With WesBell, you can purchase your DLO 2/0 online and reap the benefits of a reliable connection with a high voltage rating.
DLO (Diesel Locomotive) cable contains tinned copper strands and is dual insulated with EP / CPE insulation. The double layer of insulation adds protection for severe outdoor conditions for mining and earthmoving equipment installations. DLO cable is also used in shipyards and as motor leads, but sees its primary use in diesel-electric locomotives. It’s rated for 2,000 volts and 90C.
The DLO 2/0 is 0.819 inches in diameter, making it among the smaller DLO cable sizes. With a lower ampacity, this cable is ideal for small electrical needs.

What Is a DLO Cable?
When DLO cables first entered the market, they were exclusively used for diesel-electric locomotives. With time, these cables have grown in popularity for other diesel applications.
All DLO cables offer the same construction. They use double insulation with EPR and CPE to make a corrosion-resistant coating that functions well in many environments. The thin copper conductor strands introduce flexibility, while the tinned exterior eases adherence during lug application.
While all DLO cables offer a 2000 volt rating, they cover a range of sizes to fit your needs. Check out our full selection of DLO cables.
Find the Proper Cable for Your Applications
To ensure the DLO 2/0 cable suits your needs, there are a few characteristics you want to note on your equipment. Whether you’re handling locomotives or powering a telecom system, you should understand:
- Voltage: This value determines how much electrical force your device needs to create a current. Your cable should meet this requirement for efficiency.
- Current-carrying capacity: For the safety and function of your machinery, you should understand the amperage capacity of your equipment.
- Conditions: The jacket of your wiring needs to withstand environmental factors like heat and water. The DLO 2/0 resists exposure to acids, oils and sunlight for long-term use.
