Abstract : A housing assembly taking the place of strength members in cables for inserting electrical and/or electronic equipment. The assembly comprises cylindrical end terminations interlocking with cable termination pieces. The end terminations have strength members attached. The strength members comprise steel wire strands woven or braided in a basket-weave configuration. The strength members are attached to the end termination pieces by swaging an internal into an outside sleeve, and at the same time sandwiching the strength members between the sleeves. A flexible tube is inserted in the housing assembly to serve as a sealing surface for external water pressure. (Author)
