What is important about a cable shield in moving applications?

This depends on what kind of movement is involved. If torsional movement is involved, winding the shield around the stranding element is the most durable approach. In the case of movement in an energy chain, a very flat braiding angle is best because the braiding can open and close like a pair of scissors when the cable is bent and the shield is then able to move without exerting any tensile force on the wires.
