In addition to MC and AC product lines, AFC Cable Systems® also has a selection of additional cable wiring products as accessories.
Bare armored ground cablesare available with galvanized steel interlocked armor with one stranded or solid copper conductor. They are UL listed under UL File No. E82631 and manufactured to UL Standard 467. Bare armored grounds are used as grounding electrode conductors. These conductors are used to connect the system grounded conductor, or the equipment, to a grounding electrode or to a point on the grounding electrode system. For example, the grounding conductor can be used to connect equipment such as electrical service panels to grounding electrodes such as metal underground water pipes, metal building frames or other electrodes permitted for grounding. The steel metallic armor provides protection against physical damage that is required by the National Electrical Code section 250.64.
Within our line of accessories, we also have Lighting, Power and Appliance whips in both metallic and non-metallic options. These whips are UL listed under File No. E96572 and are provided with solid or stranded copper conductors with standard 120/208V colors and with other colors available by request. The Whips are pre-wired and are supplied with leads cut to the proper length for termination. Each whip is also supplied with the proper connector on each end. Metallic whips are convenient for powering lighting fixtures and motors, and are intended for use indoors and only where they will not be exposed to wet locations. Non-metallic whips are approved for use indoors or outdoors and are great for running power to air conditioning hook ups, outdoor lighting and other outdoor applications such as a disconnect for Jacuzzi’s or pool filter motors. All whips are available in barrels and cartons.
