Aluminum RHH, RHW, USE
Underground Service Entrance Cable. 600 Volt. AlumaFlex® Brand Aluminum Alloy (AA-8176)
Conductor. Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLP) Insulation. High Heat, Moisture, and Sunlight
Resistant. Also Rated THWN-2. Rated SIS in #8 – 4/0 AWG
APPLICATIONS
Southwire Type RHH or RHW-2 or USE-2 conductors are used with conduit as specified
in the National Electrical Code. When used as Type USE-2, conductors are suitable for
use as underground service entrance conductors for direct burial at conductor
temperatures not to exceed 90°C. When used as RHW-2 or USE-2, conductor
temperatures shall not exceed 90°C in wet or dry locations. Voltage rating for RHW-2 or
RHH or USE-2 conductors is 600 volts.
STANDARDS & REFERENCES
Southwire Type RHH or RHW-2 or USE-2 conductors comply with the following:
• ASTM B-800 and B-801
• UL 44 for RHH or RHW-2
• UL 854 for USE-2
• Federal Specification A-A-59544
• National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, 2011 Edition
• NEMA WC-70 Construction Requirements
• RoHS/Reach Compliant
CONSTRUCTION
Southwire Type RHH or RHW-2 or USE-2 conductors are AlumaFlex® Brand AA-8000
series aluminum alloy, compact stranded. The insulation is an abrasion, moisture, heat
and sunlight-resistant black cross-linked polyethylene (XLP). CT rated available upon
request sizes 1/0 and larger.
