1.5.2 Vented Cable Precautions

If the cable needs to bend during installation, ensure the vent tube does not get kinked inside the cable. Do not allow the vent to become squeezed or flattened inside the cable. Flattening or a kink in the tube can cause erroneous barometric compensation. To avoid crimping the vent tube, do not bend or coil the cable tighter than a 25 mm (1") radius.

A specially designed Support Hanger Bracket is supplied with each Wellhead for securing the Vented Cable when deployed. See section 8 for instructions to install the bracket.

During installation, be careful not to nick the cable on a sharp edge. Cutting through the protective jacket of the cable can cause moisture to access the wiring inside, which can cause communication issues, or moisture to travel down the cable.
