CABLE TYPE DESIGNATION

CERTIFIED AND STANDARDIZED

Conductive offers one of the most vertically integrated, comprehensive line-ups of North American and International power cords, each designed to international and national standards.

Electrical cable standardization exist to ensure that companies/organizations all conform to the same manufacturing rules with regards to construction, end application intended use, and identification naming codes. Many countries use their own standardized systems, such as the United States and Canada (tested by UL) and Brazil (tested by INMETRO/UCIEE).

INDEX

S = Hard Service Flexible Cord
SJ = Junior Hard Service Flexible Cord
T = Thermoplastic Insulation
O = Oil Resistant. “O” means only jacket is oil resistant; “OO” means jacket and conductor insulation are oil resistant
W = Moisture Resistant
D = Dry
H = Heater Cord
P = Parallel Cord
V = Vacuum Cable
N = Neoprene Insulation
NI = Non-integral, denotes insulated conductors and jacket are separate
R = Round Cable Construction
