A quick primer on this popular product group!

When it comes to functionality and diversity among specialty wire and cable products, tray cable stands out as a clear winner. VNTC (Vinyl Nylon Tray Cable) can be found in a wide variety of commercial buildings, manufacturing facilities, and exterior applications. These versatile products are approved for installation aerially, supported by a messenger, in conduits, raceways, wireways, ducts, and cable trays. For exterior uses, VNTC is sunlight resistant and suitable for installation in both wet and dry locations, making it an excellent choice for direct burial.

VNTC is among the most popular varieties of tray cable and is flame retardant. VNTC construction features multiple THHN conductors with PVC/nylon insulation and a durable PVC jacket. VNTC is rated for 600 volts and 90º Celsius and is made up of THHN singles with an extruded PVC jacket throughout. VNTC is also available with the “ER” optional marking from UL. This ER mark indicates that the product is suitable for use in extended runs, or an open wiring configuration without the use of conduit.

Vinal Nylon Tray Cable is available in many varieties and is quite easy to work with for installers. technicians and electrical contractors.  Distributor Wire & Cable (DWC) stocks an array of sizes and conductor counts from 18 AWG up to 750 MCM. For current flow, VNTC can be configured with anywhere from 2 to 50 conductors. Control versions of VNTC tray cable (10 AWG-18AWG) are also available in shielded and non-shielded varieties.

At DWC, we feature an expansive tray cable inventory, allowing electrical distributors to write more orders and maximize profits. Contact your DWC Account Manager today for quotes or questions about this popular product group.
