After 426 Ah (0.55 MGy) of operation in the SPring-8 storage ring, vacuum gauge cables were found to be damaged by radiation. To obtain a vacuum gauge cable resistant to long-term radiation, a vacuum gauge cable insulated with glass–fiber, which had an electric and mechanical quality better than that of a mineral insulated vacuum gauge cable, was newly designed and tested. As the result, the quality of the newly designed vacuum gauge cable remained unchanged after irradiation of about 1 MGy using a cobalt 60 source.
