Ludwik Jachimowicz: Construction of cable made of optical fibres. General Cable Corporation, Roy C Hopgood, John M Calimafde, Charles W Neill, March 27, 1979: US04146302 (48 worldwide citation)

This invention is a fibre optic communication cable in which the signals are transmitted by light. The glass fibres used for the cable are protected from breaking strain and from excessively sharp bends by supporting helically wound optic fibres on the inside of a tension element with provision by w ...

George Bahder, George S Eager Jr, David A Silver: Extruded solid dielectric high voltage cable resistant to electro-chemical trees. General Cable Corporation, Hopgood Calimafde, March 9, 1976: US03943271 (35 worldwide citation)

Extruded dielectric power cables installed underground have their life shortened by the formation of electrochemical trees in the insulation. Tree formation can be prevented if the insulation is initially dry and the cable construction is such that moisture cannot gain access to the insulation under ...

Ludwik Jachimowicz: Shrinkable electrical cable core for cryogenic cable. General Cable Corporation, Roy C Hopgood, John M Calimafde, Eugene J Kalil, June 21, 1977: US04031310 (32 worldwide citation)

This invention is a cable core made of two layers of helically wound strips of metal with one layer having a right hand lay and the other layer having a left hand lay. The angle of lay is such that the diameter of the core changes at a faster rate than the length of the strips change with difference ...
