This lead wire conductor is a stranded piece enhanced with tinned copper. The set-up is put together in line with the specifications of ASTM B-33. Stranding makes the cable very flexible so that it can be folded for easy transportation and bent to fit into ducts during installation.


The hook up cable has XLPE insulation, which is flexible but very tough, made of a complex chain of molecules forming a sturdy polymer. It can withstand a wide range of temperatures, is resistant to chemicals and UV light deformations, water-tight, and easy to cut.
