TC-ER-HL Crush & Impact Resistant Without External Armoring.
Power, Control & Instrumentation.

Passes The Same Crush & Impact Testing Required by UL 2225 for Type MC-HL

CIR-2 is ideal for oil patch applications where you need a crush & impact rated cable but don't want to mess with Type MC. CIR-2 cables comply with the requirements for hazardous location cables required by UL 2225. This highly robust cable offers significant advantages over Type MC:

  • Highly flexible for easier installation and can also be reused during an upgrade or retrofit.
  • Insulated with GEXOL®
  • Smaller bend radius (up to 40% smaller) and Reduced tray fill (up to 35% less) compared to Type MC
  • Gas & vapor tight – impervious to water and air
  • Rated TC-ER-HL

“ Two things contractors and engineers can’t stop raving about are the flexibility of the CIR-2 cable and the easiness of prepping for terminations. ”

  • UL Listed as TC-ER-HL (E123629): Suitable for Class 1, Div 1 and Zone 1 environments
  • UL Listed as Type TC-ER: Suitable for use in Class I, Div 2 and Zone 2 environments
  • Severe cold durability:
     Exceeds CSA cold bend/cold impact (-40°C/-35°F). Brittlepoint as per ASTM D 7646-07 exceeds -65°C for Jacket and -75°C for insulation n 90°C temperature rating
  • Flame Retardant – IEEE 1202


For more information:


  • CIR does not expose cable installers to the sharp metal armor edges created during Type MC cable prep.
  • The only tool required to prep CIR is a knife, whereas Type MC requires an expensive box of tools and a multi-step procedure for jacket removal
  • CIR’s jacket and insulaton are easy to strip and its flexibility makes it easier to handle.
  • Glands for CIR-2 cables cost up to 50% LESS than those for Type MC.
  • CIR-2 has a lower total installed cost.
    Up to 38% LESS!
“ Prepping CIR-2, unlike prepping MCHL, saves time in the field so the contractor is saving money on labor. ”
