HW174: 600V Shielded Substation Cable, XLP XHHW-2, LSZH (8 AWG - 500 MCM)

Application

LifeGuard™ Low Smoke Zero Halogen* cable is for use in power, control and lighting circuits in a broad range of utility substation applications where shielding from ambient electrical interference is required. LifeGuard™ jacket is highly flame retardant, produces very small amounts of smoke when burned and contains no halogens. LifeGuard™ cable is ideal for applications where a high degree of safety and equipment protection is required. LifeGuard™ cable is UL listed as Type TC-LS and approved for installation indoors or outdoors, aerially, in conduits, ducts, cable trays and direct burial in circuits not exceeding 600 volts. It may be installed in temperatures as low as -30°C and used in NEC Class I and II, Division 2 hazardous locations. It is UL approved for continuous operation at 90°C in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions.
