Heluwind® WK Powerline ALU is a diesel locomotive (DLO)-like power cable made of finely-stranded, flexible aluminum, which offers the performance capabilities of a standard copper cable but at a fraction of the cost. The installation advantage of this cable is one length can run from behind the drip loop in the down tower area directly to the inverter in the tower base. It requires only one splice (between the copper loop cable and the power line), and a crimp cable lug to connect the power line to the inverter. Constructed using a finely stranded aluminum core and wrapped with specially formulated, heat-resistant insulation and outer jacket, the DLO is durable with resistance to UV-light, oil and fire. More features include: operating temperature range of -20°C (flexing) and -40°C (fixed) to +105°C (both); 10x cable diameter (flexing), 4x cable diameter (fixed); recyclable (ROHS); and, halogen-free (LSZH). Available in two standard types, 0.6/1 kV and 1.8/3 kV, which feature an abrasion-resistant and cut-resistant outer jacket, it may be ordered in bulk or pre-assembled.
