What are the classifications of power cords according to the materials used?

Power cords, also known as power cords, equipment cords, power cords, connecting power cords, power cords, equipment power cords, etc. It is a conductor that transmits current, and the current transmission mode is point-to-point transmission. In terms of usage, power cords can be divided into DC power cords and AC power cords. There are many kinds of power cords, which can be divided into the following types according to the materials used:

Shielded and insulated power cords: All kinds of electrical equipment with mobile connections can be used in general occasions, and some are also suitable for the connection of electrical mobile equipment.


Rubber soft power cord: mainly used for connection of electric lighting, instrumentation, medium and light mobile appliances (household appliances, electric tools, etc.); most of them are AC 300C class, and the working voltage is AC 750V and below

Universal Rubber Sheathed Power Cord: The universal rubber sheathed power cord has a wide range of applications and can be applied to a variety of electrical equipment that requires mobile connections, including the connection of electrical mobile equipment used in various sectors of the industrial and agricultural insulated power cord industry.


General-purpose rubber and plastic power cords: used for power, lighting, telecommunication equipment and instrument connections and internal power cord installation circuits for electrical devices with a rated AC voltage of 450V ~ 750V and below.

Rubber power cords for mining: mainly used for rubber power cords for mining industrial ground and underground equipment, involving rubber power cords for mining electric drills, rubber power cords for communication and lighting equipment, rubber power cords for mining and transportation, rubber power cords for cap lamps , Underground mobile substation power supply rubber power cord.

In addition to the above, there are also shock-resistant rubber power cords, drilling rubber power cords, etc.; because the specifications and standards of AC power used in each country are different, the safety certification standards for power cords are different in each country. For example: CCC (3C) certification in China, UL certification in the United States, BS certification in the UK, SAA certification in Australia, VDE certification in Europe, etc.
