1.4 Communication/Vented Cables

Communication Cables contain power and communication wires, as well as a vent tube running the length of the cable for the vented sensors. The vent tube and wires are jacketed in polyurethane, providing durability and protection. The cable is 8 mm (0.320") in diameter, while the connectors are 20 mm (0.790") in diameter.



The Vented Communication Cables have a vent tube to surface with a Gore vent cap to ensure airflow through, while preventing moisture from entering the tube.
