Locomotive Cable

DLO Wire and Railway Locomotive Cables manufacturer in India

There are various cables and wires available in the market for different applications. Each one of them has its particular purpose and characteristic. Locomotive Cable is one of them. They are also known as DLO Cable or diesel Locomotive cable. They are rubber insulated and rubber jacketed flexible cables. They are mostly used in railway locomotives. Diesel is used by these 444 DLO Cable to drive generators to power electric motors that turn the wheelThese cables are used to efficiently transfer the power from generator to electric drive motor. 373 DLO Cable can work as a substitute for the welding cables that are frequently misused when there is a demand for flexible cable.

Locomotive Cable

Diesel locomotive cable manufacturers recommend these cables as they have a high voltage rating of 2000V. The maximum continuous conductor temperature of these 535 DLO Cable in a dry location is 90 degrees C and in the wet location, it is 75 Degrees C. They display outstanding resistance to oil, alkalis, acids, and heat. Moreover, these 535 Mcm DLO Cable are also resistant to flames and abrasion. They are also used in drilling rigs, railroads, onshore and offshore applications, shipyards, power and control jumpers, and motor leads. Locomotive Cable is said to be more expensive and heavy when compared to copper cables. Welding cables and type W cables can be considered as alternatives however they have their own drawbacks. Out of these two types, type W can be considered a better alternative as they are durable and have a double layer of insulation that is thicker than the Diesel Locomotive Cable.

When compared with welded cables locomotive cable manufacturers in India recommend these DLO Wires because they display better resistance to corrosion when compared to the welded wires. They also carry dual ratings which the welded wire does not have. 777 DLO Cable produced by us is passed through various tests to conform to their properties. Our team of experts ensures that the raw material used in them is also procured from reliable sources and tested before using them. Railway Locomotive Cable is supplied by us throughout the world to be used in various industries at an affordable price. The product quality, prices and the timely delivery of these products has created trust among our customer and has made us one of the well known Railway Locomotive Cable manufacturers in India.
