How to measure shield integrity

Question asked by jeffr on May 6, 2008
I was wondering if there is a good method to measure the effectiveness of a shield.  I have an application where three tangents of a cable have their shields tied together in a splice.  We have noted a performance difference when the cable is subjected to horizontal/verticle ESD coupling when the splice is not done well.  Is there a way using a network analyzer to determine a good cable from a bad one by testing the shield?
