Cables Can Carry Vibrations to Isolated Systems

Vibrations introduced into an isolated system via cabling are a common problem for sensitive instruments.  Cables can carry vibrations from an auxiliary piece of equipment (such as a pump or fan) into the chassis of a sensitive instrument. Cables can also transmit noise — vibration, acoustic, or EMI — from walls, the ground, or other ambient sources. This is called parasitic noise. Parasitic … Continue reading
