    Type W Single, Multi Conductor

    Product Description:

    The Type W Power Cable is available in a single or multiple conductor construction.  The cable employs rope-lay stranded, bunched members, annealed copper conductors.  Annealed copper conductors offer superior flexibility over standard copper conductors, but have the same powerful conductive properties.  The conductors are wrapped in a polyester or paper tape to separate the copper conductors from the insulation.  The insulation, made of ethylene propylene (EP), protects the conductors from corrosion and abrasion.  The assembly includes round fillers to keep the cables from shifting under the jacket.  The exterior jacket is made of crosslinked polyethylene that is reinforced by a serve or braid of synthetic material.  The jacket acts as the first line of defense against abrasion and corrosion due to high heat, moisture, sunlight, flame, and oil.

    Applications:

    This cable is a flexible cord that can be used in a an array of heavy-duty tasks.  The cable passes FT-5 Flame Test and is therefore safe for use in locations with an increased risk of fire.  It is suitable for use in indoor or outdoor applications and its outer jacket is resistant to UV rays.  The cable’s temperature rating is -40°C to 90°C and can transmit ampacities up to 2000 volts.  Common uses for this cable include heavy-duty service and temporary power supply.  The cable’s resistance to oil makes it suitable for use on motors, generators, and battery leads.  Type W Power cable is also used for portable power tools and mobile electrical equipment.

    Specifications:

    • In accordance with specifications set forth by Underwriters Laboratories, a compliance and regulations organization, the cable aligns with UL standard 1650; a standard that sets expectations for the performance of portable wire.
    • The cable is Underwriters Laboratories Listed as Type RHH or RHW-2.
    • Type W Single and Multi-Conductor Power Cable is in compliance with Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive.
    • The cable aligns with specifications set forth by American Society of Testing and Materials, standard B-172; a standard for rope-lay stranded wires.
    • Type W Power Cable meets NEMA WC-58 for Portable and Power Feeder Cables for Use in Mines and Similar Locations
    • The product complies with ICEA S-75-381 for portable and power feeder cables.

    Construction:

    -                Conductors

    • The Type W Power Cable is available in a single or multiple conductor construction.
    • Multiple conductor constructions are available in 2, 3, 4, or 5 conductor assemblies.
    • The cable employs rope-lay stranded, bunched members, annealed copper conductors.  Annealed copper conductors offer superior flexibility over standard copper conductors, but have the same powerful conductive properties.
    • The conductors are wrapped in a polyester or paper tape to separate the copper conductors from the insulation. 

    -                Insulation

    • The conductor(s) bear ethylene propylene (EP) insulation.
    • EP insulation helps to protect the conductors from abrasion and corrosion.

    -                Assembly

    • The insulated conductors are assembled with round fillers as needed to keep the conductors firmly set within the jacket.

    -                Jacket

    • The exterior jacket is made of crosslinked polyethylene that is reinforced by a serve or braid of synthetic material.
    • The jacket acts as the first line of defense against abrasion and corrosion due to high heat, moisture, sunlight, flame, and oil.
