Removing outer sheath on screened cables
The screening of electrical cables is especially important. It is used in all types of signal transmission connections where the voltage induced by an exterior electromagnetic field may affect the signal transmitted. This provides the necessary electromagnetic protection for installations in control circuits, electronic equipment connections, computer systems, etc.
In some cases, the outer sheath cable stripping on a screened cable may present some difficulty due to the adherence between the outer sheath and the braid.
SUCCESSFUL TERMINATION OF SCREENED CABLES
To help you ensure the best results, screened cables from Top Cable include a ripcord under the outer sheath. As can be seen in this video, the ripcord facilitates the removal of the outer sheath without damaging the inner braid.
Cables with ripcord ease the removal process of the outer sheath. Once removed, the screen is in perfect condition and your cable is now ready for termination.
HIGH RESISTANCE TO TRACTION
The ripcord presents a high resistance to traction, allowing the correct tearing of the outer sheath when pulling it.
Some of the screened cables including ripcord are SCREENFLEX 110 LiYCY VC4V-K & 200 VC4V-K, TOPDRIVE® VFD (EMC) ROZ1-K (AS) , TOPDATA VHOV-K and VOV-K and TOXFREE ZH Z1C4Z1-K AS, just to name a few.
