Just to clairfy, this product can be used outdoors?

Asked by: Fogue
Yes; but in limited circumstances. Manufacturer datasheet clearly specs this cable for 90c dry/75c wet. Its a misnomer that wet rated MC needs a "waterproof" outer cover. Code allows for MC cable in wet or dry as long as _either_ the outer cover be impervious to moisture or the individual conductors rated for wet. In other words-- its not necessary for the metal cladding to be impervious to moisture as long as the conductors themselves are rated as such. However, I would not use it in any area that is continuously exposed to wet conditions. The conductors are jacketed with nylon which absorbs water and degrades possibly swelling in the process. This condition leaves the thin PVC insulation at risk. For wet conditions preferably the cover would either be water tight non-metallic to avoid conductors exposure to liquids or have XHHW conductors that are designed for wet conditions.

can this be used for outdoor ligtning such as flood lights on side of house?

Asked by: Denshirl
The short answer is no. The longer version is only if rated for outdoor use, or so long as it does not terminate outside since the connectors are rated for dry use only.

It has three colored wires inside (black, white, and green) to connect the electrical service to a device or devices located away from the source. The wires have vibrant colors that make them very attractive, possibly more so than other electrical wires I have seen. The solid wires allow the electrons to flow freely and unobstructed. A free flowing electron is a happy electron, after all. This cable has segments like a caterpillar that allow it to bend around corners. The finish on the jacket is a bright, shiny silver color that will blend with any decor, that is any decor that is buried within the ceiling or walls of a room. I don't know what more to say. This is MC cable, it is a mundane product, it works as advertised, and Home Depot wanted it reviewed.

Purchased to have my son (an electrician) run an additional line in my garage to handle a circuit for my upright freezer which was given to me. Since I have additional electrical output on other devices (wood working tools), it was needed. It worked well for my situation.
