Portable cords are versatile, multi-conductor power cables designed primarily for temporary power connections. Due to their flexibility and durability, they're ideal for handheld tools, machinery, and portable equipment. Constructed to withstand tough environments, these cords often feature robust insulation and jackets resistant to oil, moisture, ozone, and abrasion. They're commonly used in construction sites, workshops, outdoor events, and many industrial settings. Specifications like "SOOW" or "SJOW" often accompany portable cords, indicating their insulation and jacket type, ensuring users choose the right cord for their specific needs, ensuring both safety and functionality.
