Further conduction of the line shield at the interruption point
If shielded lines must be interrupted, the shield must be continued via the
respective plug housing. Only plugs suitable for this (HF-tight version with good,
durable contacting of the shields) should be used.
Normally only suitable plugs and plug housings may be used with the interruption
of the line shielding for the continuation of the shielding. If an interruption of the
shielding and a twisting of the lines is absolutely necessary in exceptional cases,
the line must be screwed extensively to a shield bus before and after the plug
The following picture shows the principal structure of such an arrangement.
