electrical shielding of cables

Cable production: shielding, braiding, armouring

The electrical shielding is carried out by means of a braid or an spiral. Alternatively shields of metallised tapes (usually with a drain wire) can be made for cables for fixed installation. For mechanical protection a braid or armour with steel wire (galvanized or stainless steel) can be produced. And as torsion protection plastic fiber braids can be integrated into the outer sheath.

For cables and wires in high temperature applications we use wraps and braids made out of glass or ceramic fibers as insulation and mechanical protection.
