PE Sprinkler Systems Wire
From Irrigation Products
Conductor construction is soft drawn bare copper meeting the requirements of ASTM Specification B-3. Gauge sizes 14 thru 10 are solid conductors. The insulation is a linear low density, high molecular weight polyethylene for systems applications of up to 600 volts.
Application: Suitable for use as power and control wire for irrigation systems.
Conductor: Soft drawn bare copper (ASTM Specs. B-3 and B-8), Solid (14 awg thru 10 awg)
Insulation: Polyethylene (PE)
Temperature: 75° C
Voltage: 600 volts
Material must be able to pass the following tests without showing signs of degradation:
- Cold Bend — The insulation shall not show any cracks when sample is bent around a 3X mandrel after being subjected to -25° C for four (4) hours.
- Electrical — AC test voltage, 60 seconds at 7500 volts.
- Mechanical Water Absorption — Insulation shall not absorb more than 25 mg mass of water per square inch.
- Sunlight Resistance Test — Samples conditioned for 300 hours of carbon-arc or xenon-arc exposure.
