Why Buy Power Cable Pigtails?

Why Buy Pigtails? 

Pigtails are the often overlooked offering from GenCable. With the proper understanding of what these cables are made for and what they could do for you, pigtails may be the exact solution you’ve been looking for.

Do you have a long run of cable that needs a connector on the end to fit perfectly in your space?

Have a tight area to needing connect power in or a bunch of wires needing to be tied into the circuit?

Need to patch existing lines?

That’s where pigtails come in.

What are Power Cable Pigtails?

Pigtail cables are short lengths of wire with a connector on one end and the opposing end has a lug or other capacity to be directly wired into circuitry. When you are patching or finishing an electrical line, your requirements will change from project to project. That’s why at GenCable.com, we give you a lot of options to tailor your pigtail to your project. You can choose your lugs, camlok gender, camlok color, and cable gauge as well as select from industry-standard 3’ and 6’ lengths.

Sometimes you will need a bare end wire with no lug to patch a spot directly. Other times, your circuitry will require a certain lug to be able to connect and fit your power source. With eight standard camlok connector colors you can choose to visually brand your pigtails for your use. Black, Blue, Brown, Green, Orange, Red, White, and Yellow connectors are all available when creating your pigtails.

We also offer five options for the opposite end of the CamLok in our Type W Power Cable Pigtails. That way you can buy the exact cable you need to connect your power lines. Leave the end bare or terminate with an Offset Pin, Shoo-Pin, 1/2″ Compression Lug or Center Pin.

Offset pins can help you squeeze the cables in tight wiring situations.

Shoo-pins flare out at the bottom with tight tops for easier insertion into your connection point.

½” Compression Lugs are seamless solid copper with tinned exterior crimped for easy termination.

A center pin offers a straight connection for you to connect your cables when space isn’t an issue.

Each job that brings you to GenCable.com will be unique and we get that. That’s why we offer so many ways to customize pigtail cable. You can find and purchase the exact power cable you need. Without pigtails from GenCable, you may need to cut wires on your own, wasting terminated ends or get stuck with some impossible wiring situations that require you buy pre-assembled products needing a lot more work just to make them work in your space.

We are here to make your life as easy as possible and your electrical source continuous as powerful, reliable and undiluted as can be.

Hopefully this article demystified some of your questions around our power cable pigtails and where and how you can use them. We hope to give you the easiest cable solutions you need to make your next electrically powered gig a success.
