Looking to share buy of 250' reel of AC wire (in wall metal jacket)


#1

In my search for wire to make a dedicated AC run from my breaker box, I ran across a mention on another forum of a solid conductor wire called Super Neutral Cable.

It’s main benefit is touted as “Designed to minimize the effects of harmonic currents on the neutral conductors generated by non-linear loads - Features oversized neutral conductor.” (however the 10-2 I don’t believe is oversized.)

The minimum order is 250 feet and I only need 75 feet.

I’m looking for 1-3 people (US based) to take the remaining approximately 175 feet.

The cost is approximately $6 per foot plus shipping.

The outer armor diameter is 0.67 inches for the 10 gauge 2 wire. There is also a 10 guage 3 wire but I don’t believe it’s needed. I’m going to run it externally - can be used in wall or on wall- it’s rated for extrusions I believe.

The double neutral won’t be necessary at all if you run a dedicated circuit: hot and neutral. It’s only useful for networked circuits where two hots share a neutral supplying non-linear (switching mode power supplies, electronic ballasts, etc.) loads. If code allows BX in your area, just buy a box of three wire #10 AWG (American Wire Gauge), BX (FMC - Flexible Metal Conduit, as defined by the National Electrical Code) at Home Depot.

Just looked it up 10/3x125’ is $142.07.

BTW: The 3rd wire is a ground. The metal armor can be used as ground in some situations but not all. Typically limited in length. I recommend the three wire.
