SECTION 26 05 20 – CABLES FOR INSTRUMENTATION
1. Size cable and its conduit to keep pulling tension within manufacturer's
recommended limits.
2. Use cable of sufficient length to make a continuous run. Splicing of shielded
signal cable will not be permitted.
3. Furnish a separate raceway system for shielded signal cable. Do not run in
the same conduit with power cable.
4. Where telemetry cables are run in the same duct bank with power cables,
use galvanized steel conduit. Use junction boxes and "LB" fittings in
manholes to maintain a continuous steel raceway system for signal
cables.
5. Ground cable shield at termination of instrumentation cabinet only using a
soldered pigtail with spade lug for ground connection. Solder joint and
ground connection should be visible.
B. Telemetry and Instrumentation Signal Systems
1. Separate conduit and wireway runs are required for this category. All wiring
is to be isolated from all power systems.
C. Control Wiring
1. Control wiring may be pulled in the power conduits and wireways providing
the highest voltage of the adjacent wires is not more than 120 volts.
D. Power Control Systems
1. The wiring of this category (single conductor, or multiple conductor) is to be
installed in accordance with the NEC.

ETHERNET CABLE
A. Installation
1. Comply with NECA 1.
B. Cable Installation:
1. Install exposed cables parallel and perpendicular to surfaces or exposed
structural members and follow surface contours where possible.
2. Make splices, taps, and terminations only at indicated outlets, terminals, and
cross-connect and patch panels.
3. Pulling Cable: Do not exceed manufacturer's written recommended pulling
tensions. Do not install bruised, kinked, scored, deformed, or abraded
cable. Do not splice cable between termination, tap, or junction points.
Remove and discard cable if damaged during installation and replace it
with new cable.
