• HW 290 Listed CIR® Control Cable Multi-Conductor + Ground 0.6/1kV 90°C Gexol® Insulation

    Product Details

    The HW290 CIR Control Cable Multi-Conductor + Ground is a control cable built to withstand extreme arctic conditions and provide armor-free crush and impact resistance comparable to Type MC cables. The multiple conductors are made from stranded, soft annealed tinned copper wire, and insulation consisting of flame retardant Gexol cross-linked polyolefin compound wraps around each conductor and the ground. The cable is encased in a flameproof black jacket made from a thermoset compound that protects it from abrasion, oil, sunlight, water, and chemicals; and renders it impermeable to gases.

    This cable offers a safer alternative to traditional Type MC cable, requiring fewer tools to install and lacking the sharp edges of Type MC. It has much greater flexibility and an up to 40% smaller bend radius as compared to Type MC cable, which helps reduce kinking and cracking and allows for a much faster and easier installation. In addition, its excellent flexibility means that any upgrades, retrofitting, or relocation can be carried out much more smoothly. The cable can operate in temperatures ranging from 90°C to -75°C, with cold bend and cold impact temperature ratings of -40°C and -35°C respectively. Best used for working in harsh arctic environments requiring crush and impact protection.

    Product Highlights:

    • Superior flexibility to Type MC cables for quicker, easier installation. 
    • Up to 40% smaller bend radius than Type MC. 
    • Up to 35% less tray fill than Type MC. 
    • Brittle point for the jacket and insulation surpasses -65°C and -75°C respectively. 
    • CSA cold bend temperature rating exceeds -40°C and cold impact rating exceeds -35°C.

    Technical Standards:

    UL 1309                Single or multi-conductor power, control, and signal cables that may or may not be armored or have a jacket. The cables are rated between 0.3 and 35 kV and are used aboard offshore drilling rigs, offshore petroleum facilities, and ocean vessels.

    UL 1277                Electrical power and control tray cables that have no armor but do contain two or more aluminum, copper, or copper clad conductors, or one or more thermocouple-extension wires, but not both. One grounding conductor may be bare or insulated; more than one must be insulated. The cables may contain one or more optical-fiber members in individual jackets, all together under another jacket. The cables must be surface-marked with their particular ratings.

    UL 2225                Type MC-HL metal-clad and Type ITC-HL instrumentation tray cables, cable fittings, and cord connectors in hazardous locations. The cables, cable fittings, and cord connectors must be able to withstand an oxygen concentration of less than 21% by volume, an ambient temperature reaching as low as -50°C, and a nominal barometric pressure of 1 atm.
