German term or phrase: bevorraten
I was under the impression that this meant 'to stock up' but I don't think that is appropriate here.
These are instructions for installing a sensor (Messzelle):
PG-7-Verschraubung lösen und das 2-adrige Kabel durchführen dabei 5 cm abisolierte Messleitung in der Messzelle bevorraten.
Any help with 'bevorraten' would be appreciated.

Explanation:
or
providing for an additional 5 cm ....

Sounds to me like the specs are calling for an extra (or additional or spare) 5 cm of bare [stripped] wire inside the sensor - sort of like a reserve. See if that works within your text.

connect to power / supply with power


Explanation:
I think they mean that the wires should be supplied (bevorratet) with power. Since the instructions are formuletd a little complicatedly it could also be possible that they mean to have the wire connected for taking measurements. I do not know if power is required for that.

You will have to see from the rest of the context what suits better.
