Cables comes in all different shapes and sizes depending upon the demand of the application. Now all these electrical cables comes in a limited size lengths. To enlarge its length one has to attach an extension cable along with it. Electrical extension cords are typically made using portable cords rated for the task.
A portable cord (also known as portable cordage, flexible cord, or extension cord) is a cable with multiple conductors used for temporary electrical power connections requiring flexibility. The cord can be employed in a range of applications, such as operating motors in small and large tools, equipment, power extensions, home appliances, and machinery.
Portable cords endure abuse on a daily basis. Whether you use them for heavy-duty tools, industrial heaters or hospital equipment, they can suffer from heat, twisting, abrasion and so much more. Portable cords typically last 6-9 times offer you a variety of benefits.
Following are different types of portable cords used in the industry.
- TC-ER Flexible Cord
TC-ER Flexible Cord is a highly flexible, Extra Hard Usage cable suitable for many applications found indoors or outdoors, in raceways or direct burial. TC-ER Flexible Cord endures abuse on a daily basis. Whether it’s used for heavy-duty tools, industrial heaters or equipment, it can suffer from extreme temperatures (hot or cold), flexing, abrasion and chemical exposure.
- Yellow Portable Cords
Yellow portable cord is a highly flexible, Extra Hard Usage portable cord with excellent resistance to impact, cutting, abrasion, oils and most industrial chemicals. Features an integral fill, dual layered fiber reinforced jacket for added strength against twisting and pulling. Ideal for applications where cable tension is a concern.
- Black Portable Cords
Black portable cord is a highly flexible. Ideal for applications where cable tension is a concern. Black jacket allows for extreme all weather flexibility.
