IEEE 1580 Type P Cables

Type P Rig Cables are specifically designed for installation and use in harsh environments found within offshore and onshore drilling rigs. These extreme environments may include severe cold, high heat, constant vibration, drilling mud, mechanical stress, and salt corrosion. As reliability on drilling rigs is a must, it is necessary to have IEEE 1580 Type P cables in stock which conform to strict standards and approvals. Houston Wire & Cable Company is an authorized distributor of Gexol® oil & gas cables. View link below for cable specs that include ampacity ratings based on IEEE 835 and IEEE 45.
