Multi-Conductor Cable

Flexible Portable Cord\n(Portable Power Cables/ SO Cord / SJ Cord / SOW Cord / Hard Usage Cord)


Type SJEOOW Cable - 300 VAC, 18 to 10 AWG



Type SEOOW Cable - 600 VAC, 18 to 10 AWG



Type W Cable - 2000 VAC, 8 AWG



These multi-conductor power cables can be used in a variety of industrial environments both indoors and outdoors. Typical applications for these flexible power cables include wiring for industrial machinery, large appliances, heavy duty tools, motors, mining cable and temporary electrical power and lighting for construction sites.

These flexible portable power cords are also referred to as: SO cord, SO cable, SJ cord, SJ cable, SOW cable, SOOW cable, SEOOW cable, cable power cord, flexible power cable, hard service cord, hard usage cord, mining cable, multiconductor cable, four conductor cable or 2-,3-, or 4-wire power cable.

These flexible power cables can be suspended, but must be connected to devices and to fittings so that tension is not transmitted to joints or terminals. When used to connect utilization equipment such as power generators, these flexible multiconductor cables must have an attached plug to allow frequent interchange.

These types of portable power cables are NOT permitted to be run through walls, structural ceilings, suspended/dropped ceilings, floors, or to be attached to building surfaces.

Commonly used designations for flexible cable power cord include:
  • S = Stranded (or Hard Service Cord) (600 Volt Cords)
  • J = Junior Service Cord (300 Volts)
  • E = Elastomer
  • OO = Oil Resistant inside insulation and outside jacket
  • W = Weather/Water resistant
    (NOTE: This W designation is NOT the same as the UL Type W Portable Cord that is also available)

300 VAC Flexible Power Cable - Type SJEOOW300 VAC Flexible Power Cable - Type SJEOOW

Type SJEOOW cord (SJ cord) is ideal for flex applications in harsh environments where the highest degree of oil resistance and extended service life are essential. Typical SJEOOW cable applications include wiring for industrial machinery, large appliances, heavy duty tools, motors, and temporary electrical power and lighting installations for construction sites.
  • 18 to 10 AWG multi-conductor cable
  • 2, 3 and 4-wire power cable configurations
  • 20 ft., 50 ft. and 250 ft. coil/spool lengths
600 VAC Flexible Power Cable - Type SEOOW600 VAC Flexible Power Cable - Type SEOOW

Type SEOOW cord is ideal for the same flex applications as Type SJEOOW, but requiring higher voltages. Type SJEOOW cables and SEOOW cables are permitted for use as specified by Article 400 and related articles of the National Electrical Code (NEC).
  • 18 to 10 AWG multi-conductor cable
  • 2, 3 and 4 wire power cable configurations
  • 20 ft., 50 ft. and 250 ft. coil/spool lengths
2000 VAC Flexible Power Cable - Type W2000 VAC Flexible Power Cable - Type W

Typical applications for Type W cords include industrial and light- to medium-duty mining cable applications; heavy-duty service as power supply cable; AC systems (grounded and ungrounded); mobile and portable electrical equipment; motor and battery leads.
  • 8 AWG multi-conductor cable
  • 4 wire power cable configuration
  • 10, 20, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150 and 250 ft. coil/spool lengths
