Portable cords for electrical power connections
AutomationDirect’s line of multi-conductor cables now includes additional 600V and 300V portable hard-usage service cord. Type SOOW and SJOOW flexible power cables (also called service cord) feature multiple conductors used for electrical power connections requiring flexibility and resistance to a wide range of environmental factors. Typical applications include wiring for industrial machinery, large appliances, heavy duty tools, motors, and temporary electrical power and lighting for construction sites. Type SOOW and SJOOW portable cords are available in 18 to 10 AWG sizes and in 2-, 3-, or 4-wire configurations. The multi-conductor cable features bare copper conductors with Class K stranding. The outer jacket is constructed to provide abrasion and melting resistance; EPDM thermoset rubber insulation provides interior oil resistance. Available in 20 to 1,000-ft lengths, the type SOOW and SJOOW flexible power cables are rated for severe (600V) and junior severe (300V) service and is approved for outdoor or indoor use with a temperature range of -40 to 194 °F.
