Industrial building managers need the right wires, fittings and switches to make repairs. Laboratories need circuit breakers and push buttons to create electrical components. Field workers need portable power supplies to keep operations up and running when wired electricity is not available. Whatever your electrical needs, Grainger has you covered.

Answer: 
Use "Drossbach E-Z pull Split Loom" sold by Grainger. !/4" to 1/2' round. Push the cut side on the edge of the knockout all the way around. Cut the tubing a little bit longer than the knockout hole so that it pushes against itself where it will meet. This will help it hold itself in place. Works great.

Answer: 
Rone,

Size AWG #14 will do the job, it's hold 15A and you want 10A , but the best is AWG #12, it's hold 20A.
Do NOT use smaller size that AWG #14. Note that AWG # 12 is bigger size that AWG #14, it's has more capacity on AMP.
Grainger sell extension cords ready to plug and use, just select the one you want.

Answer: 
Need to know how long the cord is also. If it is really long(100 ft or more) and the outlet is far from the distribution panel you could have low voltage at the end of your cord. Low voltage could damage power tools and cause some electronics to not work at all. Using the larger size wire will cause less voltage drop. If it is short than the 14AWG wire will work fine.

Answers

Answer: 
Passive Infrared (PIR) Vacancy Sensors automatically turn lights ON (as individuals enter), then OFF (as they leave) after a space becomes vacant and a preset time delay elapses. Push-button controls set ambient light threshold on wall-mount units; LED indicates status. Automatic sensor time delay adjustment eliminates need for manual adjustment, and helps prevent false offs when time delay is too short for activity level. Simple switching from Auto to Momentary Off mode. Returns to Auto mode 30 min. after the last motion is detected.

In the Search box of Grainger.com, look for "Passive Infrared Vacancy Sensor".

Answer: 
Take a look at Grainger Catalog No. 25L178. It's an occupancy/vacancy switch intended to replace an existing On-Off switch while still fitting inside the existing switch electrical box. This switch appears to be a new product for Grainger and it sells for about one-third the price of their other offerings. But be aware of the 240 Watt power limitation if you do decide to use this switch. You might also want to buy Grainger's Item No. 6A677 Wall Plate (less than a buck) which has the right size cutout for the switch and also matches its color.

Answer: 
You want to run some 240 VAC British power tools off of the 120 VAC power supplied here in the United States, correct? Take a look at Grainger Catalog No. 18C924. It's a power transformer with a 2 to 1 turns ratio, meaning that it will take 240 volts and step it down to 120 volts, or in your case, take 120 volts and step it up to 240 volts. The transformer is rated at 1500 Watts. Check the nameplates on your power tools to verify that their power requirements (input volts X maximum current draw) don't exceed the 1500 Watt power limitation of the transformer. Note that it's the nature of these kinds of transformers to last a very long time, so once you buy one, you'll probably never have to replace it.
