The West Penn AQ225 Aquaseal 16-2 Stranded Cable is designed for indoor and outdoor fire, security, and control applications. It features 2 conductors that can support low voltage power, signal and circuit requirements. The AQ225 also features the West Penn Aquaseal technology that uses a 2 ply water swellable tape to protect the cable when installed in wet environments. This cable also features a UV rated, moisture resistant jacket that makes it ideal for exposed and underground applications.
Using 16 gauge cables is very common in low voltage installations where longer than normal cable runs are present. The thicker gauge conductors mean a bigger pipe and less voltage drop for your signals.
The AQ225 is Direct Burial Rated
The West Penn AQ225 Aquaseal 16-2 Stranded Cable is constructed using (2) 16 gauge stranded bare copper conductors that are color coded black and red. It is also 300 volt rated.
