Price (Per FT.)
Loxarmor power cables are recommended as an economical alternate to a wire in conduit system. They are designed specifically for use on feeders and branch circuits in industrial power distribution systems. Loxarmor power cables may be installed in both exposed and concealed work, wet and dry location, direct burial in the earth, or embedded in concrete. They may be installed on metal racks, troughs, in cable trays or secured to supports not greater than 6 feet apart. Loxarmor power cables are also approved for Classes I and II, Division 2 and Class III, Divisions 1 and 2, hazardous locations - NEC Articles 501, 502 and 503.
2.4kV Non-Shielded cables discharge normally in service when spacing between phases is non-uniform or when phases are in close proximity to a grounded surface.
Okoguard Is Okonite's registered trade name for its exclusive ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR) base, thermosetting compound, whose optimum balance of electrical and physical properties is unequaled in other solid dielectrics. Okoguard insulation, with the distinctive red color and a totally integrated EPR system, provides the optimum balance of electrical and physical properties for long, problem free service.
The Type MV-90 conductors are assembled with fillers and a binder tape overall. One bare stranded copper grounding conductor is placed in one of the outer interstices. The interlocked armor provides good mechanical strength. For direct burial, embedment in concrete or for areas subjected to corrosive atmospheres, the Loxarmor is protected with a yellow Okoseal® (PVC) jacket.
