Welding cables are typically used because they are flexible and versatile. Benefits that stem from the construction of finer strands of copper and EPDM or neoprene rubber jackets. In fact, these are generally more flexible than electrical wires or power cables.
|Application||Often used in demanding applications, welding cables are secondary voltage-resistance cables for welding tools or as power cables attached to generators and industrial machinery. For example, electric arc-welding tools typically rely on two separate cables for operation: one acts as the primary power source for the device while the other supplies a secondary power source. While welding cables may not power the generator, these are required for electrodes. Welding cables are ideal for usage in power supply applications where the voltage does not exceed 600 volts.|
