If you’ve been looking for a new or replacement detachable POWER CABLE, you might have seen an alphabet soup of abbreviations for the cable jacket type. Understanding these abbreviations will help you choose the correct power cable for your application.
Each of these letters designates a usage rating derived from the National Electrical Code. Here is the most common nomenclature used for power cable jackets:
S—Service Grade (Extra-Hard Service Grade if not followed by J, V or P); normally rated to 600V
J—Junior Grade; a “J” cord is rated for hard service up to 250-300V
V—Vacuum Cleaner Cord; light-duty cable
P—Parallel Cord; light-duty zip cord
T—Thermoplastic; most often polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
E—Elastomer; a copolymer that adds flexibility, especially in sub-freezing conditions
O—Oil-Resistant outer jacket
W—Outdoor; stands up to moisture and sunlight
Generally, the combination of these letters defines the various cable jacket types. The chart below is a glossary of the most common types in North America.
