A strung wire dicorotron having a snap-in wire assembly, as shown in Figures 1 and 2, provides ease of installation and replacement in the field. In the cross-sectional side view of Figure 1, the wiring assembly 10 is snapped into deformable insulating holders 12 (see Figure 2 for end view) mounted on support structure 14 and held in place by lips 20. One end of the dicorotron wire 16 is resiliently held taut by spring 18 in sleeve 22, the other end is removably mounted in sleeve 24. The sleeves are held firmly in place by holders 12 and lips 20 of support structure 14. Voltage is applied to the dicorotron wire 16 through electrical coupling 26. Elongated cylindrical recesses 28 in the insulating holders form stops 29 to prevent the sleeves 22, 24 from slipping out. Additional straps or latches (not shown) may be added to lock the sleeves in place.
