Type RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 is a versatile building wire suitable for a variety of applications. The cable is rated at 600V. It is used with conduit according to the specifications provided by NEC for lighting and power. Connecting photovoltaic modules is one of the typical applications of the cable. RHH/RHW-2 is also used in aerial applications and raceways. The electrical wire can be applied differently according to each specification.

As Type USE-2, the wire is used as an underground service entrance cable for direct burial. In this case, the temperatures should not exceed 90° C. The electrical wire is used as RHH in dry locations with temperatures not exceeding 90°C. As RHW-2 or USE-2, the cable is used in wet and dry areas with temperatures not exceeding 90°C. 

2/0 XLP USE-2 Cable Applications

  • Service Entrance: Often used as service entrance wires for residential homes with larger electrical service, such as 200-amp service.
  • Sub-Panels: Feeding sub-panels in larger buildings or industrial facilities.
  • Large Industrial Machines: Providing power to large motors or machinery that require significant current.
  • Underground Feed: For feeding outbuildings or secondary structures on a property.



RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 conductors are made of annealed soft copper. Compared to aluminum, this conductor performs better in smaller conduits.


The cable has an abrasion, heat, and moisture resistant cross-linked polyethylene insulation (XLPE). The insulation is durable in harsh conditions.
