Does it exist
 
Looking to find out is a cable exist that has at least 7 wires.....Looking to create a snake that has three plugs on one end associated with three receptacles on the other end. basically three extension cords in one run.

I'm sure it exists, but good luck finding any.

A piece of half-inch "seal tite" conduit with boxes on each end. You can pull the conductors in yourself, and terminate whatever connectors you need at the boxes.

RZE, how many times are you going to ask the same question? Multiple solutions have been provided here in the past threads you have started.

LOL I didn't even realize it was the same poster!

I like the seal tight solution. I bet stranded would hold up better to extension cord type of use.

Well that is a start. Might want to contact Belden and ask if someone near you sells this by the foot.

Where do you want to use this cable? If a rubber extension cord will do, the stuff comes in any number of conductors (go to an electrical supply warehouse)

Guessing your refering to SJO cord.

cable
 
Lots of this stuff used in the entertainment industry, which is what you want it for. Check the link below or google "socopex cable" (a kind of connector). You can buy just the cable (commonly in 16, 14, or 12 guage) or many companies will make up whatever finished cable you want. This stuff is used for portable lighting because it is MUCH lighter than SJO cord.

Wow, completely forgot about socapex cable! That would be the way to go (if you can afford it) since most socapex cables I have seen will run 6 circuits.

BTW, 100' of socapex cable is NOT light! I work for a company that owns 10 100' socapex cables and an assortment of 50's and 25's.

That's true, theatretech, but before this kind of cable, mults were often made of 'elevator hoist' cable. Much heavier, not much better than a hod of 12/3 sjo. If you work for a company doing that kind of work, you probably get to muscle around some lengths of 4/0 type W as well :(.
