How Our Customers are Using SER Cable

service entrance to an external structure
Hey everyone, Willie the Wire Guy here. Lately, I’ve been keeping in touch with a number of our customers who have purchased wire and cable products for a couple of reasons: (1) to make sure they’re satisfied with their wire and cable, and (2) out of curiosity—to see how our products are being used. I’ve received awesome feedback, and I’m glad to see that people find our wire and cable performs at a high level.

It’s also been great to see the kinds of projects people are undertaking that have made them need our products in the first place. I thought it’d be a good idea to share this information for anyone who might be tackling a similar electrical project so that they can learn what type of wire others are using. Today, we’re going to focus on our Aluminum Service Entrance Cable with reinforcement tape (or SER Cable) and how Wire & Cable To Go buyers are putting it to use.

Wire And Cable Your Way would like to congratulate John Kielty for winning 3rd place in our February 2015 photo contest!

Although this photo may be a little “out of the box” we really loved the creativity of how the wire was being used.

John uses the copper in our 350 MCM Welding Cable Class K for tree sculptures.

Here is what John had to say:

My project is one of many copper tree sculptures embedded in unique rocks which my wife and I collect from the USA and Canada in our RV travels.
I use only 350 MCM Welding Cable Class K copper wire. Our friends and family seem to enjoy these gifts. These copper trees are set in drilled holes in a nice piece of Sierra Nevada quartz.

2nd Place Winner – 18/2 SJOOW Portable Cord for LED Lights

18/2 SJOOW LED Lighting

And the 2nd Place Winner of Wire And Cable Your Way’s April Photo contest is Matthew Tucci from Omaha, Nebraska!  Matthew sent in this photo above of his keyboard stand using our 18/2 SJOOW Portable Cord to power the LED Lights.

Here is what Matty had to say:

My name is Matty-T. I tour in the band Blu Simon. Last summer I decided to build a stand for my Moog synthesizer that would really stand out on stage. I used aluminum extrusion from MK North America to build the telescoping center support. The unique T-Slot shape worked well as lighting channel, which I filled with high density LED lights. I then fashioned a tray and legs out of steel. The steel pieces were coated in plasti-dip to grip and protect the instrument and floor. The tray includes a tightening mechanism to hold the keyboard in place as it rotates. The tray is mounted to the stand with a ball joint from Maui Mount that allows for angling toward the audience and movement throughout the performance. The cable (18/2 SJOOW) used to run the LED’s was purchased from Wire and Cable Your Way.

Thanks for the submitting your photo Matty and we will definitely have to check out your band when they come to town!

All of our SJOOW are cut to length and shipped out the same day ordered!

Until next time.

Your pal,
Willie

6 gauge wire 8 gauge wire thhn thwn-2

Wire And Cable Your Way offers a few different types of 6 gauge wire and 8 gauge wire used for solar applications.

The most popular 6 gauge & 8 gauge wires are our THHN/THWN-2.

Our customer, Stan, in Arizona sent us this photo above of a recent solar project he completed last summer.

Here is what Stan had to say:

Installed 3000 watts of solar this past summer.  Purchased 3 different color spools, 350′ each of #8 THHN for the connection to the Controller. Having access to different color coded wire made the job that much easier to install.  This also has #6 THHN wire that I purchased going to my critical load panel which is supplied by a battery back up, if the grid looses power.

#6 gauge wire - THHN for controller

All of our THHN wire is THWN-2 dual rated and offered in several different colors.
