Revised:2011-10-26
Style 2787 Multiconductor Cable with Extruded Non-Integral Jacket.

Rating80 deg C, 150 Vac, Cable flame.
Conductor30 AWG - 16 AWG, solid or stranded, tinned or bare copper.
InsulationLabeled or Complying with manufacturer's AWM Procedure and having a minimum rating of 80 deg C and 150 Volts..
FillerRequired if necessary to form a relatively smooth round core for extrusion of outer jacket.
AssemblyTwo or more individually insulated conductors or groups of insulated conductors cabled together. All conductors in any group twisted together. If more than one group is used, groups shall also be twisted together. The length of lay of the twisted conductors or groups is not specified. A barrier layer, if employed, may be a fibrous wrap serving or braid; paper; nylon; PET; or a thermoplastic-tape wrap. Such a barrier layer would serve to protect the cable during further processing, and would be applied immediately over the twisted assembly of individual conductors or groups of conductors.
CoveringOptional. Extruded PVC, 15 mils minimum average thickness, may be extruded over the conductor assembly.
ShieldOptional. 36 AWG - 30 AWG, tinned or untinned copper applied as a wrap or braid or a wrap of aluminum faced Polyester tape. An uninsulated drain wire may be used. The shield may be over one or more of the insulated conductors or applied between the conductors assembly and the optional covering.
