Questions & Answers

does this cable have a green ground wire

Asked by: ote3
Yeah, just confirming what Ace said. This is "AC" type armored cable, which does NOT have a full-gauge copper ground wire. It has a 16 gauge aluminum wire, which works in conjunction with the metal armor to act as a ground. Make sure that you read up on how to properly ground with AC cable, it is a little bit different from what you're used to with the green-insulated or bare-copper grounding wire.

is color white available?

is color white available?
Asked by: Woody
the AL armored cable does is not offered in different colors. 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.
