  • MC Cables THHN Cores

    Applications
    Classic Wire Type MC Cable is primarily used for services, feeders, and branch circuits as specified in the 2011 National Electric Code. Type MC cable with Type THHN/THWN-2 conductors may be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C. Used for power and lighting indoors, exposed or concealed, in cable traywhere identified for such use; in a raceway, or in dry locations and embedded in plaster or against other masonry. Voltage rating for THHN/THWN-2 conductors is 600V.

    Construction
    Compact stranded AA-8000 series aluminum conductor material per ASTM B800, ASTM B801, ASTM B836, ASTM B901 (Single InputWire), as applicable. A binder tape is wrapped over the conductors with interlocked aluminum armor applied over the assembly. Rated 90°C wet or dry and is flame and sunlight resistant. PVC insulated THHN/THWN-2 conductors and bare grounding conductor surrounded with aluminum armor (Metal Clad).
