Do you know XHHW-2 aluminum cable?

Jul. 15, 2017

XHHW-2 aluminum cable is the newest generation of XHHW wire. While its main designation is for use in residential, commercial and industrial buildings, it’s also used in raceways and feeder and circuit wiring.

This wire is manufactured with copper or aluminum conductors and is either solid or stranded cable. A larger size wire is stranded to maintain flexibility.

XHHW-2 type aluminum conductor is approved for use up to 600 volts and rated by UL for 90 degrees Celsius in dry and wet locations. The previous generation of XHHW had a lower temperature rate. It was only approved up to 75 degrees Celsius in wet environments, making the new XHHW-2 generation a more desirable product.
