135-23-9900 Okoguard Type MV-105 - 175 mils - 2 AWG
Okoguard is Okonite’s registered trade name for its exclusive ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR) based, thermosetting compound, whose optimum balance of electrical and physical properties is unequaled in other solid dielectrics.
Okoguard insulation, with the distinctive red color and a totally integrated EPR system, provides the optimum balance of electrical and physical properties for long, problem free service.
The Okoseal (PVC) jacket supplied with this cable is mechanically rugged and has excellent resistance to oil and most chemicals
Three 1/C Class B stranded copper conductors, triple tandem extruded, semiconducting EPR strand screen - Okoguard EPR insulation - extruded semiconducting EPR insulation screen, shielding tape and an overall jacket. Three single conductors are cabled together and laid parallel to a copper clad steel messenger. The messenger and triplexed assembly are bound together with a PE coated copper or stainless steel strap.
Okoguard shielded three conductor Okoseal Type MV-105 power cables are recommended for distribution circuits, and for feeders or branch circuits in industrial and utility power distribution systems. Type MV cables may be installed in wet or dry locations, indoors or outdoors (exposed to sunlight), in industrial establishments and electric utilities, residential and commercial applications and others. An excellent alternative where aesthetics and clearances are an issue.
