Where To BuySpec Sheet PDF

Metal-Clad Cable with two-, three- or four-circuit THHN/THWN conductors and a green insulated ground in addition to a bare aluminum grounding/bonding conductor that is cabled on the outside of the separator tape, allowing it to be in constant contact with the armor and to serve as a redundant grounding path. Intended for use in accordance with the National Electrical Code®. Conductor constructions have the insulated conductors cabled together with a separator tape, displaying the identification print legend, wrapped around the assembly. An interlocked aluminum armor is applied over the entire construction.
