    2 Hour Rated MC Cable

    Does anyone happen to know if the securing of 2 hour rated MC cable is different than what the NEC states? Thanks.

    I was looking at the Draka Lifeline MC yesterday and noticed the instructions said it need to be supported every 4 feet...I'm guessing you need to see what the manufacturer's instructions state.

    This is the cable I was looking at:

    It will differ. You need to look at the UL white book under FHIT and find the system that matches your product. It will have a number of details that won't be in the NEC.

    Thanks. And I'd also like to know if you have to use stainless steel strut and clamps. What about cable supports/chocks( like with regular wire) if it's going vertical 150-200 ft.

    According to the link seems like cable supports/chocks are not necessary. I think they made a typo when they say 40'.
