Can HVL/cc switches and Motopact starters be wired with SIS wire?

In Motorpact we use THHN wire. Three reasons. 1. The skin is smaller in diameter allowing more conductor per bundle. 2. The skin is tougher than SIS so it is less prone to damage 3. It meets or exceeds the requirements for Arc Resistant applications. We do not have to use different wiring for non-arc controllers. We can use SIS wire between our terminal points and the relays if that is satisfactory. THHN is a better wire selection.
