We manufacture level controls for the petrochemical and food processing industries. The pictured unit has a probe that is inserted in the tank and has electronics that can be mounted up to 5000 feet away with your cable. Customers order the length to suit their application and we cut to order. We bought your equal to Belden 8761.

Diesel Locomotive Cable (DLO) & Marine Installations

DLO Marine Application

Sending a BIG THANKS to our customer, Art, who sent us this picture of his Allied Seabreeze 35 sailboat cruisin’ the northeast bay.  Art chose to buy Diesel Locomotive Cable for his sailboat’s anchor windlass.  An anchor windlass is a machine that restrains and manipulates the anchor chain and/or rope on a boat, allowing the anchor to be raised and lowered.

Here is what Art had to say about the diesel locomotive cable.

“The DLO (Diesel Locomotive Cable) is for a newly installed anchor windlass. I used diesel locomotive cable for its corrosion resistant qualities. Each copper strand is tinned. The salt water environment has made tinned wire the standard for marine installations. It’s a 12 volt dc system so the amperage is high. The pictures show the hook up to the reversing relay in forward cabin which will have a varnished mahogany box covering it. A second picture is back aft near the battery bank which shows the 70 Amp isolation breaker. The cables are run in a galley locker pretty much out of sight.  I’m happiest when I have a project!”

Thanks for the info, Art! We hope you have a fantastic sailing season!

Diesel Locomotive Cable (DLO) is also used for many other applications such as:  electric locomotives, diesel generators, drilling & oil rigs, railroad wiring, cranes, motor leads, and plenty more.

THHN and Welding Cable for Wiring Solar Array Projects

solar with thhn and welding cable

We really enjoy these pics that were sent over from our friend Michael in Southern California. Michael did a massive solar array installation on his home & decided to buy #2 THHN Copper Building Wire along with 4/0 welding cable for his battery cables.

He also created an entire blog about the process of buying & installing all parts for his solar project. Michael gave us a great recommendation which was fun to see and greatly appreciated !

Here is what Michael had to say:

“The wire run from the panels to the charge controllers is over 180 feet.  Sourcing the wire for this run took some time.  I initially was going to run 4 gauge wire.  The plans call for 4 gauge wire.  When I went back and rechecked my calculations, I realized the voltage drop would be almost 5%.  Not acceptable.  3 gauge wire would do it but I decided that I wasn’t going to take any chances and ordered 2 gauge wire.  When it comes to wire, I have found there is only one source,  Wire And Cable Your Way.  They have the best service, the best prices and they ship for free on orders over $1000 and they are FAST!  When I realized I needed to run a thicker wire. I called up Seth and he got on it.  He also called back to make sure I was taken care of.”

We recommend you checking out his blog if you are interested in learning about the process of installing a solar panel for your home. It’s very informative!

It was fun doing business with you, Michael!

BTW – if you are planning any electrical installation at home, we highly recommend you consult with a local electrician first.  They can advise you on current state electrical codes and which type of cables are suitable for the application.

Wire & Cable For Wind Farms & Renewable Energy Projects

wind turbine farm

We here at Wire & Cable To Go take pride in supplying wire & cable for renewable energy/solar energy projects. From small home solar panel installations to big wind farm projects, we share a strong passion for clean renewable energy!

With that being said, we were very happy to receive these great photos from our friends & customers out in Hawaii who sent the above photos of wind turbines on a wind farm project they worked on for over a year. Their mission was to bring clean renewable energy to thousands of homes in the area and from what I hear their mission was accomplished!

They gave us last look on the job and we were able to ship them thousands of feet of Tray Cable (THHN/PVC) & XHHW MCM Cable on the same day they ordered. Plus, they needed the cable to arrive in 2 days so the project wouldn’t be held up and we expedited the shipping with no problems at all!

Are you working on a wind turbine or solar panel project?

If so, we recommend checking the specs on the application and see what types of wires are needed. While some applications require PV Solar Wire & USE-2 Solar Wire others do permit the use for the cables below which we cut by the foot at no extra charge, and can ship out the same day!

If you have questions about your solar energy project please do not hesitate to contact us!

Vertical drops for SOOW cords allows for easier industrial equipment installation

soow cord vertical drop

We’d like to extend a BIG THANKS to Dan in Wisconsin, our friendly loyal customer who sent over photos of the 4/4 SOOW Portable Cord 600V being installed on a vertical milling machine in his company’s warehouse. Dan likes using Wire & Cable To Go because we cut all the cords he needs to the exact length at no extra charge and he always receives his cords the day after he orders. Here is what Dan had to say about the photo above & the SOOW cord he decided to buy:

The cable being installed here is 4AWG/4-cond SOOW. It is being used to run a CNC VMC (vertical milling machine). Most of the other vertical cords you see in the picture are various types of SOOW being used to run other VMCs, CNC lathes, tapping machines, and drill presses. Using vertical drops for the cords and air allows for easier/less-expensive installation, and making moving the equipment easier. We are very pleased!”

Stage Lighting Cable & Our Future Generation

stage lighting cable

We here at Wire & Cable To Go enjoy hearing what our customers create with the wire they order. Our customers are resourceful, creative, handy, and all engineers in their own right! From homeowners, to business owners, young students to highly skilled professions we hear all types of stories on how they are all using wire & cable.

Recently, we were happy to hear from an up ‘n’ coming 11th grader named Zac, who has a burgeoning event production business around town in PA!  A young entrepreneur at heart, he has a passion for sound and lighting production and takes a class at school which gives him the opportunity to work on an electrical issue he was having at his gigs. Like many people in the event/entertainment production field, Zac had his eye on the Stage Lighting Cable for the application.  Here is what the young fella’ had to say about his latest school/work project which, by the way,  is still pending approval from his teacher:)

I work in lighting and sound production. I do everything from ballets and musicals to rally’s and school dances. A lot of the gear we have been using lately as our company continues to grow is starting to draw more power than the venues we work at are set up for. So to solve my problem I have constructed a power distro. This will allow me to tie directly into the main service panel at a venue and draw my own power (of course checking what they are already drawing to be sure to not over draw the service). The cable I purchased from Wire & Cable To Go is the #4 AWG Stage Lighting Cable UL/CSA. I’m using it as the main feed into the panel. I installed camlock connectors on tails and made other tails that I can tie in with. It’s been working out great!”

Keep rockin’ on, Zac!
Maybe we’ll catch a big show of yours down the road!

Your pal,
