    Interlocked Armor UL Type MC Copper XHHW-2 cable utilizes uncoated soft copper conductors that align with specifications set forth by the American Society of Testing and Materials standard B-3, B-8 for compressed stranded conductors, and B-496 for compact stranded conductors.  The conductors are insulated with a cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) rubber that adds mechanical strength to the cable and protects the conductors from corrosion.  Among the assembly of conductors is an uninsulated bare stranded copper grounding wire.  The grounding wire keeps the cable grounded for steady conductivity over the life of the cable.  Fillers and binder tape are included as necessary to keep the assembly firmly in place.  The assembly of conductors is encased in an aluminum interlocked armor that is also available in galvanized steel.  The external armor keeps the conductors safe from being jarred or interfered with by outside objects.  The armor is coated with a black polyvinyl chloride jacket that serves as a sunlight, flame, and moisture-resistant outer skin.  The interlocked armor system on this cable makes it a great economical alternative to wire installed in conduit systems.

    The Interlocked Armor UL Type MC Copper XHHW-2 cable is intended for use in branch circuits, power distribution systems, and feeders.  It can be safely installed in exposed or concealed areas in wet or dry locations.  The Interlocked Armor UL Type MC Copper XHHW-2 cable is safe for direct burial applications and it can be embedded in concrete.  It may also be installed in cable trays troughs, metal racks, or supports.  When installing with supports, supports should be spaced no more than 6 feet apart.  This cable is deemed safe for use in hazardous locations as specified by NEC.  The cable offers excellent impact and crush resistance and its flexibility allows it to be easily re-routed.
