    Copper THHN THWN-2 Building Wire

    4/0 THHN THWN - 2 Copper Wire is a vast width THHN link with an admissible conveying limit of 195-260 amps, contingent upon the link temperature. 4/0 THHN THWN - 2 Copper Wire is a concentric lay stranded copper transmitter that is protected with a nylon coat. The acronym THHN remains for: Thermoplastic High Heat safe Nylon covered, alluding to the protection sort. Essentially, THWN remains for: Thermoplastic Heat and Water safe Nylon covered.

    4/0 THHN THWN - 2 Copper Wire is generally utilized as a part of course, a tube or trough that channels the wiring and further shields the transmitters from impedance. Conductor can be made of metal or plastic; the best sort contingent upon the job that needs to be done. 4/0 THHN THWN - 2 Copper Wire can be utilized as administration passage link where high wattage is required. The 4/0 THHN THWN - 2 Copper Wire is fit for working productively in temperatures up to 90°C and is favored in hot, dry areas. It can likewise handle temperatures up to 90°C, however is all the more ordinarily utilized as a part of wet areas, for example, tropical locales or adrift. 4/0 THHN THWN - 2 Copper Wire can likewise be presented to oil or coolants, however under these circumstances its warmth resilience drops to 60°C.

    4/0 THHN THWN - 2 Copper Wire link utilizes tempered delicate copper conveyors. The copper transmitters are compacted stranded. Compacting the strands in a link lessens the measurement of the link by 9-10%, making the links less demanding to pull. Copper is a to a great degree intense channel, as well as it stays stable for a to a great degree long time. Copper conduits in this link are protected by a thermoset plastic coat, which requires the protection material to be set under high warmth and after that cooled, giving it a rubbery composition. This makes the material exponentially more grounded to ensure the conductors inside.

    Product Description:

    Copper THHN THWN-2 Building Wire is a concentric lay stranded copper conductor that is insulated with a nylon jacket.  The acronym THHN stands for: Thermoplastic High Heat resistant Nylon coated, referring to the insulation type.  Similarly, THWN stands for: Thermoplastic Heat and Water resistant Nylon coated.  The external jacket creates a protective armor to preserve the conductors from corrosion due to excessive dryness, moisture, and sunlight.  

    Applications:

    This conductor can be used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications including service cable trays, electrical feeder cables, and branch circuits.  It is commonly used in conduit, a tube or trough that channels the wiring and further protects the conductors from interference.  Conduit can be made of metal or plastic; the best type depending on the task at hand.  The THHN build is capable of functioning efficiently in temperatures up to 90°C and is preferred in hot, dry locations.  THWN-2 can also handle temperatures up to 90°C, but is more commonly used in wet locations such as tropical regions or at sea.  THWN-2 can also be exposed to oil or coolants, but under these circumstances its heat tolerance drops to 60°C. 

    Specifications:

    • In accordance with specifications set forth by Underwriters Laboratories, a compliance and regulations organization established over 100 years ago, this conductor meets UL standard 83, requiring the conductor to be in compliance with National Electric Code and ANSI/NFPA 70 for save electrical design and installation.
    • The cable’s construction is in alignment with UL standard 1581 which specifies the electrical components, insulation, and colors of the cable.
    • This conductor meets with UL Standard 1063 for thermoplastic insulated conductors.  This standard sets the requirements for the cable’s heat tolerance under wet and dry conditions and its ampacity (600 volts).
    • The cable meets with Federal Specification A-A59544, deeming the product safe for industrial and commercial use.

    Construction:

    • Conductors

    -           This cable uses annealed soft copper conductors.  Copper is not only an extremely powerful conductor, but it remains stable for a much longer time than aluminum.  

    • Insulation

    -           The copper conductors in this cable are insulated by a thermoset plastic jacket.  The process of thermosetting requires the insulation material to be placed under high heat and then cooled, giving it a rubbery texture.  This makes the material exponentially stronger to protect the conductors within. 

    • Stranding

    -           The copper conductors are compressed stranded.  Compressing the strands in a cable reduces the diameter of the cable by 9-10%, making the cables easier to pull.
