HW308

Application:

For use in harsh environments where maximum conductor protection is required. Impervious armor prevents the entrance of water, gas and corrosive elements into the electrical core. Used for power, control and lighting circuits in a broad range of commercial and industrial pulp and paper, mining, and petroleum applications. Approved for use in wet or dry locations at 90°C, for installation indoors or outdoors, aerially, in conduits, ducts, cable trays or direct burial in circuits not exceeding 600 volts. UL listed, Type MC-HL per UL Standard 2225 for use in Class I, Division I hazardous locations. UL approved for use at 90°C for continuous operation, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions. Impervious continuously welded corrugated armor cable is recommended as an economical alternative to wire in conduit systems.
