1. Slide the pressure plate and
grommet over the end of the
cable. If using –C cable, push
braid back three inches so that
braid is on opposite side of pressure plate.
*If using CWM cable, cut the
cable four inches from the last
module point*
Note: The pressure plate and end
cap have different size curved
surfaces on the top and bottom of
each piece designed to give a better fit on process equipment. The
side with the smaller radius curve is
for use on pipes with diameters up
to three inches or flat surfaces. The
other side is for sue on pipes with
diameters of three inches or more.
4. Slide the pressure plate and
grommet towards the end of the
cable leaving 5/8” of the cable
past the end of the grommet.
2. Score the outer jacket one inch
from the end of the cable. Remove the jacket to expose the
braid. Unravel and trim the braid
flush with the outer jacket. Pull
any strands of braid back towards
the outer jacket.

cut a “VEE” notch between the
buss wires.

the pressure plate to the end cap.
6. Using a fastening device, fiber
reinforced electrical tape (Chromalox FT-3 or equal), secure the
