Control Cable Glossary
Coaxial Cables: These are control cables with inner conductors with a surrounding of tubular insulation and consist of a flexible material allowing the cable to be bent.
Component Cables: Include excellent impendence tolerance and shield resistance with great performance.
Composite Cables: These are shielded with care to allow protection whilst the cable carries a component signal.
Copper Cables: Made from twisted pair copper wire, we have the copper cable wires that are electric power cables.
DVI Cables: These use a digital protocol in which the desired illumination of pixels is transmitted as binary data. It will read each number and apply the relative brightness appropriate to the pixel when display is driven at its native resolution.
Ethernet Cables: This is a standard cable often known as 8P8C and RJ 45, and are used commonly to connect networks and computers together.
HDMI Cables: High Definition Multimedia Interface cables is a compact audio and video interface used to transmit uncompressed digital data, which can help it appear differently or at a higher quality.
HDTV Cables: These use the same unique TMDS encoding protocol used in DVI to transport video and audio information over the same interconnect. These cables are used with HDTV’s to add quality picture and audio.
Insulated Cables: Insulated cables use insulation as a part of the cable to help shield the wiring from interference.
Jumper Cables: These are used to connect to large alligator clips that provide power from a charged battery to a discharged battery in a vehicle.
Lighting Cables: Can carry a variation of low to high voltage. These cables allow electricity to flow and transmit from the generator to the light source.
Monitor Cables: A monitor cable is a way for information and images from your PC to be transferred and displayed onto your monitor screen. They require the use of special cables and ports that fit into the monitor correctly.
Network Cables: Network cables are used to connect a network device to another. For example, connecting your printer to a computer.
Patch Cables: These are a section of a cable that is used to connect an individual computer, printer or other device to a network. Often, these cables are made out of Cat 5 cable, which is commonly found in most network cables.
RCA Cables: These are commonly used to carry S/PDIF-formatted digital audio that consist of coloured orange plugs, which differentiate them from other typical connections.
Shielded Cables: These are a special kind of copper telephone wiring used in some business installations. They are shielded with a covering that offers protection against any potential damages, prolonging the life of the cable significantly.
Speaker Cables: The cables get an amplified analogue audio signal, which is carried by two conductors. They are often configured and designed with attention to the correct polarity, in order to get optimum sound quality from them.
Stainless Steel Cables: These cables are fibre optic with flexible stainless steel coating for increased protection. Stainless steel jackets/coating provides additional protection to the general wear and tear of a cable, extending its life.
Steel Cables: These can be used for various applications and are often used for connections that use cable in a rugged environment.
Telephone Cables: These are the vital cables required for a telephone to work. Without these there is no connection.
TV Cables: These are important to the powering and display of a television and must be used in order to have the television used in the way it is intended to be.
VGA Cables: These cables are used to carry analogue component RGBHV video signals, a display data channel digital clock and data.
Video Cables: Designed to transmit maximum signalling energy, a video cable signals a 75 ohm source to a 75 ohm load, attempting to do so with minimum signal loss.
Wiring Cables: Transmission of electrical power often relies on this. Wiring cables are an assembly of two or more electrical conductors, which are generally held together with an overall sheath.
