The KE Cable heating element is tension wrapped and covered with two layers of nonflammable Polyimide Film applied in reverse directions, then heat fused for moisture protection. A stainless steel and tinned copper sheath is then added for additional protection and electrical ground return path. The sheath is enclosed in a minimum 20 mil PFA abrasion and chemical resistant extruded jacket.

Can SRM/E5-2CT cable be cut to a 3 inch length and still work? What is the minimum length it can be cut to? How do you connect power to one end of the cable and how do you terminate the other end? I have same questions about KE12-240 cable.
