I had an inspector in Texas ...  He decided to go inspect food vendors people who don't have a clue about wiring.

Fixed that for ya.

Thanks, Mike.

If confronted, how do I prove that the inner jacket has a 300V rating, since it is unprinted?

I have not personally had a lot of experience with inspectors, but have been told it's their way or the highway and they can be hard to convince without evidence.

Cross-posting this, which I just posted in another thread, but is also relevant here:

Here's what seems to be the relevant section of the National Electrical Code, from Chapter 3, Wiring Methods and Materials:

Quote
300.3 (C) (1) 1000 Volts, Nominal, or Less. Conductors of ac and dc circuits, rated 1000 volts, nominal, or less, shall be permitted to occupy the same equipment wiring enclosure, cable, or raceway. All conductors shall have an insulation rating equal to at least the maximum circuit voltage applied to any conductor within the enclosure, cable, or raceway.

And here's a related article based on a different section of the code.

Thank you.

Raising this thread from the dead because it's been resolved.

The 14/3 version of this cable, which apparently has different shielded twisted pair makings, is in fact rated at 300v and that is printed on the cable. So after lengthy delay on my side, I sent back most of the original unused 12/3 and today got a reel with the 14/3. I paid shipping on the return and Whirlwind paid it on the new cable. I kept a 35' chunk to remind me of the experience.

The 14/3 costs less than the 12/3, so there is a bunch more cable in the exchange.

I am a happy Whirlwind customer, and am not obligated in any way to say that.

The "Recognized Component Mark" is a type of quality mark issued by Underwriters Laboratories. It is placed on components which are intended to be part of a UL listed product, but which cannot bear the full UL logo themselves.[6] The general public does not ordinarily come across it, as it is borne on components which make up finished products.
