Cable braiding question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I finally got a load of 3mm cable braid in black and red and am going to attempt to single braid my psu 2nite.

I was going to braid one of the spare cables that came with the psu just to see how it went first but it has some sort of plastic cylinder on it that looks hard to remove, here is a pic:

700

Anyone got some ideas as to how to remove this?

Also, I got 3mm mod/smart braid with 3mm 3:1 heatshrink, and it seems to be a little hard to get the heatshrink over the braid. Did I get the wrong size of heatshrink or is this ok?

Cheers guys!

I guess there's some capacitor under that heatshrink. Not sure how you're gonna remove that, but I think there was someone who placed those caps inside the PSU.

Actually that's a ferrite bead that's used as a choke for electrical noise. I'm guessing that's a 8-pin PCI-e power or EPS cable, in which case it would make sense to give a cleaner power supply but in reality it isn't a necessity.

once you cut off the heatshrink that's around it, you'll probably be able to slip the wires out of it (of course after removing the pins from the connector housing).

Ah ok. I was able to remove it with a knife but it was really well glued on and took a bit to get it all off!

What about the size of heatshrink, is 3mm too small? Thanks!

For sleeving individual wires on a power supply, 3mm is fine.
