They are permitted for use as specified by Article 400 and related articles of the National Electrical Code. They can also be used for special applications/locations as outlined in NFPA Paragraph 501.140 Class 1 Division 1 & 2 and Paragraph 502.140 Class II Division 1 & 2. SOOW Flexible Cords are also UL® and c(UL)® listed for water resistance.
Two, three, four, or five flexible stranded copper conductors.
Bare flexible stranded copper conductors are insulated with heat-, moisture- and oilresistant
