Re: [TCML] X-ray high voltage cable available

Hi David, that’s a great deal and if I were still doing HV / mad science / pulsed power work, I’d be
snapping up some of it.

I have several lengths of this cable that range roughly in length from 25 to 65 feet. With the exception of a single end of one of these pieces, they do NOT have the Federal shockproof male plugs on the ends (for plugging into the female receptacles of the transformer and/or the X-ray tube head), but are all the thicker 150 kV rated stuff, around 3/4" to 7/8" outer diameter.

This threesome bundle is all insulated with thick rubber sheathing for the high voltage standoff, which is in turn wrapped in semiconductor carbon tape and a fine metal mesh (which is normally grounded for electric field shielding), then finally with a fairly thin rubber outer sheathing. I typically just solder the three inner conductors together as a single conductor unit at the terminations and peel back enough of the outer semiconductor and metal mesh to prevent inner conductor to outer shielding flashover.
