TYPE MC CABLE
APPLICATION: Type MC Cable can be used to replace wire and conduit in applications such
as cable tray, power lighting, service feeders and branch circuits as permitted
by the National Electrical Code.
PRODUCT Type MC cable is constructed with 3 or 4 8000 series compact stranded
FEATURES: aluminum XHHW-2 conductors cabled with a bare or insulated 8000 series
aluminum grounding conductor. A binder identification baring tape is wrapped
over the cabled assembly. Aluminum armor is interlocked over the conductor
assembly. All insulated conductors are phase identified.
STANDARDS: KINGWIRE Type MC Cable with Type XHHW-2 conductors meets or exceeds
UL standard 44, UL standard 1569, Federal Specification JC-30B, ICEA S-66524 and requirements of the National Electrical Code.

Notes:
1. Ampacities shown are for general use as specified by the National Electrical Code, Section 310.15
Under normal conditions four conductor ampacities are not derated as shown above. If NEC Section 310.15 (b) (4)
(a) does not consider the neutral as current carrying conductor, use ampacities listed for the three conductor cable.
2. Standard lengths are subject to normal manufacturing tolerance of +/- 10%
3. Other conductor sizes available upon request. Other ground sizes are available upon request.
