type RHW-2 without outer covering, fixture wire does not appere in article 402.3 Fixture wires. what do you mean by type RHW-2 "without outer covering"08 code
# 12 wire, type RHW-2 without outer covering, fixture wire. how many can fit in a 3/4" intermediate metal conduit (IMC).
The "W" is for a conductor that can be used in a wet location. It is not for the type of jacket.Box of Rocks here, to lazy to get da book from da car!
I thought the last letter, in this case "W" was for only the outside jacket covering the inside insulated wire, thus making it a poorly written question; reflecting poor use of these wires in a real world application.
:roll:, What do I know... only First COC...
Thanks Don ! I did search for "Lettering" before I made my statement, an I do appreciate the insight!The "W" is for a conductor that can be used in a wet location. It is not for the type of jacket.
The "R" is for thermoset (rubber) insulation, the H is for 75?C insulation (the addition of the -2 at the end of this insulation type says that it is a 90?C insulation, often 90?C is designated by "HH").
