FAQs
How do I check if the power cable is working?

To test if a power electrical cable is working properly, first be sure that everything is powered off and unplugged for safety. Take a multimeter and touch one of the leads to either side of the cable to test if the circuit is open. To test a cable for a short, touch both multimeter leads to the prongs on the male side of the cord.  

What size electrical cable do I need?

When it comes to selecting a cable, there are many factors to consider like length, diameter, capacity and more. To calculate the cable size you need, divide the voltage running through the cable by the target current. This gives you the required resistance. However, there are many free calculators online to assist you in cable selection. Contact a United Rentals representative for assistance in selecting the right cable for the job.

What size power cord should I choose for a generator?

Selecting the right cables for generators is simple: just choose a cord that matches the most powerful outlet on the generator. For example, if your generator has a 50-amp outlet, you will need a 50-amp power cord.
