2/4 SOOW Black Portable Cord 600V Non UL

Allowable Ampacity For 2/4 SOOW Portable Black Cord-600V Non UL: 80 Amps


SOOW is water and weather-resistant service cable with an oil-resistant jacket and insulation. It is a reputable low-cost portable power cable that offers superior resistance to abrasion. The cable famously stays intact when in contact with a hot surface, making it perfect for tough applications, including compressors, industrial machinery, push-button remotes, industrial control systems, and water purification systems. SO is commonly used in mills, marinas, mines, ,industrial, commercial and residential facilities. The cable exhibits premium flexibility and is resistant to chemicals, oil, water, sunlight, and air. The voltage rating is set at 600. The temperature range is -40°C to 90°C. SOOW maintains its flexibility in both hot and cold applications.

2/4 SOOW – BLACK 600V Non UL

SOOW wires are portable cords with a wide range of industrial applications. SOOW is an acronym for oil and water resistant service wires with sturdy insulation and jacketing. 2/4 SOOW black cable is one of the many examples of the many SOOW cords. This portable cable is water and weather resistant and can operate in almost any kind of environment. The 2/4 SOOW cable has some unique attributes which differentiates it from other SOOW cables.

Operating temperature range

Having a cable that operates in a wide temperature range is a huge plus as it reduces repeat purchases as cables with a shorter range of operating temperatures easily heat up and melts. This 2/4 SOOW black cable operates between -400 C to 900 C. That’s a range of 1300 C.This is to say it can easily install it for use in wet and dry areas without having to worry about the cable being deformed or altered in terms of performance due to temperature changes during operation. For all SOOW cables, this is a necessary requirement by MSHA and RoHS. It means this cable is very safe for use.

Moisture and weather resistance

Humidity and adverse weather conditions could affect the structure of a cable and ultimately deteriorate its performance. It is thus imperative to work with one that is neither affected by water, moisture nor weather conditions. The 2/4 SOOW black cable has been jacketed with Chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) which is well known for its excellent features. CPE is used as a jacketing material because of its resistance to weather, water, abrasion and even chemicals do not interfere with its structure.

Extreme sunlight and ultra violet light often affect the structure and performance of some cables. But that is not the case with this 2/4 SOOW cable because it has a protective feature to take care of that. The CPE jacket works perfectly to ensure the cable is not affected by UV and sunlight.

Flexibility and durability

Flexibility is an important feature for this cable because it determines the ease of transportation and the ease of installation. This portable cable is made of 4 fully annealed stranded bare copper conductors which not only supply transmission at great speed but also make the cable highly flexible. The 2 AWG conductors have an outside diameter of 1.465 inches allowing the cable to easily fit into ducts and cable trays. With a stranding of 133/ 0.0223 the cable weighs 1639 lbs. This sizing allows for easy installations and termination. Its light weight so it can be rolled and moved about from one place to another easily.

Safety, Approvals and certifications

This cable is safe for use and does no harm to the environment. The 2/4 SOOW black is designed to resist oil and water. This makes it safe as it does not let it water, moisture and industrial solvents which would interfere with transmissions and cause havoc. The cable is also resistant to chemicals and impact which are common happenings in its areas of application. The factors enable this portable power cable to defy time despite the harsh environments in which it operates in. For safety purposes, it has been taken through a number of tests and approved by;

  • RoHS
  • NEC Article 400
  • NEC 501. 140 class 1 division 2
  • MSHA


SOOW portable cables are made of a fully annealed stranded bare copper conductors which is good for heavy duty industrial service systems. This one is also used for heavy duty applications in industrial and marine locations. Its construction formula makes it ideal also for light and medium power supply to appliances.

If you are thinking of a cable that will supply power to your office equipment, generators, small motors and heavy duty equipment, then you should consider the 2/4 SOOW black cable. Because of its flexibility it is also used for controls such as for push button remotes. It is also used in systems for water purification, industrial machinery and handy compressors.
