3/0-3 TYPE MC INTERLOCKED ARMOR CONTROL CABLE PVC JACKET 600V
Allowable Ampacity for 3/0-3 TYPE MC INTERLOCKED ARMOR CONTROL CABLE PVC JACKET 600V (per conductor): 225 Amps
The metal clad cable is an electrical wire designed for use in power lines not exceeding 600 Volts. The MC wire has an operational temperature rating from -25°C to 90°C in dry locations. The cable is armored with an aluminum interlocking strip, which offers great mechanical protection. This electrical cable is crush resistant and lightweight, therefore, not labor-intensive, which makes it a cost-effective option over other piped wire installations.

This aluminum armored cable has a fully annealed stranded copper conductor (Class B). Copper is the most common material used in electrical wires and cables, which is mostly because it has amazing electrical properties and is cheaper compared to other metals. The stranding enhances its flexibility and enables it to carry more current.
Conductor insulation for this metal clad cable wiring is made of cross-linked polyethylene (XLP) and is type XHHW-2, which provides a multi-purpose electrical wire a high heat and water resistance.
This metal clad cable jacket is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is lead-free. PVC is a strong material and can withstand any punishing environment it is subject to. It can withstand heat, moisture, impact, abrasion, corrosion, chemicals, oils, and weather. The PVC is color-coded to enable easy identification of the cable.
The interlocking aluminum strip serves as armor applied over the cabled together conductors, with the polypropylene tape wrapped around the assembly. The armor makes the MC cable highly resistant from crush and rodent as well as ensures installation with no extra inner duct or conduit.
