Flat Extension Cords: The perfect solution for high traffic areas

FLAT EXTENSION CORDS

Perfect for bringing power to high traffic areas.

Perfect for bringing power to high traffic areas.

Flat Extension Cords are a must for Trade Shows, DeeJays, Events & Banquets, Stages, Exhibits and even homes where it is necessary to extend a cord across pedestrian traffic areas.

Common round cords are twice the thickness as flat cords and can cause a greater tripping hazard.  Flat Cords are easy to hide behind furniture, or underneath rugs or carpeting.

Our flat cords come with lighted female ends so you know when the power is on!

 

 

Flat Cords reduce the risk of tripping in high traffic areas.

CD Pro-Power Cords Adopt A Highway Excursion

This weekend the CD Pro-Power Cords crew tackled our new Adopt A Highway Mile on Highway 212 in Eden Prairie. Adopt a Highway Mile

Our mile was full of trash, but the weather was perfect and we all had fun.

The most common items lining the highway were plastic bags and sheets, bottles and cans, cardboard, paper wrappers and an odd amount of cut up credit card pieces.  We also found a variety of tools, a decorative light bulb and some cash.

We look forward to heading out there again this fall.

Ohm’s Law

Ohm’s law states, “The current in a circuit is directly proportional to the applied voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance of the circuit”.   Every electrical device has information on it to help a user determine its rated power using Ohm’s law.  Knowing this formula can help consumers find the right cord to meet their product’s need.

  • I – Stands for Intensity or Current, which is measured in Amps.  Current flows through conductors from negative to positive.
  • E or V – Some tables use E for Electromotive Force or V for Volts.  Volts measure the difference between two points in a circuit.  It’s the push behind the current flow through a circuit.
  • R – Resistance, which is measured in Ohms.  The amount of resistance determines how much current will flow through.  The higher the resistance, the less the current.
  • P or W – Some tables use P for Power or W for Watts.  This is the amount of current times the voltage level at a given point.

If you have two of the above factors, you can easily figure out the remaining two by using Ohm’s law.  For instance, say you have an appliance that takes 1100 Watts and 115 Volts and you’d like to know the Amps (or Current).  Simply go to the Current section in the table, find the equation that uses both Watts (P) and Volts (V) which is I = P/V.  Plug in the numbers and you’ll have it figured out.  In this case I = 1100/115 or I = 9.57.

Extension Cord Table Lamps

Extension Cord lamp created by designer Craighton Berman

Extension Cord Lamp created by designer Craighton Berman

Industrial designer Craighton Berman has put a unique spin on table lamps with his Coil Lamp.  The Coil Lamp is made from a 100’ 16 gauge extension cord that is coiled around an acrylic laser cut form.  The result is a simple, yet creative and fun, table lamp.

Consumers have the option of purchasing a Coil Lamp that is coiled by personally by the designer, or buying a Do-It-Yourself kit and making the lamp themselves.  For those looking to purchase a Do-It-Yourself kit, call CD Pro-Power Cords for a 100′ cord to complete the kit.

Coil lamps are available for purchase at Craighton Berman’s Website  http://craightonberman.com/coil.htmlExtension Cord Lamp Kit

Cord Identification

Cord Identification Markings

Cord Identification Markings

Portable Cord, used to make extension cords and power supply cords, is marked to let users know the exact type of wire they are dealing with.  The markings are universal in each country, and all wire should have them.  The information, or legend, on the cords identifies the gauge, number of conductors, temperature ratings, volts, and type of material.  The legend contains a series of letters that gives details about the makeup of the cord.  This information also appears on the cardboard jacket that extension cords are packaged in, which can be confusing to consumers unfamiliar with their meanings. Once someone knows these ratings, they will be able to choose the best cord for a specific job. Below are some of the more common letters found on wire and cords.

  • S – Service. This wire is rated for 600 volts.
  • J – Junior, or Junior Service.  This wire is built the same as S wire, however it is rated for 300 volts, and the jacket has less insulation.
  • T – Thermoplastic, or PVC compound used to make the insulation.
  • E – Elastomer.  Indicates compound developed to allow cold weather flexibility and all weather use.
  • O – Oil Resistant.  When there is only one O, it means that the outer jacket is oil resistant.
  • OO – Oil Resistant.  When there are two O’s, it means the outer jack of the cord is oil resistant as well as the insulation surrounding the conductors.
  • P – Parallel. Wires are parallel to each other; the cord is flat instead of round.
  • V – Vacuum.  This cord is designed for use on vacuum cleaners where there is constant movement, requiring the cord to be flexible.
  • W – All Weather. The cord can be used indoors and outdoors because it is water and weather resistant.

Knowing the meanings of the above letters, a consumer could look at a 16/3 SJTW cord and know that it has 3 conductors, and is a 16 gauge thermoplastic cord rated at 300 volts that can be used indoors and outdoors.
