Power Equipment Whips

As more energy efficient products continue to flood the marketplace, EPCO responded in the summer of 2019 by introducing the Power Equipment Whip (PEW). This new, lower cost equipment whip was developed to electrically connect two (2) or more devices using 12 AWG conductors which cost-effectively supports the transfer of electrical power without using 10 or 8 AWG heavier gauge conductors.

How It’s Made

Power Equipment Whips (PEW) are very similar in looks, fit, form, and electrical functionality to our Air Conditioner Whips. They are manufactured using 1/2” flexible non-metallic conduit and are available in either 4- or 6-foot lengths.

The PEW labor-saving capabilities offer exceptional crush- proof qualities and are provisioned for immediate installation. A very basic application enables a contractor to connect a power source to a variety of equipment or devices in an environmentally sensitive (damp or wet) hazardous location that requires a secure electrical connection. Our PEWs can also be used for direct burial applications.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:
  • Heat Pumps
  • Fluid Management Systems
  • Compressors Motors
  • Submersible Pumping Equipment
  • Swimming Pool Devices, and similar equipment
  • Industrial Blowers
  • Indoor/Outdoor Industrial or Commercial Equipment
  • Food Processing Equipment
  • Mining Operations
  • And more...
