TC - 600 V - PVC/Nylon Insulated
Instrumentation TC, 600 V, PVC/Nylon Insulated, 90°C, Unshielded Paris or Triads with Overall Shield, Shielded Pairs or Triads with Overall Shield - LEAD FREE, Type TC - UL 1277
StandardsNational : UL 1277
The 600 V Instrumentation Cables are listed as Type TC per UL 1277. These cables are suitable for installations as outlined in NEC Article 336. 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 (also Zone 2) and Class II, Div. 2 hazardous locations per NEC.
NEXANS Instrumentation Cable is LEAD FREE and RoHS Compliant.
Conductor: Bare, annealed copper conforming to ASTM B3 and Class B stranded in accordance to ASTM B8.
Insulation: PVC/Nylon Type TFN in accordance with UL 66, flame retardant, 90°C temperature rating.
Insulation Shield (on shielded pair/triad constructions): Aluminum foil/polyester shield helically wrapped to provide 100% coverage with a tinned copper drain wire that is two gauge sizes smaller than the circuit conductors. These shields are electrically isolated from each other.
Assembly: Pairs/triads are cabled in concentric layers. In the case of unshielded pairs/triads, they are cabled at staggered lengths to reduce crosstalk.
Overall cable shield: Aluminum foil/polyester shield helically wrapped to provide 100% coverage with a tinned copper drain wire that is the same size as the circuit conductors, with the exception of single pair/triad constructions where the drain wire is two gauge sizes smaller than the circuit conductors.
Jacket: UL listed sunlight and moisture resistant, sequentially length marked, black, flame retardant polyvinyl chloride material. A Nylon ripcord is included for ease of jacket removal.
Pairs: black/white and number coded
Triads: black/white/red and number coded
Fixed Position: 5 x cable overall diameter
During Installation: 8 x cable overall diameter
