The fine wires aren’t too bad if your wrap a bit of copper tape around the outer sleeve, and solder the fine wires to that. Solder your lead onto the copper tape. For the other lead you have to scrape the phosphorus coating off of the inner core, but once you do it’s easy to solder to. Shrink wrap the whole thing and bob’s your uncle.

I intend to mount my mp3 trigger in an antique crank-operated phone that has a big, beautiful magneto dynamo in it which actuates a solenoid to ring the phone’s bells. I’m assuming that this’ll put the mp3 trigger at risk for all kinds of induced-current-related shenanigans. The mp3 trigger will be mounted below the magneto, and a trigger line and the audio output will run up the body of the phone, past the magneto.
From my research thus far I’m thinking build the esd protection diode array from the app notes, a ferrous metal cage that wraps around both sides of the board to divert magnetic fields, and perhaps shielding on the trigger and audio lines. Overkill/Underkill? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah! Ya bigots! It’s appalling! A disgrace!
The system favors the lucky! And possibly the patient, the visually accute, and the radioactive… =)
Lol. One of mine was an abstract arrangement of grey and black rectangles. =)
