Can this power cord be used to connect to a 12 kw portable generator to a house for emergency power

Asked by Radman April 7, 2020
2
Answers

Yes, this wire is rated for up to 600 volts, and at 50 amps. My generator makes 12000 watts, and this is the correct cord for that application.

Will this fit in a half inch cgb?

Asked by Chris March 16, 2018

Answers

The outer diameter is just over 3/4 of an inch, 0.780 inches. You would need to measure the device to be sure but it is substantially larger than a half inch in diameter.

is this solid or stranded wire?

can you use this for a 40 amp hot tube

Asked by backfire December 6, 2017
1
Answer

No. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed.

Can this be used as service cable? If so, can it be used overhead, attached to a steel guy wire?

What size hole will be needed to install 8-4 cord?

Asked by SR August 11, 2016
3
Answers

Outer diameter is 0.780 inches, a bit over 3/4 of an inch. A 7/8 or 1-inch hole should be fine. This cable is designed for portable use and not intended to be used through walls.

Why is it only good for 30 amps if it is #8 wire?

Asked by Ron November 29, 2015
4
Answers

I would suspect that it is because of the fine stranded (compared to solid copper) wire design, but manufacturers are usually more than happy to answer these kind of calls... Give them a ring: you will most likely be connected to someone who loves to share their passion for wire design, and especially "your desire to use it properly/safely" :-) But Beware: Have a cup of coffee in hand, and a chunk of time allotted for the call... you might learn a lot more than you bargained for :-0

So when you go to Home Depot they will cut to length you need?

Asked by Diane October 24, 2015

Answers

Yes, you can buy it by the foot or by the spool. The by-the-spool price is less than by-the-foot so if you need a longer length it might be cheaper to buy a spool even if this means you'll have cable left over.

Exactly what it should be. It seemed like it took forever, but just because I wanted it so badly to finish my project. It works very well.

Nice and supple cord wire. Easy to handle and form into a power cord for my generator use.Would have given 5 stars, but it is not UL rated. Maybe UL does not rate this type of cable, but I wonder. Appears sturdy and easy to deal with.

I made a generator power cord with this 8/4 Flexible heavy 4 strand wire. This is for a 50 amp generator. I could have bought a cord online for about $100, but I was able to buy the heavy 50 amp plugs and this cord for about $70. This is heavy duty, quality cord. Heavy duty protective outer casing, and heavy duty # 8 wire (4 wires inside ) to safely handle 50 amps. I'm very happy with this purchase, and would buy it again if I need to make similar components for my standby generator project.
