Abstract

This unit removes the shielding from small diameter coaxial cable without damage to the insulation or center conductor. The cable, consisting of a center conductor 1, a plastic fluorocarbon tube 2 of TEFLON*, and an outside copper shield 3, is placed inside a hollow conductive tube 4 of slightly greater diameter than the outside shield. A wire 5 attached to tube 4 is connected to one side of capacitor 6. The latter is charged by connecting the other side to power supply 7. Wire 8 connects supply 7 to probe 9. Upon applying probe 9 to shield 3, capacitor 6 discharges and vaporizes such shield. The amount of shield 3 removed is controlled by the magnitude of the charge on capacitor 6. *Trademark of E. 1. du Pont de Nemours & Co.
