Sycor Technology proudly offers an incredible variety of portable and power cords that are able to fit the needs of standard, specialized, and custom applications. Portable and power cords both serve the primary function of transmitting electrical power - a necessity in virtually every industry. These electrical cables are available in a multitude of different gauges, materials, and conductor configurations. Sycor, with additional stock and specifications, is able to provide a product that will satisfy your unique needs.

 

Portable cords may be used in commercial, residential and industrials applications. These electrical cords have resistances to oil, chemical, abrasion, heat and cold for both inside or outside environments. Some of these cables have the ability to be water or weather-resistant and water-submersible. These types of cabling products are very reliable for applications involving mills, mines, sports complexes or marinas.

 

The portable cords come in the standard extra hard service (600V) and junior service (300V). The next important aspect is the required temperature ratings because when it comes to the standard portable cords, there are three types to choose from. The first is the Thermoplastic Elastomer Jacket (TPE) portable cord that's rated for -50ºC to +105ºC. The second type of portable cord construction is the Thermoplastic Jacket with a -40ºC to +60ºC. The final standard portable cord and the most popular one, Thermoset Rubber (EPR) -40°C to +90°C.

Portable Cord Features

Sycor offers portable cords with:

  • Multiple conductors
  • Multiple configurations
  • National & international standards
  • Various shielding options
  • Multiple NEMA plug options
  • UL & CSA ratings

 

A portable cord (AKA portable cordage, flexible cord or extension cord) is an electrical multi-conductor that's used for temporary power connections that require flexibility. The portable cord can be installed into various applications, such as operating motors in small and large tools, equipment, power extensions, machinery and home appliances. The portable cords are offered in fewer AWG sizes than other traditional cables as they come in various conductor counts. With certain portables cords being able to carry up to 40 conductors, these electrical cables have the ability to meet the requirements for power transmission no matter how difficult.
