Abstract : The use of welded corrugated metallic sheath for communication and data transmission cables offers several advantages, some of which, but not all, are shared by conventional sheath systems. It is mechanically rugged, and offers excellent protection against crushing, impact, tension, and other physical damage. The specific mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range of suitable choice of metal, thickness, and design of corrugations. It is pliable, and can be handled by conventional methods. It is watertight and, with suitable terminations, vaportight, permitting pressurization. It offers complete electrostatic shielding and good electromagnetic shielding. In addition it offers protection against induced voltages due to lightning. (Author)
