Aside — 99 NEC 200-6(e) and 250-119(c) seem to correspond with the multiconductor-cable “no white or green” individual-conductor coding to be field-reidentified as grounded and grounding conductors… with the usual disclaimer ”where conditions of maintenance and supervision ensure that only qualified persons will service…”

Joe, Tray cable comes in all sizes from #18 or smaller to 500kcmil and larger. It can have 2 to more than 50 conductors. It comes with or without grounding conductors. Some is color coded and other is numbered on all black conductors. Most of it that I have seen has a black outer jacket and a very close resemblance to NM. Don

Thanks for the reply. I have never seem cable tray before, so this is a new one on me. Is this stuff pretty common? Meaning, do you use it, or see it a lot?
Thanks for the links. I had read previously after it was suggested this maybe tray cable, that this stuff is suitable for direct buriel, now I am sure that it is. That would make good sense since this was servicing a sub panel in a detached garage and I could not verify it was running in conduit to the garage.
