Applications Top of Page

 

For use primarily in residential wiring, including branch circuits for outlets, switches, etc. May be
installed in both exposed and concealed work in normally dry locations. May be installed in air
voids of masonry block or tile walls where these walls are not subject to excessive moisture or
dampness. May be installed in locations with temperatures up to 90°C, but with the
ampacity limited to that of 60°C conductors. Added Circuit: For use primarily in residential wiring
for branch circuits supplying outlets located in bedrooms and other areas. Has two separated
neutrals so one cable can be used to run two circuits when sharing of a neutral is not allowed.

Assembly Top of Page

Two-conductor constructions have the insulated conductors laid parallel. Ground
wire is wrapped with paper and laid parallel between the insulated conductors. The
entire construction is wrapped with a paper separator before applying the jacket. Three
-conductor constructions have the insulated conductors twisted together or laid parallel to each
other. Ground wire is wrapped with paper and twisted together or laid parallel to the insulated
conductor.
