1/0-4 W/GRND ALUMINUM METAL CLAD CABLE

1/0-4 W/GRND ALUMINUM METAL CLAD CABLE

Specification

Allowable Ampacity for 2-3 W/GRND ALUMINUM METAL CLAD CABLE at 75°C: 90 Amps

Applications:

Aluminum MC cable, or aluminum metal clad cable, is used under high ambient temperature in power distribution, particularly in feeder, branch, and service ones, in diverse purpose buildings. The MC cable is also used for diverse circuits, such as control, signal, power, and lighting ones, as well as installations, air-handling spaces, places of assembly, aerial applications, cable tray and raceways, IT equipment, and hazardous locations.

Also Known As:

Metal clad cable, mc cable, mc wires, cable metal clad, aluminum clad wire, mc feeder cable, electrical feeder cable, outdoor mc cable, electrical wire feeder, isolated ground mc cable, aluminum mc cable, weatherproof mc cable. 

Standards: 

  • UL 44, UL 1569 for type MC 

  • ICEA S – 95-658 

  • NEMA WC70 

  • Federal Spec A-A59544 (formerly J – C – 30B) 

  • IEEEE 1202 70,000 BTU vertical flame test

Construction

Conductors:

MC wires conductor is an 8000 series aluminum conductor. These conductors are also light, soft, and flexible, hence easy to work with, especially during installation.

Insulation:

The aluminum clad wire has a color-coded cross-linked polyethylene (XLP) insulation, which improves the service life of the cable. XLP is resistant to abrasion, heat, corrosive chemicals, moisture, and sunlight, making the cable withstand the punishing outdoor conditions. Due to color coding, it is easily identifiable and non-conducting, which keeps the user safe from shocks.

Armor:

The armor of the MC feeder cable is an overall aluminum interlocked armor.
