UL Standard for Safety Machine-Tool Wires and Cables
|Publication Date:||13 July 2017|
These requirements cover all-thermoplastic Type MTW, 600-V, machine-tool wires and cables for use as specified in the National Electrical Code (ANSI/NFPA 70), and in the National Fire Protection Association Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery (ANSI/NFPA 79). These wires and cables comply with a flame test and are for use at 90°C (194°F) and lower temperatures in dry locations and at 60°C (140°F) and lower temperatures where exposed to moisture, oil, or coolants such as cutting oils and the like.
The two single-conductor constructions covered are described in Table 1.1. Both are PVC-insulated and one includes a nylon jacket over the insulation. These single-conductor constructions may be optionally shielded and jacketed. The multiple-conductor constructions covered consist of assemblies of these single-conductor constructions (sizes and styles may be mixed) enclosed by a PVC jacket.
