filled cable
A cable that has a nonhygroscopic material, usually a gel, inside the jacket or sheath. Note 1: The nonhygroscopic material fills the spaces between the interior parts of the cable, preventing moisture from entering minor leaks in the sheath and migrating inside the cable. Note 2: A metallic cable, such as a coaxial cable or a metal waveguide, filled with a dielectric material, is not considered as a filled cable.
