ARMORED TYPE HCF WITH GROUND - HEALTH CARE FACILITIES - 600 Volt, THHN Insulation, 90°C Dry Location

Type HCF is constructed in the same manner as standard Type AC cable with the addition of a green grounding conductor. This additional ground allows HCF to be used in patient care areas of health care facilities (other than hazardous locations or emergency circuits in a health care setting) including hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices and medical centers per NEC 517.13. Type AC cable consists copper conductors inside an interlocked metal armor of steel or aluminum construction. A 16 AWG aluminum bonding wire is inside of, and in physical contact with, the metal armor providing a low-impedance fault-return path required for the operation of overcurrent protection devices. The bonding wire is unique to Type AC cable and allows the outer metal armor in conjunction with the bonding wire to be used as the equipment ground.

  • Concealed or exposed installations; Installed in raceway, conduit, Cable Tray, Fished or embedded in plaster
  • Interlocked aluminum strip armor is formed around the conductor assembly and aluminum bonding strip
  • Full size green grounding conductor plus armor/bond wire combination provides redundant ground or isolated grounding capability
  • Maximum continuous conductor temperature: 90°C DRY

  • Type HCF
    Application: Branch circuit wiring of general patent care areas within Heath Care Facilities
