The 373 DLO cable is a 2,000-volt wire built to function in a wide range of environments. It is extremely flexible with copper wires tightly stranded into compact bundles. These copper wires are coated with tin and fully annealed in compliance with code B33 of the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM). This 373 DLO cable is easily portable, making it a choice wire for offshore and onshore oil drilling, transit vehicle wiring, earth-moving electric machinery, and wiring in railroad cars. This cable is popular because of its ability to resist abrasion and withstand severe weather conditions.
The 373 DLO Cable functions well in power supply applications for as long as the voltage remains at or below 2,000V. It finds great use in conduits of cranes and hoists, motor leads, power & control of jumper cable, shipyard applications, telecom power supplies and arc welding supply leads. Some of its characteristics that make it an excellent choice of cable for these applications include its near-immunity to abrasions, rough-handling & cuts, flame retardation, and oil resistance.
Another characteristic that makes the 373 DLO cable stand out is its ability to function perfectly in both dry and wet environments. It meets the industry standards set by the Insulated Cable Engineers Association (ICEA) -75-381 for multi-stranded cables. This wire also meets the requirements set by the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) as well as the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
In addition, the 373 DLO cable is accepted by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). Other industry approvals that the cable has received include the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) RW90 at 1000 volts, and the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) type RHH/RHW-2. The wire is also designed to pass both the VW-1 Vertical Wire Flame and the FT4 Vertical Flame Tests. All these industrial approvals make this cable a choice wire for many industrial applications across countless sectors.
