Scandent is pleased to introduce a range of High Temperature (110°C) high flexibility SDI Welding Cable. The product is 

SDI Welding Flex Cable

rubber insulated (R-E-110 to AS3808) and has fine stranded copper conductors for high reliability in flexing applications, class 5 or 6.

This is ideal for use between the welding generator and the hand-electrode and the work-piece, earth bond conductors. For use in the automotive industry, shipbuilding, Switchboards, transformers or other equipment requiring fixed installation wiring.

Welding cable is the electrical conductor for the welding current. It consists of a series of fine copper strands wrapped inside a non-conductive, durable jacket (typically some type of synthetic or natural rubber of various colors). The fine copper strands give welding cable more flexibility than other types of electrical conductors and the insulating jacket is designed to hold up to repeated movement over rough surfaces. As the current level increases (measured in amperage or amps), the diameter of the welding cable and resulting cross sectional area of the copper stranding needs to increase. 

Welding cable amperage rating, refers to the maximum amount of electrical current that a cable can safely conduct. Besides the cross sectional area, other factors that impact the ampacity of welding cable are its length, ohm rating (i.e., resistance rating), temperature ratings of the insulation material and the ambient temperature. Shorter cables can carry more current than longer cables of the same diameter. Welding cable is often rated with a conductor temperature of 75°C , 90°C or 110°C . While the copper wire itself can handle the high temperatures generated by higher amperages before sustaining damage, the insulation protecting them would melt.
