English term or phrase: telescoped by
Termine estratto da un brevetto di cui non riesco a trovare una traduzione soddisfacente:

"The cable is telescoped by the sheath along the entire lenght thereof".
Maria
sfilato/scorre
Explanation:
Uhm... poco chiaro. Di solito "telescope" dà l'idea di qualcosa che esce/rientra in altro componente. Ma qui hai "by the sheath" e non mi è chiaro come la guaina possa essere l'agente. Dunque potrebbe essere un "by" nel senso di prossimità?

Il cavo "scorre" lungo la guaina?

viene fatto rientrare attraverso la guaina


Explanation:
To telescope = far rientrare


Il cavo viene fatto rientrare attraverso la guaina ...

"By" lo interpreto come "through" quindi "attraverso".
