The apparatus includes ...
An improved process for producing a protected optical fiber cable and the cable produced thereby. The process for producing the cable includes the insertion of a relatively thin optical fiber within a relatively large metal tube by means of flowing a fluid around the fiber and through the tube. As the water flows withi...
A switching circuit is provided to process a DC voltage and apply a low frequency AC voltage, having a trapezoidal waveform, to a co-axial cable transmitting the low frequency AC voltage to a load which may be powered by the low frequency AC voltage as well as a DC voltage. In one specific embodiment two of the switche...
A magnetic disk drive with a head stack assembly having a pass-through flex circuit cable is disclosed. The pass-through flex circuit cable is mounted to a side of the head stack assembly to extend straight forward in an initial unfolded position during handling and assembly and to then be folded over into a final posi...
A fiber optic cable having stress indicating means and a method for making same. The stress indicating means provides a cost effective method for determining whether an optical cable has been bent, stressed or otherwise mishandled, which may cause optical loss when the cable is placed in service. Broadly stated, the fi...
An optical fiber cable includes a core (22) comprising optical fibers (24-24) in ribbon or single fiber form and a sheath system (50) which provides flexibility for ease of handling and installation, strength to resist tensile and torsional stresses and rodent and/or lightning protection. The core is enclosed by a tube...
A method and apparatus for predicting the peak voltage at the load end of a power transmission cable having a power supply end and a load end, where direct measurement at the load end is not practical. The method samples the current and voltage waveforms at the power supply end of the cable. The current waveform is use...
