1/0 600V/2KV DLO Cable
1/0 DLO cable is a severe service cable able to supply electric current of 600 volts at 260 amps within diesel engines. It is specially designed for wiring of diesel- powered engines. This versatile cable is 1/0 meaning it has only 1 conductor. This portable cord has been listed by UL and CSA and as such it is ideal for both internal and external purposes. The conductor is protected with insulation and jacketing materials that ensure the cable remains resistant to oil, water and is weather resistant too. The cable is available at a minimum length of 10 feet and at a maximum length of 1000 feet.

The 1/0 DLO cable comprises of only one conductor which is made of fully annealed stranded tinnedcopper. Annealing is a very important process that the copper is taken through to become soft. Dealing with a rigid conductor makes it difficult to carry out the installation and termination process. Annealing therefore makes it easy to bend and cut cable as per the user’s needs. The conductor strandingis 266/24 and this specification is in line with the AAR – 598 and ASTM B 33 international standards. The cable is available in different sizes from 8 AWG to 777 MCM AWG. This makes it a versatile cable for a wide range of use and also saves you from repeat purchases. The outside diameter of the 1/0 DLOcableconductor is 0.640 inches.
The conductor is protected with EP insulation. Ethylene Propylene is a rubber with premium grade oil resistance. The insulation also protects the cable against water, ozone, sunlight, UV rays and abrasion. Apart from protecting the conductor, it also protects the user against electrocution and short circuiting. All these features make the cable durable regardless of the harsh environment the cable may be used in.
The insulation and the conductor of the 1/0 DLO cable is housed in ablack jacket. The jacket is made with Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE). CPE is known for its flexibility while at the same time possessing great ability to resist any sort of roughness that the surface may be exposed to. The CPE jacket is resistant to oil, moisture, weather changes, UV lights, chemicals and abrasion. Apart from these, the CPE produces a unique compound during combustion that enables the cable not to catch fire. This is an important safety measure that is in line with the regulations provided by the National Electrical Code (NEC).
Approvals and Certifications
The 1/0 DLO cable has been made in line with various international standards governing the construction of cables and wires. This portable is approved by the following standard bodies;
- ICEA S- 95-685/NEMA WC 70
- UL 44 TYPE RHH/ RHW -2
- C(UL) RW90
This diesel locomotive power cable is ideal for industrial and mining use. It can still be used in hot and humid locations as its temperature ratings range from -300 C to 900 C. its ability to be resistant to oil and water makes it the go to cable in diesel engines applications. The cable is utilized in petrochemical drilling rigs, motor leads, diesel electric locomotives, mining and other industrial equipment. It is available in bare copper, FT4 and comes in different colors upon request.
