What’s the Difference Between SOOW, SEOOW, and STOW Portable Cord?

And what does that J mean?Willy_lasso-768x683

 

Buying flexible portable cord can be a confusing process—the existence of several different types of SO cord makes it hard to choose the right one. To help anyone going through this process, we’ve compiled a quick cheat sheet to explain the differences between them.

First, let’s take note of the similarities: each of these multi-conductor power cables can be used in a variety of applications that require wiring with superior flexibility and durability such as portable tools and equipment, portable appliances, small motors, and associated machinery.

We love learning about all the different types of projects our customers are working on.

With thousands of customers stemming from all different parts of the country we are fortunate enough to speak with such an eclectic group of people working on such a wide range of projects.

We thought it would be nice to share a few examples below of how some of our customers apply our wire & cable.

Please note, every project and application is different and we always recommend double checking with a certified electrician/technician before making a purchase to be on the safe side:)

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!
