A Type W conductor may be either a single conductor or a multi-conductor cable. Its applications vary depending on how many conductors are used—some make use of only one, while other Type W cables may have as many as 5 different conductors.

These cables are generally used in mining applications that are classified as light or medium-duty tasks. They may, however, serve as a power supply cable in heavy duty situations. Most of the time, Type W cables are used to provide power to portable and mobile devices, including motors, that will be used in mining projects.

Both 2-conductor and 3-conductor cables can be used with no grounding is required with the exception of a 3-conductor cable using a DC system, in which case one conductor is necessary. For 4 and 5-conductor cables, a ground is required.

These cables come in a variety of different sizes ranging from 1 AWG up to 500 AWG.
