Applications and Features:

RHINOFLEXTM Type G cable is a heavy-duty cable for use where flexibility and maximum protection is required. For use with with all portable, temporary, and permanent power applications such as mobile or stationary mining equipment, shuttle cars, mobile drills, pumps, roof bolters, conveyors, and any portable power where equipment grounding is required, It is ideal for use anytime extra-durable, flexible cable is required. Also suitable for continuous submersion in water. Embossed print legend for easy cable identification.
