Wire & Cable Glossary

What do the ‘M’ and ‘C’ in MC cable mean? What does XLPE cable stand for? Why is it called SOOW cable? Answers to these questions and more!scientists

The world of wire and cable has a language of its own, and even those with experience need a translator from time to time. Your old pal Willie knows this to be true, so I’ve compiled a cheat sheet on wire and cable nomenclature for you to reference.

First, we have a list of individual descriptors, each either made up of one or two letters. These can define what the cable is used for, what it’s made of, or what the cable can withstand––like heat resistance or voltage ratings. Often, a cable’s name will be some combination of two or more of the descriptors below.

The Components of Wire & Cable Nomenclature

E: thermoplastic elastomer
FF: flexible fixture
H: heat-resistant 75ºC
HH: high heat-resistant 90ºC
J: junior service, rated to 300 volts

National Electrical Code 2014 Overview

National Electrical Code 2014

If your wiring job is in the United States, Mexico, or Venezuela, most likely it has to comply with the National Electrical Code (NEC). This is a hefty volume containing over 900 pages of carefully worded regulations pertaining to all residential, commercial, and industrial wiring installed in jurisdictions that have adopted the Code—which is to say that they have enacted it into law. No matter what type of electrical job you’re performing, the NEC is a great resource to consult.

Type NM-B (Romex) Cable

Romex Cable

Type NM stands for nonmetallic sheathed. The cable consists of a factory assembly of two or more insulated conductors within an overall nonmetallic jacket. Additionally, there is an equipment-grounding conductor that is bare or has green insulation. Type NM is identified by the size of the conductors and number of them. For example, the very commonly used Type NM 12-2 cable contains two 12 American Wire Gauge (AWG) insulated conductors. In this numbering system the bare or green equipment-grounding conductor is not counted. Hence it is known as NM 12-2 w/ground.

Closely related cable types are Type NMC, which has a corrosion-resistant outer covering, and Type NMS, which contains, in addition to the usual power conductors, communications (signaling) wires. When the letter B is appended, as in NM-B cable, it indicates that the conductor insulation is rated for 90 degrees C.

Stephen Gray and the Invention of Wire

Inventor of Wire

Stephen Gray (1666-1736)

Stephen Gray, who lived from 1666 to 1736, was a skilled astronomer, instrument maker and electrical experimenter. Out of favor with the brilliant but contentious Isaac Newton, who headed the influential Royal Society, Gray spent most of his life unrecognized. He worked in obscurity, staying with friends and supporters and living in homes for the destitute.

Here is what Marc had to say:

This project is an Off-Grid hybrid system that includes a 3 kW wind turbine on a 100 ft self-supporting lattice tower and 2.8 kW of photovoltaics on a dual axis tracker. Wire and Cable Your Way supplied us with #8 AWG SOOW for the down tower wiring, #8 THHN for the inverter/charger and solar charge controller wiring, and 4/0 welding cable for the home run battery connections.

2nd Place Winner – Electrical Wire for PV Array

Wire And Cable Your Way would like to congratulate Jeff G. out in Virginia who won 2nd place in our February 2015 photo contest.

We absolutely loved the expansiveness of the photo and how the wire was being used.

Here is what Jeff had to say about the project:

This is the “Monkey Bottom” PV array located at Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, VA. This is a 2.1 MW array providing supplemental power to the Naval Station. An array of Wire and Cable Your Way products were used to tie the power, monitoring and security systems together by the many contractors who participated in the project and the ongoing maintenance of the system.

Wire And Cable Your Way would like to congratulate John Kielty for winning 3rd place in our February 2015 photo contest!

Although this photo may be a little “out of the box” we really loved the creativity of how the wire was being used.

John uses the copper in our 350 MCM Welding Cable Class K for tree sculptures.

Here is what John had to say:

My project is one of many copper tree sculptures embedded in unique rocks which my wife and I collect from the USA and Canada in our RV travels.
I use only 350 MCM Welding Cable Class K copper wire. Our friends and family seem to enjoy these gifts. These copper trees are set in drilled holes in a nice piece of Sierra Nevada quartz.
