Southwire’s American Mustang Type MP-GC cables are designed for use with stationary horizontal HV mine power distribution circuits. It can be use for permanent or semi-portable applications with power transmission in deep mines, strip mines, open pits, and tunnels. The cable can be used in wet or dry locations, installed in conduit or duct, (not to exceed maximum rated voltage), and suitable for direct burial applications.
American Mustang Type MP-GC cables have compact copper conductors covered by an extruded semi-conductive conductor shield. The conductors are insulated with a HV grade flame resistant thermosetting EPR 100% insulation that is ozone, oil, water, solvent, corrosive and abrasion. The insulation shield consist of a helically applied 3 mil copper tape with a 1/2 over lap. The cable has two bare copper ground wires and one yellow heavy duty EPR insulated ground check. Non-wicking filler are used to maintain a balanced round cross section and a tightcable assembly. A woven nylon polyester reinforcement binder is applied over the completed assembly for added core to jacket integrity. The outer jacket is made with a heavy duty flame resistant CPE that provides excellent resistance to UV, oil water solvents, corrosives, cuts, tears, and abrasions.
