How to measure your power cable length
There’s more than one way the industry measures induction power cables, unfortunately creating confusion. Some measure the hose length.
We prefer to go with the overall length, and by that we mean we measure from copper terminal flare to the terminal flare edge on the other side of the cable.
This flare-to-flare method is an accurate means of determining exactly what length you need.
If you have a part specification that looks something like 20C – 120 – 4, the second number is typically the overall cable length. In this part spec example, 120 represents 120 inches for cable length.
