1  Ampacities (Amps per conductor) are based on 30oC ambient temperature in air per the 1996 NEC, Table 400-5(A). Ampacities for 3/C and 4/C cords assume 1 conductor is used as a ground or neutral and does not carry current. Ampacities for 5/C cords assume 2 conductors are used as ground and neutral and do not carry current.

**  Long length reels available upon request. Consult local sales office.

NOTES: Also maybe manufactured as 105oC / -50oC SOOW now available with yellow jacket.
