RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 can be installed as a General Purpose Building Wire, used in service entrance, feeders and branch circuit applications for residential, commercial, industrial and transportation environments for permanent installations utilizing 600 volts or less. Thanks to its excellent performance in overload or short circuit situations, and its heavy wall thickness, this product is ideal for underground service entrance (USE) in wet locations. RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 conductors are suitable for use in direct burial applications. RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 conductors can be used in environments where superior insulation toughness and chemical resistance is required. RHH/RHW-2/USE-2 has a high resistance to humidity making this cable suitable for wet locations, for outdoors and for weather resistant use.
