C-L-X Type MC cables with the impervious, continuous, corrugated aluminum sheath are recommended as an economical alternate to a wire in conduit system. They are authorized for use on services, feeders and branch circuits for power, lighting, control and signaling circuits in accordance with Articles 330 and 725 of the NEC.
C-L-X Type MC-HL cables may be installed indoors or outdoors, in wet or dry locations, as open runs of cable secured to supports spaced not more than six feet apart, in cable tray, as aerial cable on a messenger, in any approved raceway, direct burial, or encased in concrete. C-L-X Type MC-HL cables are also approved for Classes I, II, and III Division 1 and 2 and Class I,Zones 1 and 2 hazardous locations — NEC Articles 501, 502, and 503 and UL 2225.
X-Olene® is Okonite's trade name for its chemically cross-linked polyethylene, with high dielectric strength.
Conductors are color coded using base colors and tracers in accordance with the Conductor Identification Table on the back of this Data Sheet.
Assembly and Coverings
The individual conductors are cabled together with non-hygroscopic fillers and a binder tape overall. The C-L-X sheath exceeds the grounding conductor requirements of Table 250.122 of the NEC and UL 1569. The impervious, continuous, corrugated aluminum C-L-X sheath provides complete protection against moisture, liquids and gases and has excellent mechanical strength. For direct burial in the ground, embedment in concrete, or for areas subjectedto corrosive atmospheres, the C-L-X sheath is protected with a low temperature black Okoseal® (PVC) jacket.
