formulated insulation, colour coded for phase identification, and then
twisted together into one assembly that allows for clean, accurate and

the conduit," said Jack Miller, President, Alcan Cable. "The
introduction of FeederPlex HS™ cable demonstrates Alcan Cable's continuous commitment to provide high
quality, cost effective and time-saving solutions that deliver real
bottom-line savings to the contractor."

stocking each colour and wire size combination. In addition, FeederPlex
HS™ RW90 improves cable performance by providing lower voltage drop over
that of single RW90 conductors in parallel.
