    FAQ's

    What is SOOW cable?

    SOOW cable is a versatile and durable portable control cable designed for various industrial, commercial, and outdoor applications. The acronym SOOW stands for:

    • S - Service Cord (Heavy Duty)
    • OO - Oil-resistant insulation and Oil-resistant outer jacket
    • W - Weather and Water-resistant
    What are the common applications of SOOW cable?

    SOOW cables are flexible, durable, and resistant to harsh industrial environments. Common applications include:

    • Machinery in industrial environments
    • Outdoor events
    • Construction sites
    • Temporary power setups
    • Portable tools and equipment
    • Lighting fixtures in outdoor and industrial settings
    • Control systems
    • Power lighting and sound equipment in the entertainment industry
    • Emergency and temporary power needs
    What are the particular applications of 6/3 SOOW?
    • Powering heavy equipment
    • Portable generators
    • Construction sites
    • Outdoor events
    • Welding machines
    • Temporary power installations
    Is SOOW Cable Tray-Rated?

    SOOW cable is not typically tray-rated despite having some common characteristics like oil resistance. Tray cables usually have thicker jackets and more robust insulation.

    Is SOOW Outdoor-Rated?

    SOOW cable is rated for outdoor installations, as outlined in the letter "W'' in its name, which stands for weather and water resistance. The cable is resistant to moisture, UV, and temperature fluctuations. The SOOW jacket is additionally resistant to oil. However, you should pick a cable with a better UV-resistant characteristic for installations directly exposed to sunlight.

    What is the difference between black and yellow insulation for SOOW Cables?

    Yellow SOOW cables are more visible than black ones, so they can be used in safety-critical environments. Black cables can absorb more heat than yellow cables when exposed to sunlight, which might be a consideration in outdoor applications. You can also choose to use black or yellow cable for color-coding purposes.
