AC90 Cable
600 V, CSA Type, -40⁰C to +90⁰C
NUAL® Brand AC90 cable with its interlocked
aluminum armour is designed for aboveground applications. The distinctive features
unique to NUAL Brand AC90 cable provide
significant savings in installation cost and
time. Engineered to replace conduit and wire
applications, this all-in-one cable assembly
offers fewer installation steps. NUAL Brand
AC90 cable’s interlocked aluminum armour
protects the conductors from damage before,
during and after installation and provides
overall flexibility not available with a conduit.
NUAL Brand AC90 is a factory-produced 600-volt
assembly of one to four insulated, phase-identified
NUAL ACM conductors and one bare bonding
conductor inside flexible interlocked aluminum
armour. Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulated
conductors are rated for 90˚C.
Multi-conductor AC90 cables are available in sizes
6 AWG to 1500 kcmil. Single-conductor AC90 cables
are available in sizes from 1 AWG to 750 kcmil but
are not approved for use in hazardous locations. On
single-conductor cables, the bonding conductor is
applied concentrically around the phase conductor.
NUAL Brand AC90 cables meet or exceed the
requirements of CSA C22.2 No. 38 and C22.2
No. 51 and are approved for use in accordance
with the recommendations of the Canadian
Electrical Code.
