The new coil cords are molded with an adhesive that bonds with the cable to eliminate the need for a spring. Die-cast sleeves also increase dimensional stability and wear characteristics.
"Competitors often produce coil cords using stamped terminals with minimal thickness," said Bob Dobrow, business development manager for power delivery systems for Grote Industries. "Their plug bodies are subject to crushing and do not prevent water from entering. We have engineered our new coil cords with extremely durable materials, such as advanced polymer jackets and solid brass terminals.
"The advanced polymer jacket material is designed to perform flawlessly between 55 degrees below zero to over 190 degrees Fahrenheit and the terminals are corrosion resistant, while providing superior current-carrying capacity with minimal voltage drop."
