Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Underground cable laying
French term or phrase: Tore masse câble
This is a one-off inscription on a simple cabling schematic diagram showing the 3 phases of power cable with terminations, presumably when they leave the trench in which they are laid. Sleeving is indicated around each conductor, and the 3 sleevings are wired to a single earth point.
On their way to the earth point, the 3 earth conductors pass through a small rectangle which I take to be the "tore" in question - and next to this is the caption, "Tore masse câble". N.B. The 3 earth conductors enter and exit the "tore masse câble", after which they are united at the earthing point.
I can't google my way out of this one!

(toroidal) ground choke
Explanation:
Chokes are used to block interference. I'm not sure I've ever seen them used in this application but they are toroidal in nature.

agree  chris collister: Often ferrite, sometimes toroidal, sometimes annular, sometimes in 2 halves for post hoc application. As TR says, they act as simple low pass filters, blocking the high frequencies

agree  meirs: Also called "common mode filter" - or is it a toroidal current transformer (for earth leakage) ?
