What is the wire type and temperature rating for Tesys D contactors?

 Issue:
Customer wants to use 90C rated wires.  Wants to know if they can use this on the LC1D contactors.

Tesys D, LC1D

Environment:
all

Cause:
Catalog information incomplete

Resolution:

All IEC contactors were tested and UL listed for use with 75 Degree Celsius copper wires only for the Power circuit.  The product will list this information, in addition to the instruction bulletin (see attached)

They can use 90C rated wires, but must rate these per the 75C charts in the NEC guide.
