What Is a DLO Cable?
Aptly named, DLO cables were exclusively used for diesel-electric locomotives when they first entered the market. Since then, they’ve become popular for other diesel-based applications.
Every DLO cable has the same construction. They consist of thin copper strand conductors with a tinned exterior and double insulation with EPR and CPE. These materials make DLO cables durable and flexible. The tinned exterior on the copper strands makes lug attachment easy.
DLO cables come in a wide range of sizes for various purposes. Check out our selection to find other diameters.
Finding the Right Cable for Your Applications
If you’re not sure if the DLO 3/0 cable is right for your needs, there are a few characteristics you should confirm on your equipment. Whether it’s mining machinery or a locomotive application, you will need to know:
- Voltage: This measurement represents how much electrical force your installation needs to introduce a current. Your cable voltage should match your machinery needs for optimal efficiency.
- Current-carrying capacity: How much electrical current will your device need to carry? Your cable ampacity should be equal to or greater than the amp requirement for your installation.
- Conditions: Factors like climate and liquid exposure affect the jacket material requirements for cables. The DLO 3/0 resists damage from elements including oils, acids and heat.
