Twisted Pair Cable

Twisted Pair Cable 1 Category 5 cable is constructed using eight 24 AWG insulated conductors (four pairs), enclosed by a thermoplastic jacket.  Each of the four conductor pairs is twisted together to reject electrical interference or "noise" from sources such as power wiring, fluorescent and HID ballasts, motors and other electrical  equipment. The EIA/TIA-568 standard identifies fiveTwisted Pair Cable 2categories or types of copper cable and components, but Cat 5(100 MHz 100 ohm unshielded cable) has become synonymous with copper teledata systems and is the most widely used.
