Is my wiring legal ?

I found this on wiring coming from my main panel to a subpanel located 100 ft away. From the breaker in the main panel I have 115v across both leads but only 32v at subpanel. What type of wiring is this and is it still legal to use in Md? I was told no.

For an existing installation with an unknown installation date, it may have been code compliant when it was installed. To install it today, no, it wouldn't be code compliant. Is it legal? Have you had any wiring cops visit you recently? Does the cable say "Style U" or "Style R" on it?

The type of cable should have nothing to do with the voltages you are reading,more info on where and how you are reading these voltages,today's standards would require that cable to be 4 conductors.
