Tray Cable XHHW-2 FREP-CPE E-2 600V Cable
Tray XHHW Cable is designed for use in power distribution channels of voltages not exceeding 600 volts. It is a type of instrumentation cable which is insulated and jacketed for maximum chemical and mechanical protection. This cable has a long service life and can withstand the harsh outdoor environmental conditions. The cable is printed with numbers and color coded for easy identification.
The cable measures 12 AWG (American Wire Gauge) and ten feet long. Tray Cable XHHW is made of stranded annealed and tinned copper conductors as per the ASTM B33. Annealing is the process of heating the conductors and letting them cool, to make them soft and malleable. It improves the flexibility aspect of this cable. Flexible Tray XHHW Cable is easier to install than stiff and rigid cables. Tinning on the hand involves coating the copper conductors with a thin layer of tin metal through the process of electrolysis; where electric current is passed through the electrolyte and the conductors. Tinned conductors are corrosive resistant and will withstand corrosive industrial chemicals. It also makes the conductors smooth and resistant to friction build ups.
This cable is tested and approved to meet the following g requirements:
• IEEE 1202
• Underwriters Laboratory (UL) 1581 VW-1
• UL 44, Type XHHW-2
• UL 1277 Type TC-ER
The Tray XHHW Cable is insulated with an Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR). EPR polymer has a high dielectric strength and a wide thermal range of -550C to 1500C. Ethylene Polypropylene Rubber is soft and flexible and will enhance installation. It is non-conducting and ensures that the safety of the user and the cable is not infringed. The EPR will protect the user from electric shocks and creates a barrier between the conductors to prevent any contacts that may build up between them.
It is jacketed with a thermoplastic chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) which is lead free. This makes it flame retardant and environmental friendly, as it evolves less smoke in the surrounding. CPE is also tough enough to withstand mechanical damages like abrasion.
This cable is used in raceway systems to distribute 600 volts to:
• Burglar alarms
• Cash registers
• Control systems
• Intercom wiring
• Petrochemical facilities
• Industrial control system
