Heavy duty orange welding cable is used as an alternative to battery cable in electric vehicles, trucks, ag equipment, construction equipment and mobile equipment because of its higher voltage rating, and more flexible jacket.
Orange welding cable is dual insulated cable with inner water resistant thermoplastic elastomer insulation and outer neoprene jacketing, which protects from extreme temperatures and harsh environmental ingress. The orange jacket color is an industry standard indicator of high voltage cable. Welding cable is more flexible than battery cable, especially in cold temperatures, and is easier to route in tight spaces, which helps save labor time and costs. It is constructed with 30 gauge bare copper Class K rope lay wire, a fine stranding to help make it extremely flexible and space saving. Rated for 600 volts and -55° to 221° F temperatures, it is safe for vehicles and equipment that operate in the dead of winter, or extreme heat.
