PVC/Nylon Copper Instrumentation Cable Individual and Overall Shield

PVC/Nylon Copper Instrumentation Cable

Individual and Overall Shield

The 600 V Instrumentation Cables are listed as Type TC per UL 1277. These cables are suitable for installations as outlined in NEC 725 and can be used in Accordance with NEC 340. These cables may be installed in wet or dry locations; in cable trays, raceways and pen air; and are suitable for exposure to weather, direct burial and for Class I, Div. 2.

Conductors are insulated with color-coded PVC and a clear nylon insulation jacket, then twisted with a tin/copper drain wire. Next, an Aluminum Mylar tape is wrapped around the individual pairs, followed by another drain and shield. Final layer of overall PVC jacket is applied last. The cable is UL listed Subject 1277  (TC) 600V applications.
