Abstract

A technique is described whereby a hook and loop cable ensemble provides protection from abrading in cables, such as used in a cantilever robot gimbal cable harness. The concept is an improvement over prior techniques, such as the use of Teflon (E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co.)spiral wrap, bundling of the wire cable, use of expandable braided sleeving, tubing etc.
