  1. :

    This plug was easy to wire up, and it makes a solid connection to the Reliance PB50 power inlet box. (This was expected since they are both Reliance products, but still.)I used this for building a single cable for hooking up two Predator 3500 generators in parallel. The 8/5 SOOW cord carries two hots, two neutrals, and one ground. Sheathed banana plugs are soldered to the hot and neutral ends for generator hookup.I’ve attached a photo showing that the two 8-gauge neutrals can fit together inside the neutral connector. (There’s a 10AWG jumper connecting the two hot wires to get parallel operation.) Also, this particular make of 8/5 SOOW cord fits comfortably inside the strain relief clamp and the housing; this was not the case for my earlier attempt using a fatter 6/4 SOOW cord.I’m not an electrician, but I want to point out one thing: Even though each hot wire carries at most 30 amps, the shared neutral may carry up to 60 amps of return current since both generators use the same phase (in contrast to a 240V generator where the neutral would carry at most 30 amps because the two hots are 180 degrees out of phase). This is why I upgraded to a 50-amp plug for this application.

    This went on the end of a 25 foot cord needing to carry power from a 10K generator. It’s easy to wire as the terminal points are color coded for the wire that should be attached. It can be a bit difficult to handle the short, thick wires, particularly if they are stranded. It has a rubber seal at the back that needs to go around the main cable body and a stress relief fastener inside the plug could be a bit more substantial. The seeming short length of the stress relief creates the difficulty of maneuvering the wires into place as it must be around the main cable body containing the individual wires. The directions contain torque specs for fastening the wires and the stress relief. Once I had it wired I checked it with a continuity meter and things seem fine.Overall, it seems a good value for a 50 Amp plug and I’m happy with it.
