 Press Releases

  • On May 23, 2017, SIMpull® Cable-in-Conduit (CIC) received the Plastics Pipe Institute’s Power & Communications Division Project of the Year. This is the third year in a row that Southwire has won this award. Plastic Pipe Institute (PPI) is a major trade association which represents all segments of the plastic pipe industry. Michael Perry of Southwire submitted the project and accepted the award from the PPI President Tony Radoszewski at its Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, Florida. A total of four projects and five individuals were honored.

    The project was to install over 8700 feet of different sizes of CIC to hook up power to multiple housing units in a small town in Texas. The ground was trenched and multiple runs of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) CIC were laid next to each other. The install transitioned to PVC pipe for stub ups into housing panels and vaults.

    Overhead ConductorDavidson Electrical, the contractors who worked on the project, were impressed with the time and cost savings that CIC granted them. The Executive VP relayed “it not all about cost savings. CIC allows you to do things you cannot do with PVC and building wire. Mostly about time on target. Our guys are usually out of town which means there is a travel cost and per diem tacked on to every hour of labor. In addition this time of year it rains a lot. How long the ditch is open is a critical issue.”

    CIC offers many advantages over traditional installation methods. The one-step installation saves time, money, and equipment costs and customized orders allow nearly any cable from Southwire’s catalog to be installed in conduit. As it is a member of the SIMpull Solutions® product and service suite, CIC increases job safety, productivity, and profitability.

    PPI took the ease of use, customer satisfaction, and the reception that CIC has received on social media into account when selecting the project to win the Project of the Year Award.

  • Southwire is excited to tell you about our Metal Clad Cable Neutral-Per-Phase products. We continually innovate to ensure that our products offer contractors cost effective solutions that are Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Listed and National Electrical Code (NEC) compliant to the latest changes to codes and standards. Multiple neutral and oversized neutral MC Cable constructions have been around for 20+ years as a solution to address overheating of the neutral caused by harmonics. In 2001, the NEC introduced additional language into the code that supports the use of neutral per phase constructions – NEC 210.7:

    NEC Article 210.7 – Where two or more branch circuits supply devices or equipment on the same yoke or mounting strap, a means to simultaneously disconnect the ungrounded supply conductors shall be provided at the point at which the branch circuits originate. 

    This basically states that all branch circuits must include a means to simultaneously disconnect all conductors that are sharing a neutral. This is important for the safety of anyone performing electrical work on the equipment or devices in the circuit, but can present an unintended inconvenience of power loss to other equipment or devices on the circuit. A safe and effective means of complying with NEC 210.7 is to install a cable with a dedicated neutral for each phase conductor. When you use a Neutral Per Phase MC Cable construction, you get the benefits of harmonic reduction as well as compliance with NEC 210.7.

    Our Neutral-Per-Phase cables allow higher conductor counts and are available in MC, MCAP®, HCF, PCS, and PVC Jacketed constructions. Configurations typically include neutrals that are striped to match the color of each phase conductor so the conductors can be quickly identified with confidence. Constructions with numbered neutrals are also available.

    Whether you’re installing in a box, outlet, light fixture, or panel board, our product line is an excellent choice to get the job done quickly and effectively.

    Southwire Armorlite® Type MC combined with Neutral-Per-Phase cables are constructed with solid soft-drawn copper Type THHN/THWN phase conductors, a dedicated neutral-per-phase conductor, and an insulated copper grounding conductor. The conductors are cabled together and a binder tape bearing the print legend is applied over the conductors.

    Our products meets or exceeds the following requirements:

    • UL83
    • UL 1569
    • UL 1685
    • UL Online Product Guide Info – Metal-Clad Cable (PJAZ) ( www.ul.com )
    • Federal Specification A-A59544 (formerly J-C-30B)
    • NFPA 70 (National Electrical Code), Article 330
    • Listed for use in UL 1, 2 and 3 Hour Through Penetration Firestop Systems
    • Jacketed & Non Jacketed will both pass ” UL Test” & “FT4/IEEE 1202” (70,000 Btu/hr) VerticalCable Tray Flame Test
    • REACH/RoHS-2 (Chemical Limit) Compliant

  • Southwire has launched a new multi-strand, high-quality aluminum cable with installation, cost and safety advantages that make it particularly suitable for down tower wind turbine applications.

    “The wind industry is expected to continue its robust growth as a top source of renewable energy generating capacity in the country,” said Brad Pollard, OEM sales manager. “The addition of this new down tower cable expands our product line in a key area and demonstrates our commitment to ongoing innovation for our customers.”

    Southwire’s aluminum down tower cable is composed of three layers:

    • 8000 Series Aluminum conductor per ASTM B800, Class C Compact strand per ASTM B801 or Single Input Wire stranding per ASTM B836.
    • Mylar binder tape.
    • Two-layer composite wall insulation, with an EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) inner layer and a CPE (Chlorinated Polyethylene) outer layer.

    Benefits of the Southwire cable include:

    Ease of installation. The multi-strand aluminum cable is more flexible than similar aluminum cables, which makes it easier to install. In addition, the CPE outer layer will allow clamps to grip, which also contributes to ease of installation.

    Lower cost. Generally speaking, aluminum is a less expensive metal than copper.

    Oil resistance. The product has been tested to common oils that are used in wind turbines per manufacturers’ requirements in Southwire’s labs.

    Increased safety. Because of its flexibility, the cable can be connected to the electrical access boxes inside a tower without having an extra splice and connector, eliminating excess cutting.

    America’s wind industry recently recorded its best start in eight years, installing 908 utility-scale turbines and switching on more megawatts in the first quarter of 2017 than the first three quarters of 2016 combined, according to a report released this month by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). Similarly, Navigant Consulting has forecast a strong 2017 for wind power.
