Power Cord Splitter

Power cords are a great way to provide power to a number of different machines and tools commonly used in the manufacturing world. Power cords themselves come in a number of different varieties and types, all with certain amperages and power ratings.

But often times we just need one type of cord for a number of different tools. This is where the right power cord splitter comes into play, and behind the perfect power cord splitter is a knowledgeable power cord splitter manufacturer who is willing to listen to your application and specifications in order to provide you with a power cord splitter that will go above and beyond your expectations.

The simplest way of describing a power cord splitter is to simply say that it allows the plugging in of two or more machines or tools into a single outlet. But there is a lot more that is going on in these power cords splitters than meets the eye.

Of course, the simple explanation covers exactly what the splitter is purchased for but a power cord splitter manufacturer must ensure that all of the amperages line up, the wire sizes line up, and a number of other factors match in order to keep the voltage loss levels at a minimum.

Not purchasing the proper power cord splitter can result in decreased performance from your machine or tool as it may not be getting enough power once the power passes through the splitter, and in the worst case scenario, your machine or tool will not work at all while connected to an improper power cord splitter.

For most applications you can find universal splitters that will cover a wide range of power cord types from NEMA 5-15P to 10A cords, but it is still very important to double check that the power cord splitter you purchase supports the rating of your current power cable.

The best way to ensure that you get the product you need is by consulting a trusted, experienced power cord splitter manufacturer who has a greater understanding of how power cord splitters function and what you might need for your unique application.
