    How to correctly splice into shielding of multicore

    Jet

       

      Using VeSys design, I am having difficulties with splicing into the shielding of a multicore cable. I have a wire going from the connector pin to the multicore symbol block  in the schematic.  VeSys creates a node there, but  when I export this data to VeSys Harness, it does not show the wire at all.  Any help is grealtly appreciated.

          It really depends on how the multicore is constructed and terminated, does the multicore shield terminate directly in the connector or is something like a solder sleeve with a drain wire used?  To fully answer your question it may help to see the drawing, but here is what I typically do:-

           

          Assuming the shield is the braided type that goes into a connector you show this as a Wire or Screen wire (you can even change the line style as I have done so that it looks like a screen), this is then passed over to the harness and treated as a wire.  One key point to remember is that the shield (if you want it to appear and be used in the harness) will need 2 end points, so in my example my shield is terminated in C100-14 the other end which is NOT terminated finishes at a splice which I have labelled SHD_01 to indicate that it is a shield (this splice would be shown in VeSys Harness as a single cavity splice which acts as a place holder for the shhield wire).
