The 4/0 diesel locomotive cable has a wide range of applications in various industries across many sectors. It is a 2,000 volts rated multi-stranded wire approved for CT use. This cable is fully annealed and has a copper conducted that is coated with tin. It is suitable for applications that function in temperatures of between -40°C and 90°C. It can hold out continuous exposure to temperatures of up to 90 Degrees Celsius. This flexible and durable wire is used in diesel-electric locomotive traction motor leads and other such machinery.
Some of the characteristics of this cable that make it a favorite wire in industrial applications include its abrasion resistance, oil-resistance and ability to function well in conditions of extreme weather. This multi-stranded cord can survive both dry and wet conditions. It is the preferred cable for conduits, trays and open air.
The primary use of this cable is in industrial wire applications for electricity generation, mining machinery control, engines in transit and rail cars, hoists and cranes, shipyard welding, offshore & onshore oil drilling equipment and other high-draw electric machinery. The 4/0 DLO cable has an exceptional impact resistance and can survive environments of rough-handling, cuts and unending scuffing. Furthermore, the portable wire is resistant to heat & flames, acids, chemicals and alkalis.The 4/0 DLO cable is fully compliant with code B33 of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). It has a conductor stranding of 532/24 and an insulation thickness of 0.085 inches. Its insulation material is made of Ethylene Propylene Wire (EPR) and it has a jacket material made of Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE). Other industry approvals for this durable cable include the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), the Insulated Cable Engineers Association, the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) RW90 at 1000 volts and the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 44.
