Anyone see this before. Original cables installed in relatively new Siemens load center. There is a copper conductor coiled around the cable where it enters the load center. One end is tied to the cable connector. I don't see any code issue but I just don't get it. Any help in understanding this practice would be appreciated.

Is the sheath on those old cables conductive? Is this an attempt to make the circuit grounded?

If that's the equipment gr. from the cables and the panel is relatively new, why didn't they terminate on ground buss? Still kinda bonded, but the rx clamp screw is not even tight.

That would be hack work.

Now if the cables don't originally have an equipment ground and somebody just wrapped a few inches of bare to the cable and rx connector, well that's "Super Tard Hack Work!"
