MC 2/4 Cable, Stranded Copper
Call for Price / ft.
WesBell MC (Metal Clad) cable is comprised of multiple THHN wires including a green THHN wire used as a ground. Since all of the conductors are insulated with THHN the cable can be used outdoors and in conduit. MC cable also has an aluminum metal clad jacket that acts as conduit for indoor applications requiring much less effort to install.

This metal-clad (MC) cable is an indoor and outdoor cable. The aluminum jacket protects the cable, allowing it to be used for many commercial and residential purposes.
Features of MC Cable 2/4
The MC Cable 2/4 has a rating of 2 on the American Wire Gauge (AWG) scale. The wire has a large diameter that can handle more amps of current. This cable also has four thermoplastic high-heat-resistant, nylon-coated (THHN) conductors and an additional ground wire. These conductors efficiently pass the electrical current through the cable.
The MC Cable 2/4 is made from 19 small strands, making the cable more flexible. This flexibility allows the cable to be coiled and transported and makes it easier to install in confined areas like between outlets, inside mounted racks and patch panels.
Applications for MC Cable 2/4
The wire and conductors are surrounded by a durable aluminum jacket. The aluminum covering shields the wire, allowing it to perform in applications such as:
- Above ground, outdoor locations: Since the ground wire is insulated with the MC jacket, this protection allows the wire to withstand environmental conditions.
- Underground without conduit: The THHN can be used outdoors, and they need conduit to prevent premature decay.
- Indoors without conduit: The aluminum jacket is rated for indoors without conduit since it offers the same protection a conduit would.
The MC Cable 2/4 is rated for 600 volts and 90 degrees Celsius in dry locations.
