    There might be other definitions, but a power whip in the field is a
    cable running from a junction box too a device such as a light fixture
    or power pole coming out of the of a ceiling too feed say a cash
    register. They usually have a specialty plug that plugs into said
    device.

  3. In other applications is a length of seal tight conduit running from a floor
    mounted PDU or panel to a bell box with receptacle. Used like this it is
    more than likely run under a raised floor in a computer room.

    I was hoping that others would reply with creative definitions such
