      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.
