Abstract:

A reusable cable termination which will not add trace contaminants to samples of the environment. A main frame has two parallel immovable grooved discs with a crossover area so that a cable can pass smoothly from one disc to the other. Transition segments, which are portions of a third immovable disc, provide a turn of controlled radius so that the cable leaves tangentially from the discs. The free and supporting end of the cable are secured by bowspring clamps. The transition segments and discs provide capstan action to unidirectionally amplify tension on the cable. The material of the termination is of a material of which has the necessary mechanical strength and corrosion resistance.
