NUAL® Brand ACWU90 cable with its interlocked aluminum armor and PVC jacket is designed for direct burial, wet locations or encased in concrete. The outer PVC jacket on ACWU90 makes this durable and rugged cable assembly approved for use in Class 1 Zone 1 and 2, and Classes 2 and 3, Divisions 1 and 2 hazardous locations. Engineered to replace conduit and wire applications, this all-in-one cable assembly offers fewer installation steps. NUAL Brand ACWU90 cable’s interlocked aluminum armor protects the conductors from damage before, during and after installation, and provides overall flexibility not available with a conduit. NUAL Brand ACWU90 is a factory-produced cable assembly consisting of one to four 90°C rated cross-linked polyethylene insulated conductors and one bare bonding conductor inside a flexible, interlocked aluminum armour. Multi-conductor ACWU90 cables are available in sizes 6 AWG to 750 kcmil. Single conductor ACWU90 cables are available in sizes from 1 AWG to 750 kcmil, but are not approved for use in hazardous locations. On single-conductor cables, the bonding conductor is applied concentrically around the phase conductor. NUAL Brand ACWU90 cables meet or exceed the requirements of CSA C22.2 No. 38 and C22.2 No. 51 and are approved for use in accordance with the recommendations of the Canadian Electrical Code. With its FT-4 rated, AG14 PVC jacket, NUAL Brand ACWU90 also meets the requirements of CSA C22.2 No. 174 Hazardous Locations and the FT4 Vertical Cable Tray Test. NUAL Brand compact aluminum alloy conductors carry twice the current per kilogram as equivalent copper conductors. NUAL Brand conductors terminate safely with industry standard dual-rated aluminum lugs. The cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation on the NUAL Brand conductors is rated for operating temperatures of -40ºC to +90 ºC and offers a higher maximum short-circuit temperature rating than thermoplastic insulation. It is sunlight and moisture resistant. NUAL Brand conductors are light weight for easier lifting and handling with 25% more flexibility and 40% less springback than copper conductors of equal ampacity. Heavy Metals Free insulation is RoHS compliant and environmentally sustainable while providing excellent longterm performance.
