About DLO Cable
DLO cable is single-conductor power cable used in tough industrial applications requiring rugged, yet flexible wiring. DLO wire is common in shipboard, mining, locomotive, power generation, and heavy machinery applications, so it must be able to resist the alkalis, oils, and acids common in these environments.

Diesel locomotive cable’s construction clearly reflects these requirements. Allied’s DLO cable features highly flexible fully annealed stranded tinned copper conductors. It has Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation and a Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) jacket. These materials not only resist chemical threats, but give the cable excellent abrasion and impact resistance as well.

Allied’s DLO cable is rated to 90°C wet/dry for continuous exposure, and can be used in applications that hit temperatures as low as -40°C. It is rated to 2,000 volts, and is listed as UL Type RHH/RHW cable under UL Standard 44. It is MSHA-rated flame-retardant and both RoHS and REACH compliant. In addition to these standards, it is also rated CSA RW90 (at 1,000 volts) and ICEA S-95-685/ NEMA WC70.
