Just curious - For a shielded cable, what approach have you taken to terminate the shield into a connector pin or backshell?
Here are a few things I'm working with and I'd love feedback if anybody has a moment:
In this instance, I've terminated both ends of the shield to their respective backshells. The shield symbol has a hyper hyper passing connection point so that the shield core in the cable reference can have continuity from one backshell to the other. It shows up in a from-to list properly then:
In the next instance, I terminate only one end of the shield core to a connector pin:
In this case, I use an identical shield symbol, except this one has a disconnectable circuit connection point. I give the symbol a manual mark of "FLOAT" or "NC" and then run the shield cable core to the pin:
Where I'm getting a little hung up is when i have to take either of these approaches with multiple shielded cables. An example might be if i had four twisted shielded pairs, and i want to twist all the shields together on one end and terminate it. Do you folks have any suggestions or ideas?
