Specification

12 XLP USE-2 RHH RHW-2 Copper Conductor Building Wire

Allowable Ampacity for Direct Burial: 20 ( 90°C Wet or Dry Conductor Temperature)

Allowable Ampacity in Duct: 20 ( 90°C Wet or Dry Conductor Temperature)

Applications:

Type RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 is a versatile building wire suitable for a variety of applications. The electrical wire is rated at 600V. It is used with conduit according to the specifications provided by NEC for lighting and power. Connecting photovoltaic modules is one of the typical applications of the electrical wire. RHH/RHW-2 is also used in aerial applications and raceways. The wire can be applied differently according to each specification.

As Type USE-2, the wire is used as an underground service entrance cable for direct burial. In this case, the temperatures should not exceed 90° C. The wire is used as RHH in dry locations with temperatures not exceeding 90°C. As RHW-2 or USE-2, the cable is used in wet and dry areas with temperatures not exceeding 90°C.

Construction:

Conductor:

RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 conductors are made of annealed soft copper. Compared to aluminum, this conductor performs better in smaller conduits.

Insulation:

The cable has an abrasion, heat, and moisture resistant cross-linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE). The insulation is durable in harsh conditions.

Specifications:

  • Size AWG: 12 
  • Weight per 1000 ft: 30 lbs
  • Outside Diameter: 0.179 inches
  • Number of Strands: 19
  • Insulation: XLPE
  • Insulation Thickness: .045


    Applications:

    Type RHH or RHW-2 or USE-2 conductors are used with conduit as specified in the National Electrical Code. When used as Type USE-2, conductor is suitable for use as underground service entrance cable for direct burial at conductor temperatures not to exceed 90° C. When used as RHH, conductor temperatures shall not exceed 90°C in dry locations. When used as RHW-2 or USE-2, conductor temperatures shall not exceed 90°C in wet or dry locations. Voltage rating for RHH o RHW-2 or USE-2 conductors is 600 volts.
