Portable cords provide temporary power in a wide variety of applications and industries. You can always tell what characteristics portable cords have based on the letters in their name. SJTOOW power cables are a type of junior service portable power cable made with a thermoplastic jacket. PVC is the type of thermoplastic material commonly found in this type of power cord.
SJTOOW cables are designed to provide both power and flexibility. This type of flexible power cord is suitable for use with heavy-duty tools, portable appliances, equipment, portable lights, and power extensions. These cables have a maximum temperature of +60°C and a voltage rating of 300V (all junior service cords have a 300V rating. Non-junior service cords like SOOW are typically rated at 600V). SJTOOW cords are also water, alkali, ozone, abrasion, and oil resistant. This resistance to various elements makes them an optimal choice when powering equipment. They can also be customized to meet individual needs.
Our Custom SJTOOW Cable Solution
One company that specialized in creating ergonomic motorized carts experienced a roadblock when they couldn’t find a power cord that met their needs. However, things turned around when they came to Allied Wire and Cable for a custom portable cord solution. Because of the application's environment, this customer knew they needed heavy duty and oil-resistant insulation and jacketing, so they first considered an SJOOW cord. However, they also needed a somewhat flexible cord and considered an SJTOW cord as well. Luckily, our knowledgeable sales rep was able to help design the perfect cable.
This customer needed an SJTOOW cable with TPE insulation and a PVC jacket. It needed to feature a NEMA 5-15 male grounding plug on one end and an IEC 60320C13 female connector on the other. Because this is not a combination available on a standard portable cord, it had to be a custom job. In addition to the special construction, the design also called for a custom print legend. With a little help from their dedicated account representative at Allied Wire and Cable, the customer got the exact custom SJTOOW power cable they wanted. They were pleased with the quality, lead time, reasonable pricing, and excellent service.
