Non-metallic sheathed NM-B cable is used in normally dry installations in residential wiring, as branch circuits for outlets, lighting and other residential loads. NM-B is rated at 600 Volts and although is is rated at a conductor temperature of 90 Degrees Celcius dry, it's ampacity is limited to 60 Degrees Celcius. It may be fished through masonry or tile walls, where not exposed or subject to excessive moisture or dampness. NM-B cables are Lead Free and RoHS compliant. This is equivalent to Romex NM-B.
