ)
  • UL 854 Service Entrance Cable
  • ICEA S-105-692 Standard For 600 Volt Single Layer Thermoset Insulated Utility Underground Distribution Cables
