Questions & Answers

Does the metal cladding make the third ""ground " wire unnessasary?

Asked by: Spanishstroll
No the metal cladding does not make the third ground unnecessary. You still need to ground the green wire at both ends of the circuit

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

Asked by: Denshirl
MC cable can be used outside where it will not get wet. Also keep in mind that though the MC cable can be used outside it can not terminate outside.

which one is better 12/2 or 10/2 whats the difference between twp

Asked by: dan
Neither one is "better". 10/2 is just bigger wire and can carry more current. 12/2 is used on branch circuits on short runs or circuits 15-20 amps or less. 10/2 is used on longer runs and higher amp circuits. Consult an electrician if you are not sure what size wire to use. Too small of a wire is a FIRE HAZARD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stuff to work with... I use this in my house rather than Romex, overkill but I like working with it and that it is less subject to damage in exposed areas like the attic, crawl space and my classic bare stud garage. Price is relatively good compared to buying 12 awg wire spools and pulling. Buy the special cutting tool for the cladding if you don't have one, well worth it.

One great thing about armored cable is that the rats cannot chew through it, like they can on an extension cord. It has three really nice wires inside and these have colored insulation. When you hook one end of the wire to a breaker, the electricity comes out the other end. You can hook up all kinds of things to this wire and they will work just fine. Just make sure you don't overload the wire, since it is not meant to carry too many amps. When you get a 250 foot roll. keep it wrapped up and pull out just what you need. If you unwrap it, the roll just springs apart and it gets knotted up, 250 feet of wire can really get tangled up. Have fun with all your electrical projects and BE SAFE!

So I first became aware of this cable back when i had a sub-panel installed in my garage to run all of the tools in my woodshop. Everything was going to be surface mounted and I did not want to deal with conduit, all the different fittings I would need, and snaking THHN cable through conduit. So an electrician who just so happen to be in the same isle gathering what he needed showed me to this stuff as he overheard me talking to one of the Home depot associates. So far this stuff has been great. I use the 3/8 clamps and those metal screw type drywall anchors to secure it to the wall. I have used it to run (4) 20amp 120v circuits and (2) 20amp 240v circuits. Now to me it does not look as good as conduit would have with the wires running through it, but this stuff is faster and if you plan your runs and run it neatly it looks good. I used my nippers to carefully cut away the metal cladding around the wire, but this leaves jagged and unsafe edges. So as other reviewers stated. I would recommend pickup up one of the armored cable cutters.
