    We call it “heat-ex” because it is used often for 240 volt heaters

    The hosers that picked the LV colors for Austin must have been from the Great White North.

    Supposedly, its because the city owned electrical utility delivers power "CBA".


    CANADIAN WIRE COLOR CODES FOR AC POWER
    In Canada, wire color coding standards are set by the Canadian Electric Code (CEC). The color code for AC power wiring is similar to the code used in the United States (and the same as Austin, TX):

    Phase 1 - Red
    Phase 2 - Black
    Phase 3 - Blue
    Neutral - White
    Ground - Green with Yellow Stripe



    Nice one. I didn't know this. Thank you

    Yes, that's close to what it is, PVC coated MC. Actually is it XLPE conductor insulation (XHHW-2), then a PVC inner jacket (like Tray Cable), an aluminum armor like MC, then another PVC outer jacket. MC, even the versions with the outer jacket, doesn't have the inner PVC jacket, usually it just has a clear mylar sheath.

    Spelled "Teck" and most of what is sold is 90C so it is called "Teck 90". It's actually nice stuff to work with.
    Cool info, thanks.

    Thats part of it. There is also the issue of what CSA is doing with the law itself.

    More evidence code making bodies are becoming corrupted by outside "influence".

    Welcome Canadian sparks!

    I have an old CEC around here somewhere.

    Iirc, both CEC & NEC hail from the IEC

    Of interest are some of the sublte differences , which provoke the theory behind them

    conductor ampacity

    Some may recall a few code cycles ago we had some ampacity changes in our tables. It was my understanding that was part of an effort to harmonize with the CEC.
