Underground Low Energy Circuit Cable
Conductor construction is soft drawn bare copper meeting the requirements of ASTM Specification B-3. Gauge sizes 18 and 16 are solid conductors. The insulation is a high quality polyvinylchloride (PVC) for systems applications of up to 30 volts and conductor temperatures up to 60° C.
Application: Suitable for use as direct burial power and control wire for irrigation systems.
Conductor: Soft drawn bare copper (ASTM Spec. B-3), Solid (18 awg and 16 awg).
Insulation: Polyvinylchloride (PVC)
Temperature: 60° C
Voltage: 30 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 5000 volts.
- Sunlight Resistance Test—Samples conditioned for 300 hours of carbon-arc or xenon-arc exposure.
