SOOW Cable Properties
SOOW Portable Cord is recommended for use as portable electrical power and portable control wire cable. With its flexibility and resistance to the effects of abrasion, chemicals, weather and ozone, SOOW Portable Cord is excellent for heavy-duty cable service applications including industrial tools, portable lights, battery charters, and equipment that is typically exposed to oils, solvents, flame and grease. SOOW Portable Cord can also be used for ground tests and motor leads.
SOOW Portable Cord is rated to 600 volts and has a temperature range of –40ºC to 90ºC. These characteristics make SOOW Portable Cord an excellent choice for mitigating outdoor factors that would otherwise alter the performance of wire cable. For end users, this means greater flexibility for applications like push-button stations, fire alarm controls, and temperature control systems.
The letters SOOW denote particular properties of the cable:
S for Service
OO for Oil-resistant insulation and Oil-resistant jacket
W for Weather and Water resistance.
These properties make SOOW cable an extremely valuable component for any construction project, indoor or outdoor application where longevity is valued. SOOW Portable Cord that is UL-approved for permanent installation is often used in new construction and other applications where the wire will not need to be removed. This saves money at all levels of the construction process, from initial purchase through service invoice.
SOOW Portable Cord allows all parties to meet time and cost restrictions not only at the onset of the build schedule, but long after completion, and is a popular option for those looking to cut costs for the following reasons:
- Eliminates the need to run different types of cable to power each application.
- It is simple for manufacturers to construct – less time to manufacture means lower cost.
- UL-approved SOOW is suitable for permanent installation – saving long-term maintenance costs.
