Product Overview

Type NM-B (nonmetallic-sheathed cable) may be used for both exposed and concealed work in normally dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90 Degree C (with-Ampacity limited to that for 60 Degree C conductors) as specified in the NEC 1. NM-B cable is primarily used in residential wiring as branch circuits for outlets, switches, and other loads. NM-B cable may be run in air voids of masonry block or tile walls where such walls are not subject to excessive moisture or dampness.-Voltage rating for NM-B cable is 600-Volt.

  • Copper conductors are annealed (soft) copper and UL listed
  • LTL curbside delivery only and will need to have a way to unload pallet, no forklift provided
  • Cable is available in a variety of colors, lengths and gauges
  • Unique (SlikQuik TM infused membrane) Jacket TM construction allows for 50% reduction in pulling force resulting in easier installation
  • LTL curbside delivery only; will need to have a way to unload pallet, no forklift provided
  • NM-B has two, three and four conductors and available with two neutrals, construction designed for easier pulling

Answer: 
No, it will not fit properly. The maximum allowable percentage of conduit fill is 40.0%. By using 1 1/4" you will comply with code. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in Read More

The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed. Read Less

Answer: 
No. 1 conductors per phase utilizing a #10 Copper conductor will limit the voltage drop to 2.63% or less when supplying 20.0 amps for 75 feet on a 120 volt system. **Note to User:All ampacity values are taken from the Section of 310-15 of the NEC. The conductor characteristics are taken from Table 9 of the NEC. The calculations used to determine the recommended conductor sizes for branch circuits are Read More
No. 1 conductors per phase utilizing a #10 Copper conductor will limit the voltage drop to 2.63% or less when supplying 20.0 amps for 75 feet on a 120 volt system. **Note to User:All ampacity values are taken from the Section of 310-15 of the NEC. The conductor characteristics are taken from Table 9 of the NEC. The calculations used to determine the recommended conductor sizes for branch circuits are based on 60°C ampacity ratings for circuits rated 100 amps or less or marked for use with #14 AWG - #1 AWG. Circuits rated over 100 amps or marked for conductors larger than #1 AWG are determined using 75°C ampacity ratings. Calculations to determine service and feeder conductor sizes are based on overcurrent device ratings rather than actual expected loads which are conservative and may yield oversized conductors. No calculations take into account temperature correction factors or conductor de-rating.
This voltage drop calculator is applicable only to NEC applications. It does not optimize conductor sizes for several different loads at various points in a circuit. The total combined load and length of the circuit must be used. Consult with an engineer if your application requires more complex engineering calculations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value The value of short lengths isn't in the price per foot, it's their suitability for specific needs. 100' is not the same as two 50's or for 25's. Being able to carry just what you need, pull it and be done is worth a lot more than the length based value proposition. By far the best value are the 5000' reels, but the two extra guys, gas rodders and cut cable protections really mess up the math.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good to work with Pulls great with no curls like you get with 250 foot rolls, this saves a lot for time. The 1000 foot rolls may be a little more but my time is worth more than the price difference.

Needed a short strip of 12/2 to put in an additional light in our attic and this was the perfect solution. Great service as well, I placed the order and within a couple of hours was notified it was available to pick up at the local Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I was afraid the description was wrong and it was only 1 250' roll but it was 2 250' rolls. Great price, fast delivery.
