18/3 SOOW black cable is a heavy duty power supply cable often used in industrial and mining sectors. It is an 18/3 cable because its size is 18 AWG and it comes with 3 conductors. The cable has the capacity to supply up to 600 volts of power at 10 amps. It is oil and water resistant and for this reason often used in oily and wet areas. The cable is able to perform in the harshest environments because it has been made of top notch quality materials. It contains a conductor mad of fully annealed stranded bare copper, an insulation made of ethylene propylene (EPDM) and a jacket made of chlorinated polyethylene (CPE). The cable weighs only 84 Lbs per 1000 FT and thus portable to move about with.
