300V Elevator Traveling Cable (Jute Core)


These cables are designed for installations in elevators, dumbwaiters, personnel and material hoists. The cables are used for suspended lengths of under 200 feet (61 meters) as specified by the NEC, UL, CSA, and Canadian Electrical Codes.


Center Jute Core

Fibrous-plied jute center core, insulated conductors are cabled around.

Insulated Conductors

Soft-annealed, bunched stranded bare copper per ASTM Standards B3 and B174.

The conductors are insulated with flame retardant 60°C polyvinyl chloride and are rated at 300 volts in accordance with the requirements of UL 62, CSA C22 .2 No. 49 and the appropriate articles of the NEC and Canadian Electrical codes.

Each conductor is color and number-coded for easy identification.

Shielded Pairs (optional)

Two insulated 20 AWG soft-drawn bare copper conductors, PVC insulated, twisted with a bare drain wire.

The laminated polyester and aluminum foil tape creates 100% shield coverage.

The assembly has an overall colored PVC jacket and rated 300V.

Coaxial Cable (optional)

RG-6, 75 ohm and 300V rated coaxial cable.


Fibrous-plied jute fillers to provide the cable a circular cross section, enhance torsion stability, and cushion the construction during flexing.


A tightly woven braid of cotton, rayon, or equivalent applied over the core to help maintain core shape, torsion balance and add mechanical strength.


An overall jacket of polyvinyl chloride provides a smooth, flexible, abrasion-resistant covering complying with the flame test requirements UL 1581 and is CSA FT-1 flame rated.
