...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Conductors are stranded, compressed 1350-H16/H26 (3/4 Hard) aluminum
  2. Insulation:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE). LLDPE or HDPE based polymers
  3. Neutral:Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) with three Yellow Extruded Stripes (YES)
  4. PowerGlide:Engineered spiral-wrapped glide wire that reduces installation friction and maintains bundle integrity

Applications and Features:

Conductors are stranded, compressed 1350-H16/H26 (3/4 Hard) aluminum, insulated with cross-linked polyethylene. Neutrals are identified by three yellow extruded stripes "YES". Cables with “YES” neutrals have sequential footage markers. Conductors are durably surface printed for identification. Two-phase conductors and one neutral conductor are cabled together to produce the triplex cable configuration. Twisted conductors are bound with an engineered spiral-wrapped glide wire that reduces installation friction and maintains bundle integrity. 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

    Notes:
    1. Inductive reactance assumes cables are cradled in conduit, and the neutral is carrying no current.
    2. Triple parallel inductive reactance calculation assumes the phase conductors are adjacent to one another.
    3. Conductors assumed to be reverse lay stranded, compact construction.
    4. Phase spacing assumes cables are touching.
    5. Resistances shown are for the Phase conductors only.
    6. Ampacity based on 90°C conductor temperature, 20°C ambient, RHO 90, 100% load factor.
