What is Twisted Pair Cable?
The cable we have today has evolved over many versions using a variety of different materials and procedures.
We look to our past inventions and then strive to make better version of equipment to adapt to our ever changing needs of technology. Twisted-pair cable was invented in 1881 by Alexander Graham Bell. It is the common application you come across in most category cables.
As name indicates there is twisted pair of cable which arises question what it is and what’s its purpose …
Twisting of cabling is “making pairs of wires inside cable by twisting two wires around each other “, all the way to length of cable. custom length is usually 1000 feet but you can get it in any length desired.
Twisting enhance cable performance by eliminating crosstalk or interference. It occurs when other cabling is around and upon current passing their electromagnetic field generates and interferes with the parallel cables
During network cable installations, you may be placing cables too close resulting in one cable picking up some irrelevant noise from other cables electromagnetic field .it changes current patterns from usual and reducing cable performance
To deal with this problem twist was originated and implemented in cables to avoid obstruction in cable networking.
