Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used in new construction?

Does it have to be used to feed power to a mobile home or can I use it to go from a 100 Amp meter pole to my main panel located inside a wood frame metal sided building? Can I direct bury it in the ground from the pole up to the point on entry to the building? Do I need to use it in conduit from the entrance point up to the main panel?
Asked by: wlp1963
This product is rated RHH/RHW/USE and can be used for this application. It can be direct buried and must be used in conduit when above ground and in the building. This 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.

Will this wire work to feed 100 amp main breaker panel in shop?

I'm looking to install 100 amp main breaker panel in shop which is about 140 feet from house. house has 200 amp breaker panel. What size conduit will I need for this wire?
Asked by: Bill
No, you would need to utilize a #4/0 Aluminum conductor. By doing so, it will limit the voltage drop to 2.73% or less when supplying 100.0 amps for 140 feet on a 120 volt system. Also, by using a #2/0 Copper conductor, the voltage drop will be limited to to 2.54% or less when supplying 100.0 amps for 140 feet on a 120 volt system. As far as finding the right size conductor, please refer to the link :http://www.southwire.com/commercial/calculators.htm The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC).

OK to bring inside building to panel?

Does this wire have a fire retardant coating? From what I understand, that is required in order to bring it inside a building. I would like to bring it in far enough to connect to the sub-panel. If it is fire-retardant, what code or wording on the wire will make it apparent to an inspector.
Asked by: Bud
Yes, this can be run inside to your subpanel as long as it is installed in conduit when exposed above the earth or inside the building. The Type RHH, RHW-2 ratings marked on the insulation indicate the insulation has fire retardant properties required for use inside the building.

what size pvc conduit and can it be used indoors in conduit?

Asked by: sparkey
MHF cable is direct burial rated and doesn't need to be installed in conduit except for where it emerges from the earth and when run inside the building to the subpanel. Yes, it can be run inside to the subpanel because the insulation does have fire retardant properties.
