Cable Bend Radius is less than 5 times the Cable Diameter. Compare specific cable minimum bend radius to Minimum Cable Bend Radius for reel shown.
Cable Bend Radius is less than 10 times the Cable Diameter. Compare specific cable minimum bend radius to Minimum Cable Bend Radius for reel shown.
Cable Weight may be too high for the reel for this stored length. Calculate actual total cable weight and compare to Allowable Cable Weight shown.
