Overview

The CABLE2CBL-L is a 22 AWG, two-conductor cable with a Santoprene jacket and an aluminum Mylar shield. The conductors are stripped and tinned and have black and white insulation colors. This generic cable can be spliced to phone lines or used to connect SDI-12 devices (signal only).

The "-L" on a product model indicates that the cable length is specified at the time of order.


Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Whenever possible, purchase a sensor with the desired cable length. Some sensors have a user-specified cable length, whereas other sensors have a set cable length.

    Sometimes, an old cable can be replaced with a new, longer cable.

    Generally, additional cable cannot be spliced onto the existing cable because:  

    • Some sensor cables have bridge completion resistors at the pigtail end
    • Some sensors are calibrated based on cable length
    • Sometimes the color in the insulation is not the same as that visible at the pigtail end
    • It is possible to introduce errors or malfunctions depending on the integrity of the splice

    Splicing cable together increases the likelihood that water may enter the cable and cause shorting, corrosion, and some other potential issues, which in turn can cause measurement issues.

    Because of the potential issues, do not splice any sensor cable without first contacting Campbell Scientific to discuss the sensor in detail.
