2/0 600V/2 kV DLO Diesel Locomotive Cable RHH/RHW Power Cable
The 2/0 dlo cable is a heavy duty diesel locomotive cable with the ability to supply up to 600 volts of power. Available at a minimum length of 10 feet and a maximum length of 1000 feet is a 2/0 AWG cable. This versatile cable weighs 543 lbs per 1000 feet and is highly flexible because of the copper conductor which has been taken through the annealing process. The cable has one conductor only and is protected with EP insulation and a CPE jacket. These protect the cable against oil, chemicals, abrasion, alkalis and acids.
Key features of the 2/0 dlo cable

- EP rubber insulation
- CPE jacket
- Approved for CT use
- 600 volts
- Temperature range of -300 C and 900 C
- 342/24 conductor stranding
This diesel locomotive portable power cable comes with only one conductor. The conductor is made of fully annealed stranded tinned copper. The copper has been annealed to help the cable become soft. A soft and flexible conductor is easy to cut and bend according to one’s needs.
The cable size is 2/0 AWG and can transmit up to 600 volts at 300 amps making the cable ideal for heavy power supply. The 2/0 dlo cable can be used for a wide variety f tasks because the conductor ranges between 8 AWG and 777 MCM. The conductor stranding is 342/24 and the outside diameter makes it easy to fit in a circuit duct as it measures 0.678 inches only. This tinned copper conductor has been made in line with the AAR -598 and ASTM B 33 standards and thus the cable is totally safe for use.
The insulation of the 2/0 dlo cable has been made with a premium grade Ethylene Propylene (EP) rubber. This is a special rubber in that it protects the copper conductor from being affected by water, oil, alkalis, acids, abrasion and all kinds of chemicals. Another factor making the ethylene propylene rubber the most ideal insulation is that the EP not only protects the conductor but also the end user from being electrocuted and also from short circuiting.
Jacket of the 2/0 dlo cable is made of chlorinated polyethylene. This is a very flexible and sturdy rubber with outstanding features. CPE has the ability to resist UV lights, sunlight, abrasion, chemicals, water, acids and alkalis. Together with the EP insulation, they make the cable perform as expected even in harsh environments. The jacket also allows one to use the cable in both wet and dry locations as it can operate a low temperature of -300 C and at a high temperature of 900 C. one outstanding feature with CPE is that during combustion it releases a special compound making the cable not to be consumed by fire. This ensures the cable remains safe.
Certification and industrial approvals
This diesel locomotive cable has been constructed according to various international standards. This is to ensure safety for all parties involved. The following are the bodies and standards that the 2/0 dlo cable is in accordance with;
- UL 44 type RHH/RHW-2
- ICEA S-95-685/ NEMA WC 70
- C(UL) RW90
Available in bare copper, FT4 and special colors upon request, the cable is used in motor leads, diesel electric locomotives, petro chemical drilling rigs, mining and other industrial equipment. Generally this cable is used in the mining and industry areas as earlier briefed. As a 600 volts cable it is used for heavy duty power supply for machines that have engines operating with diesel.
