SCOPE: This specification covers single conductor EPR (ethylene propylene rubber) insulated, PVC jacketed power cable. This cable is capable of operating
contiuously at a conductor temperature not in excess of 90°C for normal operation, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions, and
is rated at 2,400V, wet or dry locations.STANDARDS: The following standards will form part of this specification - UL Standard 1072 for Medium Voltage Power Cable and ICEA S-96-659 (NEMA WC 71)
Nonshielded Cable Rated 2001-5000 Volts for Use in the Distribution of Electric Energy.
CONDUCTOR: The conductor will be Class B compressed soft or annealed copper in accordance with ASTM B3, and B8 and ICEA Part 2, Section 2.1 and 2.5.
CONDUCTOR SHIELD: The conductor shall be shield with an extruded semi-conducting thermosetting polymeric layer over the conductor, applied in tandem with and
firmly bonded to the insulation.
INSULATION: The insulation will be EPR (ethylene propylene rubber) meeting the requirements of the referenced standards. The minimum thickness shall not be less
than 90% of the average thickness.
JACKET: The cable shall be provided with a jacket of black PVC conforming to the requirements specified for polyvinyl chloride jackets in UL 1072. The average
thickness shall be in accordance with table 4-3 of ICEA, and the minumum spot thickness shall not be less than 80% of the average thickness 1.
IDENTIFICATION: Cable shall be identified by surface printing on jacket.
TESTS: Physical and electrical tests shall be conducted in accordance with the requirements of UL Standard 1072 and ICEA S-96-659 (NEMA WC 71).
AVAILABLE ALTERNATIVES: Upon request, cable is available in sizes AWG 1/0 and larger listed for use in cable trays.
