Uses and Applications of SJEOOW Portable Cord 300V
The SJEOOW Portable Cords are usually considered for their excellent mechanical properties. These cables are UL listed and are CSA certified. The SJEOOW stands for:
- S = Service or Hard Service Cord
- J = Junior Service Cord rated at 300
- E = Thermoplastic Elastomer - TPE OO = Oil Resistant Insulation and an Oil Resistant outside Jacket
- W = Weather and Water Resistance
Unique Technical Features of SJEOOW Portable Cord 300V The SJEOOW portable cables are constructed using annealed stranded bare copper conductors. 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. SJEOOW portable yellow seoprene cord 300 volts have a yellow coating for insulation that makes it highly visible in industrial settings. These types of cables have very good flexibility and lightweight, which makes them ideal for various applications.
Specific Applications of SJEOOW Portable Cord 300V SJEOOW portable cables have all the characteristics as that of SEOOW cords. The only difference lies in the fact that “J” indicates hard usage only at 300Volts. The type SJEOOW portable cords can be used for almost all applications that a SEOOW portable cord is used, provided that the voltage ratings are at 300 volts. These types of flexible cables can be used in applications specified by Article 400 of the National Electric Code and other related articles.
The SJEOOW 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 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 SJEOOW 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, SJEOOW portable cable makes the perfect choice. TPE enables these portable cords to endure extreme temperature and still retain their mechanical properties. Also, the SJEOOW 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 SJEOOW 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.
