SJEOOW Portable Yellow Cord 300V
SJEOOW is one of the most common type of light duty portable cables used in a wide range of applications of 300v. If you’re looking for a general purpose cable to meet your everyday requirements then this is the cable to consider. SJEOOW is an acronym insinuating a card service cord (S) which can effectively carry out the functions of a junior service cord (J). It has a PVC thermoplastic elastomer jacket (E), an oil resistant insulation (OO) and a weather/water resistant coating (W). This cable is appropriate for use in small and large businesses, residential and industrial applications.
Key features of the SJEOOW cord
• 18 AWG-10 AWG
• Fully annealed stranded copper conductor
• Water and Oil resistant insulation and jacket
• High flexibility
• Yellow color cord for enhanced visibility in all settings
• Flame and sunlight retardant jacket and insulation
• For use in outdoor and indoor applications
Portable SJEOOW cord has a copper conductor. The conductor is stranded, bare and fully annealed. Stranding makes the conductor strong to withstand the tension involved in rolling and installation of cables. The stranding is done in accordance with the requirements of class K stranding of ASTM B174 and adds to the flexural strength of the conductor. Annealing on the other hand improves the conductivity and ductility of the conductor so that it doesn’t develop weaknesses when subjected to a punishing environment. This conductor works effectively in an environment of between -600 and 105oC extremes.
Insulation plays a big role on industrial grade cables like the SJEOOW portable cord. The insulation protects the cable handler from electrocution and keeps the cable safe from a wide range of damaging physical and chemical attacks. The cables insulation is made an oil and water resistant thermoplastic elastomer. This also keeps the SJEOOW cord safe from industrial chemicals, abrasion, weather and depreciating effects of sunlight. Moreover, it is colored in bright shades which improves its visibility even in an environment with low visibility. It is therefore ideal for a poorly lite high traffic environment.
The cable jacket is the ultimate protection from hard knocks. Basically a shield against abrasive forces. SJEOOW portable cord has a jacket made of a yellow colored thermoplastic elastomer. This is the ultimate jacket for a light duty industrial grade cable like this. It can take abrasive impulses from tools without developing scratches and lines of weaknesses. It also protects the portable cord from sunlight, water, oil, ozone and industrial chemicals.
Another appealing attribute of this jacket is perhaps the fact that it is tough yet flexible. Seoprene thermoplastic elastomers can bend and twist without developing weaknesses. Hence, this cable can be folded for transportation with ease and twisted through ducts and tray without fears of the jacket wasting away. The bright yellow coating makes it easy to identify in a cable tray.
Industrial approvals and applications
Industrial approvals and certifications are a sure ways of determining the quality of wire and cable products like the SJEOOW portable cord. This cord like all Nassau national cables has been taken through many tests in line with the requirements of appropriate international standards organizations regulations and proven safe for use explained in this article. The cables approved as per the following regulations:
• UL Standard 62
• NEC 501.140 Class I Div. 2
• CSA 22. 2 No. 49
• NEC Article 400
• Federal Spec #JC580B
SJEOOW portable cord can be put to a wide range of application requiring between 300 volts and 600 volts. It can be used with residential applications, commercial applications and industrial applications. Since it is water and oil resistant it can work well as a marine cable with ships and oil rigs. The most common applications of the SJEOOW are:
• Power distribution in a residential or commercial set up
• Industrial tools
• Motor vehicle
• Industrial control systems
• Portable handy tools
• Machines with moving parts
• Generator wire.
This cable is available in AWGs of between 18 and 10. AWG is American wire gauge, a conventional way of grading cables with regards to their sizes. 18 AWG is about a millimeter diameter while 10 AWG is about 2.5 millimeters diameter. The minimum length that you can buy is 10m and the maximum length you can buy in one purchase is 1000 meters.
