Specification

12 XHHW Copper Building Wire

Allowable Ampacity for 12 XHHW Copper Building Wire in Direct Burial: 30

Allowable Ampacity 12 XHHW Copper Building Wire in Duct: 30

Applications:

XHHW is a multi-purpose wire with cross-linked high heat water-resistant insulation. The most common applications include raceways for branch circuit wiring, conduits, services, and feeders. It is also used as a building wire. XHHW is suitable for industrial applications due to its toughness and excellent resistance to chemicals. The cable is suitable for temperatures up to 90°C, with a voltage rating of 600 volts

Also Known As: 

12 XHHW Copper Building Wire, 12 XHHW Cable, 12 XHHW Direct Burial Cable, 12 XHHW Service Wire, 12 XHHW Copper Wire.

Construction:

Conductor:

The cable has an annealed bare copper conductor (solid or concentrically stranded). The conductor has excellent electrical conductivity and excellent resistance to moisture. The conductor also has excellent resistance to compression, pressure, and heat.

Insulation:

The cable is insulated with a cross-linked polyethylene jacket (XLPE) that serves as a protective armor to the conductors. It is flame-retardant and resistant to abrasion, corrosion, moisture, dryness, chemicals, and heat. 

Standards:

  • Ul Standard 493 for Thermoplastic-Insulated Underground Feeder and Branch Circuit Cables
  • For use in interior wiring in wet, dry or corrosive locations under-recognized wiring methods of the National Electrical Code (NEC)
  • Acceptable to be installed as a Non-Metallic Sheathed Cable following NEC Article 339-3 (4)
  • Acceptable for use per NEC Articles 300-4(b) and 339
  • ASTM - B3 and B-8
  • UL Standard 83
  • Federal Specification A-A-59544
  • RoHS/ REACH

Specifications:

  • Size AWG: 12
  • Weight per 1,000 ft: 27 lbs
  • Outside Diameter: 0.160 inches
  • Number of Strands: 7
  • Jacket: XLPE
  • Insulation Thickness: 30 mils


    Applications:
    • Type XHHW conductors are primarily used in conduit or other recognized raceways for services, feeders, and branch circuit wiring, as specified in the National Electrical Code 1. 
    • XHHW conductors may be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C.
    • Voltage rating for XHHW conductors is 600 volts.

    Standards:

    Type XHHW conductors meet or exceed UL Standard 44, Federal Specification A-A-59544, and requirements of the National Electrical Code. Type XHHW meets and exceeds all construction requirements of ICEA S-95-658 (NEMA WC 70) - Nonshielded 0 - 2 kV Cables, with testing frequencies based on UL requirements, Other part ID is HW002 01201.
