The tab on the left hand column of the UJconsortium.com website for "UJ KIT / Cable qualified Combinations" provides a detailed list of the cables qualified and the interconnections between qualified cables. A similar tab is available for UQJ cable qualifications.
Both of these databases can be searched as single cable or double cable. The cable are selected from pull down menus and the result of the search identifies for the single cable search the details of the end specific kit (ESK) numbers, UJCM, tool kit and a list of the cables it is interconnected to. The double cable search provides the same information of associated KITs and UJCMS but also a comment on the status of the interconnection between the two and in particular highlights where the cables are NOT currently qualified. There is as a "KIT Search" function where the KIT number (i.e. 09002) can be entered and the title of the kit given (i.e UJ/UC Common component kit). There is also a "Fibre Search" database where combinations of fibres can be found. It is to be noted that while every effort is made to keep the information current, it is provided as guidance only. If you have any questions or require confirmation then please contact either the consortium coordinator or your supplying UJC member.
Where there are changes to the cable design or characteristics since original qualification, the UJC Member that undertook the original qualification ( Design Authority) should be contacted as to whether the changes affect the qualification status or not and what would be the required steps to validate or re-qualify the cable. Besides obvious cable design changes, significant changes are for example, but not limited to, a change in cable layers diameters such as the polyethylene, steel tube, copper tube; a change in polyethylene insulation material; a change in armour wire hardness, alteration in armour lay length that would affect the torsional characteristic of the cable, increase in design depth (working pressure), increase in NTTS or CBL (UTS). It is also important that the UJC is informed of changes to cable descriptions so that the correct KITs can be easily identified (for example SL101 & SL100 are now also known as SL12). Please contact either the consortium coordinator or your supplying UJC member for details of cables qualified and questions over current status. Read More
