Power Cable - Facts and Information

Information Source:Henan Huadong Cable Co., Ltd Release date:2014-11-04

There are many different sizes and shapes of power cable that can get very complicated. There are single conductor and multi conductor cables, along with personal and industrial power cables. They each have their own advantage designed for a certain application by engineers with years of expertise.

Single conductor power cables include welding, DLO, locomotive, entertainment and stage lighting cable. They each have differences such as voltage, amps, insulation types and flexibility options which each add to the pricing of the cables.

Welding cable is the cheapest and most popular of that group. It comes with flexible copper strands and a rubber jacket rated for 600 volts. The DLO cable has less flexible strands but carries 2000 volts with tinned copper strands and a rubber jacket. DLO is much more expensive because it carries more power. I suggest talking to your wire sales person and asking them what the best idea is for your specific application.

Some multi conductors include portable cord, SOOW cable, Type W, Type G-GC and even extension cords. These cord products almost always have a rubber jacket to help with outdoor weather and ware and tare. They usually come flexible to start with but there is also an extra flexible power cable option for industrial use that has a more rugged jacket as well.

SOOW is the same as an extension cord before the plugs are added to the ends. It is the bulk cable used for portable cord to supply power to tools and generators on job sites. Some companies make cords out of the wire and some just use it for a personal jon where power is required.

There are so many power cables out there that I don't recommend making the final decision yourself if you are unsure. Tell you electrician or your sales person what you need for power and the conditions it will be in to help you find the perfect and cheapest power cable for your application.
