Construction

MCAP® PCS Duo™ Cable is constructed with 12 AWG or 10 AWG CU Type THHN/THWN power and ground conductors along with a control conductor assembly composed of a 30 mil PVC jacket covering two 16 AWG CU Type TFN control conductors. The phase conductors, and control conductor assembly are cabled together and a binder tape bearing the print legend is wrapped around the assembly. The bare aluminum grounding/bonding conductor is located outside the binding tape and has the same lay as the insulated conductors. Aluminum interlocking armor is snugly applied over the assembly. The aluminum armor and bare aluminum conductor are in intimate contact and together form the equipment ground path. To insure proper installation, refer to the installation instructions provided with every reel and coil. Yellow stripe/blocks are printed on the outside of the armor and the print legend is applied in black print on every 4th yellow stripe/block. Also available with overall PVCjacket.
