Asked by Kev January 8, 2020

Answer

If this is being used as a service connection: No - 2/0 SER is not rated for a 200 Amp service entrance. You will need to use 4/0 SER instead. If this is being used as a feeder connection: No - 2/0 SER is not rated for a 200 Amp feeder connection. You will need to use 250 kcmil SER instead. (The NEC allows a smaller conductor (like 4/0 in this case) to be used for services due to assumed load diversity. This allowance is not permitted for feeders.) 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.

what size conduit would i need to pull this through?

Asked by KCMohr May 2, 2019
1
Answer

Best to run 2in conduit with lubrication. Most residential runs use 2 inch conduit up to 200 amps. This can change with longer runs requiring larger cable to make up for power losses inherent in wire/cables. This cable measures about 1-3/16 inches in diameter and will be wavy since it comes off a spool. 1-1/2 inch conduit only leaves about 1/8 inch on any side of the cable, easily taken up by minute bends in the cable. 2 inch conduit leaves about 3/8 inch on each/any side of the cable, which is of course a huge improvement. Wires and cables, especially service cable is best pulled with lubrication. The cable jacket is PVC as well as the conduit is PVC which creates high friction very quickly especially with the wire being wavy and ever more so if there are ANY bends along the pull/run. In addition to all that, you also end up pulling the added cable's weight. Imagine having purchased and installed the tighter conduit to save a few dollars only to have the cable get jammed up being too hard to pull and risking damaging something and having to remove it and purchase larger conduit. What a waste that would be as well as raise your blood pressure. What would all that wasted time/effort be worth to you?

Answer

You will be at 3.89% voltage drop at that distance and 3.09% drop with 3/0 and 2.45% with 4/0, so to be safe I would use 4/0 for 100 amp service at 190 ft. Distance.

Is each conductor color coded or otherwise identified

Asked by Huge September 15, 2018

Answer

there should be a color stripe on each conductor. Please view the spec sheet on the home depot website to see the specific 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.

Can this wire be used to feed a pole barn I have to run a 225 ft line from the house to the barn and can it be buried

Asked by R1980 October 29, 2017
1
Answer

Trenched in conduit is fine, but you will need to double check how many amps you are using in total before you proceed. That long of a distance has serious amperage dropoff due to distance, so make sure it will adequately and safely power it before doing any installation. In fact, it's best practice to consult a licensed electrician to ensure it can and will work.

This is an excellent cable. We were able to pull this cable from the transfer switch, through the attic of the garage, down to the basement, and through the unfinished basement to the generator on the other side of the house without any lubrication. Through all of that, there was only one small torn spot which was easily corrected with electrical tape.
