Okonite Single Wire Armored (SWA) Type P-OS (Pair/Triad - Overall Shield) instrumentation cables are designed for use as instrumentation, process control in ITnon-classified or labeled circuits up to 150 volts and 5 amps (750VA) and in Class 2 or 3 Power-Limited circuits where shielding against external interference is required, but shielding against interference among groups is not required; indoors or outdoors; in wet or dry locations with conductor operating temperatures up to 105°C; in cable trays; in raceways; supported by a messenger wire; under raised floors; for direct burial. Suitable for use in Class I, Division 2, Class II, Division 2, or Class III, Division 2 hazardous locations. Also for use as Power-Limited fire protective signaling cable (FPL) per NEC Code 760.
The wire armor provides excellent longitudinal strength for use as a messenger cable or for support in vertical drops (NEC Section 300-19) and provides physical protection against mechanical damage.
For dc service in wet locations X-Olene insulation having an overall aluminum C-L-X armor construction is recommended.
