Type W and SOOW Capabilities
This cable is a Type W and a Service Cord Oil-Resistant and Weather/Water-Resistant (SOOW) cable. That means it’s similar to an extension cord and offers a portable power supply in permanent and temporary applications. The Type W designation makes it more rugged than other SOOW cables.
WesBell Type W cable is dual insulated with ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM)/Super Vu-Tron rubber insulation. It also uses high-heat resistance (RHH) and rubber insulation with heat and water resistance (RHW) to make it a 2,000-volt heavy-duty cable. An open polyester braid reinforcement is applied between the insulation and jacket for mechanical strength.
Our Type W cable is a heavy-duty cable designed for severe environmental conditions, including getting run over by heavy equipment. It’s popular for portable power systems, sound systems, mobile communications vans, theaters, night clubs and spotlights. It’s also an outdoor power supply cable for large portable power systems.
This 3/0 SOOW cable features a 3/0 American Wire Gauge (AWG) rating, one conductor and 259 strandings. There is no ground wire, but it supports 350 amps of power and 2,000 volts. Its outer diameter reaches .93 square millimeters.
We sell our Type W 3/0 SOOW cables by the foot, so you only have to buy what you need. Bulk pricing is available for quantities over 100 and 500.
