What is Copper Tape Shield Cable?

     Most medium voltage cable is shielded some how.  One of the methods for shielding the cable is to utilize a copper table (can also be aluminum). As I've said elsewhere, if a cable has a copper tape shield, then it is beyond important that any splice simulate a copper shield as well.  You do not want to 'lose' hundreds of feet of wire because one foot splice wasn't properly completed!
