10/3 SJEOOW Portable Cord for Solar Power - Hot Water Systems


It's always exciting for us here at Wire And Cable Your Way to see the different types of wire and cable our customers use for solar power applications.

Recently, we received a few photos from our customer Roger in California whose company sells solar hot water systems.

Roger uses our 10/3 SJEOOW Portable Cord - 300v  (see above) which connects to the solar hot water system. Once connected the SJEOOW Cord helps bring power from the six solar PV panels (see below) down to the hot water system.


The SJEOOW is a very popular cord made up of a thermoplastic elastomer rubber jacket which is both durable and flexible.  The SJEOOW cable is outdoor rated and oil resistant.

Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) - A Word From Willie The Wire & Cable Guy

Many customers looking at our SEOOW & SJEOOW Portable Cords call in to Wire & Cable To Go asking what's Thermosplastic Elastomer (TPE) insulation?

Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) is a fine blend of polymers containing containing both thermoplastic & elastomeric properties.  When processed & combined these properties create a rubbery and plastic material.

Overall, thermoplastic elastomer is used in SEOOW & SJEOOW Portable Cords as an insulation jacket that contain both rubber & plastic characteristics.

According to Coleman Cable who pioneered the SEOOW & SJEOOW cable, prior to 1981 there were two basic types of cable - Rubber (SOW) & PVC (STOW).  Coleman created the SEOOW & SJEOOW by constructing the cable using Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) technology giving customers an excellent option of a cord containing the chemical resistance of PVC (plastic) & the flexible characteristics of rubber.

TPE gives customers in the commercial, industrial & construction fields a flexible portable cord that is durable, abrasion resistant,  light in weight, easy to strip & fully recyclable!
