A complete range of cables is available for the P- and S-type electric CPT cones / piezocones. The string of cables connects the electric CPT cone / piezocone to the CPT-Logger data acquisition unit. Please have a look at the information underneath for detailed information on CPT sounding cables. If you are in doubt, please consult the Gouda-Geo sales department to determine the appropriate cable for the job.
Note that a well selected cable will save time and annoyance duringCone Penetration Testing . Unisex extension connectors allow for unlimited extension of the CPT cable string. The cables are made of highly flexible PUR-TPE cable material featuring high tensile strength and wear resistance. The cables are provided with high-quality Lemo connectors with gold-plated connecting pins and are available in any length or lay-out.
Selecting the Right Cable
Gouda-Geo supplies a complete range of cables suitable for both P- and S-type electric CPT cones / piezocones. The cables are available as in 10 and 18 pins configuration and in any length a client may need. Unisex extension connectors allow for unlimited extension of the CPT cable string.
Optimizing Cable Lay-Out
Be aware that a well selected cable will save time and annoyance during CPT testing.
A normal CPT cable string (described from (piezo-)cone to data acquisition unit) would compose of the following CPT sounding cables:
- Cable 1: Starting cable from the unisex 10-pins cone connector to the 10 or 18 pins extension connector. Recommended length: 1.8 m
- Cable 2: Extension cable with unisex extension connectors on both ends. Minimum length: 5 m, maximum length: 50 m
- Cable 3: From the extension connector to the data acquisition system. Recommended length: 1.8 m
Some special jobs may require special cables. Think in that context of CPT tests with special environmental or seismic adapters or CPT tests over water or in very soft soils, when casing tubes are needed to provide extra lateral support to the CPT sounding tubes. In these cases we recommend to use relatively short cables, enabling you to interrupt the CPT test and add casing tubes when required. Recommended length for the extension cables when working with casing tubes is 10 m.
