Tray Cables

Tray Cable TC (Type TC) is defined by the National Electric Code as “a factory assembly of two or more insulated conductors, with or without associated bare or covered grounding conductors under a nonmetallic sheath, for installation in cable trays, in raceways, or where supported by a messenger wire and rated for 600 volts.” An extension to the tray rated cable, is an exposed run (ER) rating. Type TC-ER cable complies with the crush and impact requirements of metal-clad cable. It can be used when dropping out of cable tray to equipment or devices, and also where dropping from tray to tray. Section 336.10(7) of the 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC) is clear that cable with only a TC rating cannot be run unprotected outside a raceway or cable tray. The Type TC-ER cable can be used up to 50 feet past the cable tray without having additional armor or be held within a tray. Type TC-ER cable with IEC Pin and Sleeve, NEMA and Russellstoll devices are UL Listed available assemblies.
