CIR® - Crush & Impact Resistant Cables

Extrememly Flexible • No External Armoring
Rated TC-ER-HL • Power, Control & Instrumentation


Nexans AmerCable’s CIR is designed to replace older-technology cables like Type MC. Nexans AmerCable CIR has been successfully used globally since 2002 for mission-critical equipment operating in harsh environments.

  • Insulated with GEXOL® – Nexans AmerCable’s exclusive insulating compound provides superior flexibility, dielectric properties and field-proven performance in the harshest environments.
  • Smaller bend radius (up to 40% smaller)
  • 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 cable and the easiness of prepping for terminations. ”

CIR Offers Significant Advantages Over Type MC:
  • Highly flexible – unlike Type MC, CIR is flexible for easier installation. The cable can also be reused during an upgrade or retrofit.
  • Designed to operate in extremely cold environments
    • Exceeds CSA cold bend/cold impact (-40°C/-35°C)      
    • Brittlepoint as per ASTM D 746-07 exceeds -65°C for the Jacket and -75°C for the Insulation.
  • 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
