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

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

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.

More than likely, it will depend upon the type of building (structure) it is installed in.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy maneuvering, simpull I picked up this cable from local HD @Rosenberg #6530. It is very easy to use. The price is great and product is excellent, and it is made in the USA. July 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Product This Southwire is a good quality wire, made in the USA. Use it pretty extensively as of late, with no issues. Well, with one issue - the end that is at the interior of the coil is cut at a very jagged, oblique angle, and it's sharper then you could ever imagine. After slicing my hand pretty good on several occasions, just grabbing up the coil, I now make sure to cut that end off square as soon as I open it up. Should this end ever catch your eye, which could easily happen when running it overhead, you'd be in deep trouble. November 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's wire what more do you want! This is typical romex wire 1000' spool makes it easy to install. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best wire out there Re-wiring my house and have gone through 750 feet of 12/2 and has not snagged on me once. I wish HD sold the 1000ft spools in store cause i need more March 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Romex The product is fine but you need to pack them better. UPS package's must withstand a 3ft drop and believe me they need too. When we got the wire the reels were all broke we can use them but it makes it hard to roll off the wire April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best deal best deal / price, just what I ordered and good product March 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Simpull can't measure a foot 25'roll came with less than 20'. Maybe buy a tapemeasure from someone dudes April 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 11, 2016
