SOOW stands for:
S = Service Cord (600 Volts)
OO = Oil Resistant both inside insulation and outside jacket
W = CSA designation for weather/water resistance
TYPE SOOW Cable is for use in heavy-duty industrial applications where flexibility and durability is required. SOOW is designed for extra hard usage on industrial equipment, heavy tools, motor and welding leads, power extensions, portable machinery, sound equipment, portable stage lights, marine dockside power and mining applications. Constructed of color-coded synthetic oil, ozone and water resistant rubber (EPDM) insulation and an oil resistant thermoset chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) jacket, SOOW is rated for indoor/outdoor use.
SOOW flexible rubber cords carry a 600 volt rating. They are also manufactured as a 300 volt rated Junior Service cord designated as SJOOW. Using the key, a SJEOOW cord is a 300 volt (junior service) elastomer plastic oil resistant inner and outer jacket portable cord.
