The cable shield is connected to the shielding enclosures of the host and the client at the ends directly, while the inner wire of the cable links the devices of the host and the client which are denoted by the resistances [R.
Not only do shielded cables have superior alien crosstalk margin out-of-the-box, but the alien crosstalk benefit provided by a cable shield is virtually unaffected by deformation and strain during or after installation.
EPIC ULTRA's features include an integrated brush-style cable gland, which provides a fast and easy method to terminate a cable shield with a 360-degree, low resistance contact area.
For example, when measuring capacitance of a length of coaxial cable, connect the HI terminal of the electrometer to the center conductor of the cable, allowing the cable shield to minimize electrostatic interference to the measurement.
