Uses and Applications of SEOOW Portable Cable 600V
SEOOW portable cables are very flexible and have excellent mechanical properties. These cables are UL listed and is CSA certified. The SEOOW stands for:
- S = Service or Hard Service Cord rated at 600 Volts
- E = Thermoplastic Elastomer - TPE
- OO = Oil Resistant Insulation and an Oil Resistant outside Jacket
- W = Weather and Water Resistance
Unique Technical Features of SEOOW Portable Cable 600V The SEOOW portable cables are constructed using annealed stranded bare copper conductors. T*prene Oil resistant Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) is used for insulation. A flame-retardant Yellow Seoprene Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) of Class 36 is used for jacketing. The cable has great resistance towards abrasion, ozone& sunlight exposure, chemicals, oil and water in harsh environments. SEOOW portable yellow seoprene cord 600 volts have a yellow coating for insulation that makes it highly visible in industrial settings. These types of cables have very good flexibility, lightweight, non-marking and excellent molding characteristics.
Specific Applications of SEOOW Portable Cable 600V The SEOOW portable cable applications include wiring for industrial machinery, heavy duty tools, motors, temporary electrical power and lighting installations for construction sites and outdoor applications. These cables are specially designed for applications that require extra hard usage cable with excellent mechanical properties. Typical applications for these types of portable cables include battery chargers, portable machinery, portable sound equipment, push button remote control systems, motor controls, stage equipment and lighting, industrial control and robotic systems.
The SEOOW portable cables are also approved for applications with submersion in water. The oil resistant elastomer insulation and jacketing enables the cord to make it suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use. Wherever there is a requirement for frequent handling and moving for the cable as in industrial equipment or construction tools, SEOOW portable cable makes the perfect choice. TPE enables these portable cords to endure extreme temperature and still retain their mechanical properties. Also, the SEOOW portable cables can perform well even in low temperatures as well as high temperatures. The temperature rating has been set between –50°C and 105°C.
The benefits of TPE compounds provide a tough portable cord which is easier to strip, lighter in weight and completely recyclable. These features make it ideal for using in indoor as well as outdoor temporary power applications such as compressors, portable tools and heavy machinery tools. Type SEOOW portable cords are also suited for flex applications in harsh environments where high degree of oil resistance and extended service life are in great demand. The cords will perform their best at the operating temperature up to 105°C and voltage ratings at 600 volts. Under these operational conditions, the SEOOW portable cables can be safely used no matter what the weather conditions and terrain are like.
Another use for type SEOOW portable cords are seen in lighting, mining & off road and portable power applications. These types of flexible cables can be used in applications specified by Article 400 of the National Electric Code and other related articles.
