Abrasion Resistance SO cord

If SO cables were always used as permanent power sources, abrasion resistance wouldn’t matter. You’d install equipment once, attach the cable, and leave it there for years. Water resistance would be a main advantage, but abrasion concerns would be minimal. The truth is that SO cable is often used as a temporary power source. It’s dragged over concrete to power a portable fan at a workshop. Swirled through the mud at every stop on a rock band’s tour schedule. And after all that abuse, it’s gathered up roughly, stuffed in the back of a storage unit, and expected to perform perfectly the next time.

SO cable takes a beating, and that’s why abrasion resistance is such a benefit. Sure, it’s nice that the product is water resistant, but if its casing broke every time it hit a snag, it would be purely impractical. By virtue of a strong outer fa├žade that protects the delicate inner wiring system, SO cable is heavy-duty and reliable. Thank goodness for that, because the last thing you want is for a hole to open up in the wire. When exposed to the elements, the cable would pose a fire hazard.

Why use SO cord

There are so many uses for SO cable. We have decided to name it the universal temporary power cord of the world. Of course we do not have the authority to make the name permanent,but it does seem like the perfect name for a product that’s called upon in so many cases. Thanks to the capabilities outlined below, SO cord is a favorite of everyone. Its uses include:

Toughness and durability – It is true that SO cable is likely not quite as tough as, say, tray cable. But that doesn’t keep it from successfully weathering tough outdoor conditions while powering generators, or holding up well for a town to town concert tour. The key to remember with this product is temporary power; though it’s likely strong enough to serve as a relatively reliable permanent power source, short-term use is its main purpose.

A question we frequently get is what is the difference between SO cable and SOOW cable. They are the same basic cable but the SOOW cable has an oil resistant jacket and conductors whereas the SO cable only has an oil resistant jacket. The voltage and temperature ratings are the same for either version. The flexibility is the same also. Most manufacturers are only making the SOOW cable now as it covers most needs and building both types is not really cost effective.
