Frequently Asked Questions - Aluminium Conductor MC Cable 

 

What is the jacketed Aluminum Conductor MC Cable used for?

There are many uses for this cable and it is a widely preferred choice when it comes to hard core industrial, commercial and even residential buildings.  This cable is mainly used for direct burial applications, even if it happens to be in concrete. It can also be used for exposed installations or an aerial cable on a messenger.  You can also use it for installation in cable tray and raceways.

 

What are the advantages of usingjacketed Aluminum Conductor MC Cable?

It can withstand exposure to chlorides, alkalis, acids and cinder fills. So it can be used in industries where such heavy duty cables are required in hazardous conditions.


What is the Aluminum Conductor of the MC Cable made of?

As Aluminum is prone to oxidization in its purest form, it is rarely used for industrial purposes. Hence, when the word “aluminum” is mentioned, it is always in some form of alloy. The alloy that is most preferred and used for cables are 8000 series aluminum alloys.


Is the jacketed Aluminium Conductor MC Cable better than the non-jacketed version?

Both the jacketed and non-jacketed cables can be used for similar purposes. However, the jacketed cable is preferred for use in wet locations and can even be in direct burial or in an underground conduit. Moreover, the jacket is made of a special type of material called polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which is resistant to sunlight, heat and moisture.


What are the standards that the Aluminium Conductor MC Cable meets?

The Aluminum conductor MC cables are made in accordance with industry standards such as the following:

  • UL 44, UL 83, UL 1685 and UL 1569 which is for Type MC
  • Federal Spec A-A59544
  • NEMA WC70
  • Vertical Cable Tray Flame Test – passed by both jacketed and non-jacketed cables
