12/3 stow grey/yellow
The 12/3 stow grey/yellow cord has been designed with the latest technology giving it desirable characteristics that make it highly efficient. Users have found these cords to be very helpful. It comes with different colors, including grey and yellow. These cords are made using gradually heated and cooled copper that allows them have the desired hardness. The kind of tasks handled using these cords often require them to be very strong. These activities always involve high energy operations which ordinary cables cannot support. The manufacturers have always been focused on improving the quality of the cords, in terms of strength and efficiency.
The 12/3 stow grey/yellow cords have been designed to meet the UL 62 requirements. The cords have also been insulated using polyvinyl chloride (PVC) per UL 62. The PVC is a chemical compound responsible for the characteristics the cord has. This includes resistance to extreme weather conditions, abrasion and insulation. PVC also forms the outer jacket of the cord. Color-coded PVC is used to give the cord the outer grey/yellow colors.
The cord is highly flexible making it easily portable. One can easily fold it to fit into a smaller spaces for transportation. This feature also makes the cord difficult to break easily, therefore making it more durable. The 12/3 stow grey/yellow conductors are made with a solid copper conductor that is soft drawn, per ASTM B-174.
The12/3 stow grey/yellow cords are also oil resistant. Oil has been found to damage the molecular structure of the cords once they come into contact. This makes the cords less durable and therefore economically inefficient. The manufacturers have therefore had to come up with different ways to ensure the cords are oil resistant. The cords also have an acid and alkaline resistance feature, which protects them against corrosion that may come as a result of contact with the chemicals.
The 12/3 stow grey/yellow cords can withstand wide temperature ranges of between -20 ºC to 60 ºC. Therefore it can be effectively used in dry areas and even damp areas. It can also withstand very high voltages, up to 600 Volts. Unlike the ordinary cords, these cords can be used in machines that require very high voltage to operate.
The 12/3 stow grey/yellow cords have three conductors and are 12 AWG in size. They have 1.14mm/0.045 inches insulation thickness, with the outside diameter being 15.24mm/0.600 inches. They have three conductors with 65/30 conductor strands. They are also 0.211 Ibs per ft in weight, with 25 current Amps.
These cords have got a wide range of applications in real life, mainly because of their distinctive features. During events that require portable sound and lighting systems, the 12/3 stow cords have been of great use. These cords have also gained a wide range of applications in the motor industry, which normally involve hard usage with heavy tools. The cords can also be used in the washing machines and the floor maintenance equipment. Also, home and hospital equipment make use of these cords. With continued improvement, the cords are expected to come with more distinct features making them more desirable.
