A balanced cable where a pair of cables are twisted and the signal divides between them
Twisted-pair cable consists of copper wires surrounded by an insulator. Two wires are twisted together (the twisting prevents interference problems) to form a pair, and the pair forms a circuit that can transmit data. A cable is a bundle of one or more twisted pairs surrounded by an insulator. Unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) is the most commonly used type of twisted-pair cable. Shielded twisted-pair (STP) provides protection against cross-talk. Twisted-pair cable is now commonly used in Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, token ring, and other network topologies. See also CAT 5.
A cable consisting of individual conductors twisted in pairs around each other. The purpose of twisting the conductors around each other is to reduce the affects of crosstalk.
Is a type of balanced cable in which a pair of cables are twisted and the signal is divided between them.
Cable made from pairs of wires which have been twisted together.
A cable with two insulated wires twisted together and used for networks.
Two wires usually loosely spun around each other to help cancel out any induced noise.
A type of cable that is typically found in telephone jacks; two wires are independently insulated and are twisted around each other. The cable is thinner and more flexible than the coaxial cable used in conjunction with 10Base-2 or 10Base-5 standards. Most Ohio State UNITS telephone jacks have three pairs of wires; one is used for the telephone and the other two can be used for 10Base-T Ethernet connections.
