Abstract

A shielded low resistance battery cable is disclosed. This cable is designed to provide a very low voltage drop from the computer system unit to an external battery package. This cable also includes a braid to provide the shielding necessary for an electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) enclosure from the computer system to the external battery package.

Shielded Low Resistance Battery Cable

      A shielded low resistance battery cable is disclosed.  This
cable is designed to provide a very low voltage drop from the
computer system unit to an external battery package.  This cable also
includes a braid to provide the shielding necessary for an
electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) enclosure from the computer
system to the external battery package.

      The shielded low resistance battery cable consists of a 1/0 AWG
copper conductor, a thermoplastic or rubber insulating layer, a
tinned copper braided shield over the insulator and an outer jacket.
The wall thickness of the insulator requires a minimum thickness to
withstand the pressure of large frame grounding clamps and to keep
the braided shield from shorting to the conductor.  The outer jacket
is designed to meet Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and Canadian
Standards Authority (CSA) requirements (Figure).
