G-6-4C - 6 Gauge Multi-Conductor Type G Portable Power Cord
Our G-6-4C 6 AWG cable is part of our Power Cable and Portable Cord line. The G-6-4C cable is composed of 4 stranded bare copper conductors, EPDM insulation, and a black CPE jacket. This cable has a temperature range of -40°C to +90°C and is CSA approved. This flexible cable has excellent impact resistance and the chlorinated polyethelene (CPE) jacket enables the cable to withstand exposure to oil, acid, alkalies, heat, moisture, and most chemicals.
Type G Cable Construction
Each conductor has multiple strands of pure annealed bare copper wire. Strand sizes vary from 20 American Wire Gauge (AWG) for large diameter wires to 28 AWG on smaller conductors.
Type G cables use cross-linked synthetic ethylene, propylene, and diene comonomer (EPDM) rubber insulation. This material has excellent resistance to heat, cold, ozone, acids, alkalis, rain, and snow. The insulation retains its flexibility at low temperatures and has good abrasion resistance.
Type G cables have the same number of ground wires as primary conductors. The cross-sectional area of the ground wires is relatively large, and in total equates to roughly the same cross-sectional area as that of the primary conductors. Multiple ground wires reduce the possibility of ground wire failure in critical applications. Ground wires have green EPDM insulation.
The jacket is chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) with fillers and reinforcement to ensure the cable has a circular profile. CPE rubber resists chemical, oil, acid, alkali, and alcohol attack and has excellent weathering properties. It's flame-resistant and waterproof.
Type G Cable Applications
You can use this cable as a portable power supply cable for three- and four-wire AC power supplies that require grounding. It's suitable for industrial and mining use and has Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) listing. Specific applications include use as a temporary power supply and for powering portable heavy-duty mining equipment including conveyors, cranes, mobile equipment, electromagnets, and oil drilling equipment.
Difference Between Type G, Type G-GC, and Type GC Cables
Type G cable is one of several types of three-phase AC heavy-duty mining and industrial portable power cords available from AWC. While also classified as portable power cables, type G-GC cables only have 2 ground wires and 2 ground checks as well as 3 conductors. Type GC cable is almost identical to type G cables, except that a yellow ground-check conductor replaces one of the ground wires. You wire the ground check conductor to a supervisory circuit that trips power to the cable if the ground check conductor breaks or goes open circuit.
