Abstract

A conductor is formed in a serpentine path on a flexible sheet. The sheet is easily wrapped around a cable with the lengthwise direction of the wires parallel to the length of the cable. The ends of the conductor are connected to a device that produces a signal that simulates electrical noise. If the cable is susceptible to electrical noise in normal operation, an observable fault will occur in the apparatus associated with the cable.
