SOOW Black Portable Cord 600V

SOOW Black Portable Cord 600V is a special type of SOOW cable. SOOW cables are a group of cables which exhibit very hard service life and can last long in such harsh environments. The SOOW cables are also known for their oil resistant jacket and insulation that contributes to their durability. SOOW cables are water and weather resistance.

Our SOOW Black Portable Cord has conductor made from copper wire which is fully stranded and annealed. It has a class K stranding as per the ASTM B 174 with 18AWG-2AWG. It is insulated with Ethylene Propylene, EPDM which is premium grade and an excellent oil resistance. Its water, oil and sunlight resistant jacket is made using Chlorinated Polyethylene, CPE material. The cable is applicable for use in relatively harsh environments such as in push buttons, industrial machineries and water systems.

Good premium flexibility
Resistance towards abrasion, chemicals, oil, water, sunlight and ozone.

Conductor

SOOW black cord is an excellent portable cable which meets all the needs of the customer. A good cable is primarily determined by the type of conducting material used. Our cable has copper wire conductor which is stranded and fully annealed. The conductor is often annealed through heat treatment to alter with its structure, both chemical and physical in order to make the conductor harder, more ductile, soft and flexible. To further increase the flexibility of the conductor, it is stranded. Stranding is a plus since it also reduces the resistance of the cable hence preventing excess power loss.
Copper conductor is the best material for conduction compared to other materials used in conduction because: one, copper has the best electrical conductivity. The good conductivity is contributed to by its partially filled outermost energy band that creates room for more electrons to carry electrical current.

Second, copper wire has a reliable tensile strength. Its tensile strength helps in preventing service interruptions and failures since it is able to resist nicks, stretching, creep and breaks. Its good creep resistance prevents it from loosening at joints hence guarantees a tight connection at joints. Third, copper has good heat conductivity a property that enables it to dissipate heat that builds up in the system thus preventing the risk of melting that occurs to conductors and insulators.

Copper wire is also very flexible with high ductility thereby easy to install without any special tools since it can be folded to fit in ducts.

Insulation

Our SOOW portable black cable has an Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, EPDM. EPDM is an organic compound, synthetic and rubber in nature. Insulation protects the conductor from the harsh chemical and physical factors that may otherwise poison and destroy it. Insulation also protects the user and the environment from electrocution and fire accidents.

EPDM is an elastomer and thus able to resist fuels such as diesel, gasoline and motor oil due to its plastic nature. It is also very elastic with good tensile strength which gives it the ability to resist breaking when great tension is applied to it. Its good mechanical strength also resists sunlight, ozone, oxygen, aging, water, acids, alkalis and weather conditions. The flexibility of the EPDM contributes to its ease for portability since it can be fitted in cable trays.

Jacketing

SOOW Portable Black cable has a distinctively black external jacket that binds the insulated conductors together. The jacketing material is Chlorinated Polyethylene, CPE. CPE is a thermoplastic polymer which is available in a thermostat or cross-linked version. Its durability is contributed to by its very good chemical and flame resistance. The jacket is also hardy and can withstand physical aggression applied on it.It has premium flexibility and its flexibility remains viable even in extremely cold environments.

Application

SOOW Portable Black cable has wide physical and chemical properties that qualify it to serve in different environments. With the 600V rating it can be used in push buttons of remotes. Its good water and oil resistant jacket and insulator make its suitable to be used in water purification systems since submerging the cable in water does not affect it.

The cable is also applicable in making handy compressors and in industrial machinery. This is made possible by the mechanically strong jacket which can resist the oils and acids produced by the machines as well as the physical force applied to it.

Approvals and Certification

For SOOW Portable Black Cord to qualify to be an internationally recognized quality cables, it had to be approved to have met the standards of the following organizations;

• National Electric Cord
• Mine safely and Healthy Administration
• Restriction of Hazardous Substance Directive, RoHS compliant
• Article 400 of the NEC

FAQ SOOW Black Portable Cord 600V


Is the SOOW black portable cord really strong?


The strength of the cord is in the rubber that is used to make the cord and in this case, it is made of superior quality Seoprene rubber.  Therefore, you get a product that is cheaper than other cords in this grade, but with a superior tensile strength, an easier strip facility for better installations and more flexibility. So yes, it can be used for your product provided that it meets with the specifications.


How do I know whether the SOOW black portable cord is the correct cord for my project?


One look at the cord should be enough to tell you whether this is what you need. However, if you are new to the world of cables, then here is the code decoded for you



  • S is for Service Grade and inthis case it is designed for extra hard use.

  • The lack of a T or a J after S means that the material of the jacket is Thermoset rubber.

  • OO means the jacket and the insulation are both oil resistant

  • W indicates that the cord is resistant to weather and water


How is a portable cord different from a power cable?


Usually a portable cord will be a flexible and moveable cord which you can carry around with you. These are not intended for permanent installations, althoughthey can handle the job if you needed it to. The flexibility is determined by the copper stranding and the thickness of the jacket (which is usually less than power cables).


What are the typical applications that use SOOW Black Portable Cord?


You can use them in environments that are harsh, such as mining, construction work, oil rigs, manufacturing units and similar facilities.  However, they are also used in places where the environment is not so harsh, such as stadiums, amusement parks, studios and similar places.  You can even use them for residential purposes if you want to.


How do I know that your product is superior to others in the market?


All our products are manufactured as per industry standards when specified. Moreover, you will find in the long run that they are durable and perform very well.  However, you can do a simple test yourself and compare the cross-section with cords and cables from other brands.  We encourage you to buy only if you are satisfied with what you see.
